To ensure your tooth is properly protected, you should get a damaged crown replaced as quickly as possible.
During a dental crown replacement in Hamilton, Ontario, the dentist will take a look at your tooth and the crown to see what the problem is. Then, the dentist will remove the damaged crown, examining the tooth underneath. Similar to the original process, the dentist will mold a new crown that has been perfectly shaped to match the tooth before installing it, ensuring it provides optimal protection. The dentist will also review a few precautions that you should follow to make sure the crown is protected moving forward.
