Many of our patients have asked about why dental crowns can take two weeks to get. To support your understanding about dental crowns and why installing them can take a while, we’ve amassed this blog post of data for you.
Dental crowns are used as somewhat of a supplement to your existing pearly whites. They cap, protect and fortify your existing chompers from the effects of harmful bacteria that can form periodontal disease if left unchecked. Dental crowns also sit on your chompers while you’re chomping away at your meals, and they’re put under extreme pressure when you chew. For these reasons, dental crowns need to be incredibly durable. To create such a durable dental appliance, we will take measurements of your teeth during your first in-office appointment, send the measurements off to a dental laboratory where they will develop the dental crown at extremely high temperatures and schedule a follow-up checkup for fitting of your crown once we have received it from the dental lab. Getting your dental crown exactly right is vital to your health, and fashioning such a high-quality product takes time.
