Taking the Time to Make Dental Crowns

Posted .

Many of our patients have asked about why dental crowns can take two weeks to install. To assist your knowledge about dental crowns and why installing them can take a while, we’ve assembled this blog post of information for you.

Dental crowns are utilized as somewhat of a helper to your existing pearly whites. They cover, guard and strengthen your existing pearly whites from the effects of damaging acids that can develop gum disease if left unchecked. Dental crowns also remain on your pearly whites while you’re chomping away at your meals, and they’re put under intense pressure when you chew. For these reasons, dental crowns need to be incredibly strong. To develop such a robust dental apparatus, we will take measurements of your chompers during your first in-office checkup, send the measurements off to an oral laboratory where they will make the dental crown at extremely high temperatures and plan a follow-up appointment for fitting of your crown once we have received it from the dental lab. Getting your dental crown right is vital to your health, and making such a high-quality product takes time.
