How are crowns attached?
Usually, your dentist will need to resize a tooth to ensure the crown fits over it. Your dentist will take an impression of your newly sized teeth or implant, where the crown will be placed. The impression is sent to a dental lab to create the crown. A temporary crown may be put in place while the impression is made.
When the permanent crown is ready, the temporary crown will be removed and the crown will be set and secured over the existing teeth or oral fixtures. This may take 1 - 2 weeks.
