Dental Crown What to Expect

Receiving a dental crown will require 2-3 visits to our Owings Mills dentist office. Treatment may vary depending on the procedure the patient requires. We will conduct a thorough dental exam to diagnose your condition, the root cause of your tooth pain, and more. Only after your dentist has examined your mouth can she recommend the appropriate treatments. If dental implants are required, Dr. Chibb will coordinate with Dr. Roham Rafat for the surgical phase of treatment.

Dental crowns are custom designed and fabricated for personalized results. Dr. Chibb will consider the shape, size, and color of your adjacent teeth to create a prosthetic crown that will fit naturally with the aesthetic of your smile.

Dental molds will be taken and used to design a dental crown that will fit comfortably and securely. The molds are sent to a dental lab for the fabrication phase of the dental crown. Once the crown is complete, the patient will return to our Owings Mills dentist office to have their crown permanently secured.

Dental crowns are highly durable and allow patients to enjoy a varied diet without restriction. Dental crowns can last for many years with proper oral hygiene and routine dental health exams.
