Will getting a crown impact my vacation much?

The crown procedure will effect your vacation minimally:

● Time required at the Dentist:

The procedure for a dental crown usually requires two visits to the dentist. At the first, you will be examined by the dentist, and the tooth will be prepared to receive the crown. This involves filing down the tooth that is going to be crowned and taking impressions of your mouth. The impressions are sent to the lab where your crown will be made.


When the lab has returned your crown (typically in a matter of days), you will go back to the dentist and have it fitted. The total time should only be a couple of hours. If your dentist offers CEREC CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture) technology you may be able to do the entire procedure in one visit.

● Downtime:

While the dentist performs the procedure you will be given a local anesthetic (like when you have a filling). Once this has worn off, you may experience some tooth sensitivity and/or slight soreness in the gum surrounding the tooth, but this is minimal and should diminish in a day or two.
