Though technology exists to make a permanent crown within a couple of hours rather than two-three weeks, not all dentists have the expensive equipment to create same-day crowns. So, while a dental lab constructs your permanent, custom-made dental crown, you’ll most likely receive a temporary crown.
So, why would your tooth need a temporary crown? Well, the reasons for a temp crown make sense the more you know about the dental crown procedure. And once you have a temporary crown, you’ll want to know how to best care for it.
