Crowns, Bridges & Veneers

Call (952) 746-7891
  • Crown and bridges usually take 2 or 3 appointments to complete. On the first appointment the tooth/teeth are prepared and impressions are taken and a temporary crown is placed on your tooth/teeth.
  • You may experience temperature sensitivity, gum soreness and slight discomfort on the tooth/teeth; it should subside after the placement of permanent crown.
  • Whenever anesthesia is used, avoid chewing on your teeth until the numbness has worn off.
  • A temporary crown is usually made of plastic based material or soft metal. It could break if too much pressure is placed on it. The temporary crown may loosen or come off completely; if it does, save the crown and call our office. The temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth and prevent other teeth to move. If it comes off it should be replaced. To avoid losing your temporary, avoid chewing on sticky and hard food (chewing gum, ice). Try to chew on the opposite side of the treatment as much as possible.
  • After the permanent restoration is placed you may feel slight pressure for a few days. The bite will likely feel "different" directly after placement of the permanent crown, but if you feel discomfort on chewing on the tooth after 2-3 days call our office. Delaying the necessary adjustments may damage the tooth permanently.
  • Continue your normal brushing but be careful while flossing around the temporaries (remove the floss gently from the side).
  • Call our office if you are in pain or if you have any questions.
