In 2 to 3 weeks, the permanent crown will be finished.
The patient will receive a local anesthetic to numb the area before the crown is placed. It will be secured to the existing tooth with cement to ensure a tight, secure fit.
You'll be the proud owner of a brand new smile when you look in the mirror the next morning. Crowns are durable and should last at least 10 years, with some lasting as many as 20 years. Care for your crown as you would your natural teeth. Brush and floss regularly and use an antiseptic mouthwash to rinse.
