Many of our patients have been curious as to why dental crowns take two weeks to get. To support your understanding about dental crowns and why installing them can take a while, we’ve put together this blog post of data for you.
Dental crowns are used as somewhat of a rounding out to your existing chompers. They cover, guard and toughen your existing pearly whites from the effects of destructive acids that can create periodontal disease if left unchecked. Dental crowns also rest on your pearly whites while you’re consuming food, and they’re put under extreme pressure when you chew. For these reasons, dental crowns need to be strong.
To make such a strong tool, we will take measurements of your teeth during your first in-office appointment, send the measurements off to an oral lab where they will make the dental crown at high temperatures and set up a follow-up appointment for the fitting of your crown once we have it from the dental lab. Getting your dental crown exactly right is vital to your health, and developing such a high-quality product takes some time.
