How Does it Work?
The first step is to come in for a consultation. Dr. Potts or Dr. Schamel will examine you and may require x-rays. Your dentist will determine whether you are a good candidate for a crown.
If you choose traditional crowns, your tooth is prepared, a mold of your tooth is taken and sent out to a laboratory for creation. On average, it can take two to three weeks to receive completed crowns. Once it arrives, we will make an appointment with you to place, fit, and bond your crown.
