How long does it take to fit a dental crown?

Fitting a crown usually requires two visits to our office but can be completed in one (Cerec). Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.

On the subsequent visit we will remove the temporary crown, and then fit and adjust the final crown, and cement the crown into place. If a Cerec crown is the right choice for you, your appointment will be slightly longer.
