How long will porcelain crowns take?
We often recommend porcelain crowns to improve either the health or appearance of your smile. If you have a cracked tooth, broken tooth, deep decay, a root canal, or a discolored tooth, a porcelain crown can restore the health and beauty of your smile.
Because we value quality above all else, we will work closely with a highly reputable dental lab that specializes in restorations. We will take an impression of your tooth to provide our dental lab with the information they need to create your durable, high-quality restoration. We also take photographs and determine a custom shade so that your crown matches the rest of your teeth.
While our dental lab creates your crown, we will fit you with a temporary that will protect your tooth. The turnaround time from the lab varies and can take from one week to several weeks, but your temporary is designed to give you confidence and comfort during that time. Besides, we believe the highest quality is worth the wait, especially since your crown could serve you for decades to come!
Once we receive your permanent crown, we will attach it to your tooth and Dr. Richard Leung puts on the finishing touches, making any final adjustments, and polishing your crown so that it is perfect.
