The process for getting a non-metal ceramic crown typically involves two appointments. During the first appointment, our dentist in Miami, FL, will prepare the tooth by removing any decay or damage and shaping it to fit the crown. We will take an impression of the tooth and send it to a dental laboratory where the crown will be fabricated. In the meantime, the patient will wear a temporary crown to protect the tooth. At the second appointment, the temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent non-metal porcelain crown will be cemented into place.
