Sometimes a filling isn’t enough to save a tooth. If the enamel has been extensively damaged or decayed, or if the structure of the tooth has been severely weakened, it will often take a dental crown to restore the strength and stability that your tooth requires to function properly. Dr. Ponnaganti can design and place dental crowns in our Westchase, FL dental office in as little as two visits; read on to learn more about the process before you call to schedule a consultation.
Dental crowns can be placed for a variety of reasons. If we determine that you need one, we’ll begin the process by cleaning and reshaping the tooth in question. Small amounts of enamel typically have to be removed to make room for the crown. Afterwards, a mold or impression of the tooth is created and sent to a dental lab. We’ll call you back for another appointment once your permanent crown is ready; in the meantime, you’ll wear a temporary crown to protect your tooth.
