Before placing the crown on the tooth, we file the tooth down to make room for it. Then an impression of the tooth and the surrounding teeth is taken. A temporary acrylic crown is placed on the tooth. When the permanent crown is ready (1-2 weeks normally), the temporary crowns are replaced. A crown may last up to 40 years.
