How long does it take to get a crown or a bridge?
Placing a crown or a bridge requires at least two appointments. We work with a trusted dental lab to create all of our restorations, and it usually takes a couple weeks for them to craft your crown or bridge and send it back to us.
At your first appointment, we'll adjust the shape of the tooth are teeth that are going to be fitted with the crowns. A bridge is a special type of crown that is held in place by additional crowns fixed to the neighboring teeth. We'll then take impressions of the shaped teeth and send these, along with images and Dr. Chitre's detailed instructions, to the lab that will create your restoration.
To protect your shaped teeth and keep you comfortable, we'll place a temporary restoration.
When your restoration returns from the lab, you'll return to our Frisco, TX dental office for your next appointment. At this appointment, Dr. Chitre will test the restoration in place to check that it looks good and fits correctly. When both you and Dr. Chitre are happy with the fit, we'll bond the restoration in place permanently.
You'll appreciate the comfort and esthetics of well-designed crowns and bridges at Stonebriar Family Dentistry. Call today to schedule an evaluation.
