During your crown or bridge appointment the area will be anesthetized, initially, and the tooth, or in the case of a bridge the teeth surrounding the space, will be shaved down. The tooth or teeth are shaved down into a cylindrical shape and and then an impression or mold is taken of the prepared area. The mold is then sent to a dental lab and a bridge or a crown is fabricated. The lab will return the restoration in about 1 1/2 – 2 weeks. The restoration will then be tried in and cemented.
Our non-invasive methods allow patients to receive needed dental care with minimal interrupting to their daily lifestyles. In many cases, we can perform cosmetic or restorative dental treatments in just one visit to our Manhattan dental office.
