The procedure for dental crowns usually takes 3-4 days, with appointments at your dentist on days 1 and 4, and any lab work in between. Clinics with on-site laboratories will be able to complete dental crowns in 1-2 days, but this may involve an increased fee as overtime may need to be paid to the lab technicians.To prepare your tooth for a crown, on your first visit your dentist will thoroughly clean and shape the tooth with a drill. Impressions of your teeth are made and sent to the lab, who use these to ensure your crown fits perfectly. Your dentist will fit a temporary dental crown.The dentist will remove the temporary crown on your second visit and will prepare the surface of the tooth to receive the permanent crown by filing it. The new crown will be firmly cemented in place once you and your dentist are happy with the crown for fit, shape and color.
