I was sent from dentist for a crown. I wasn't sure why they could not perform it. The facility was clean, nice and friendly. I was shocked that I needed to have three office visits to complete the crown.
First visit was to drill and clean out the tooth canal. My Dr. kept taking little blades and twisting them in my tooth. I asked her what she was doing and she just said she was cleaning out the canal. She started with smaller blades and moved up to larger ones. I did not feel any pain.
They put on a temp crown while they made my porcelain version and also added some medicine to ensure the void would not get infected. They waited a couple weeks and I went back to make sure the canal was clean and healthy. They filled it and placed the crown. I had to go back a third time for the final check up. Overall, painless (minus lost time). I was shocked at the multiple visits, but happy with my new crown.
Do crowns move? It seems like it may have moved a bit.
