Congratulations! You've decided to restore your tooth with a durable and aesthetically pleasing new dental crown in Bonita Springs, FL. You might be wondering what's in store for you now? The good news is that the process is relatively straightforward, and here's what you can expect.
The First Appointment
Your tooth crown will require two appointments with Dr. Gostigian. During your first visit, he ensures the tooth he's working on is numb while he prepares it for your new crown. He will take impressions of your tooth and create a temporary crown for you to wear while your permanent one is crafted at a trusted dental laboratory. The process is efficient and comfortable, and the lab makes your crown exactly to Dr. Gositgian's specifications, so it fits properly and blends seamlessly with your smile.
It typically takes the dental lab one to two weeks to complete your permanent tooth crown.
The Second Appointment
When you return to Bonita Grande Dental for your second visit, Dr. Gostigian will place your dental crown, which doesn't take as long as your first visit. At this time, he will make any necessary adjustments to your smile to ensure that your bite is working comfortably. Once your crown we place your crown, you will be able to eat, chew, talk, and smile with ease again.
Taking Care of Your Dental Crown
Now that your beautiful smile is restored, you'll want to protect your investment with consistent daily brushing and flossing.
Just like with your natural teeth, it's also important to avoid biting into hard foods. Be sure to cut foods like apples, carrots, or hard bread into smaller bite-size pieces. You will also want to avoid sticky foods that could pull your crown off.
Regular dental checkups with your Dr. Gostigian will ensure the health of your new crown.
