WHAT IS A CROWN?
The crown of the tooth is the part that you can see above the gum line, while the roots lie below. When a natural crown is fractured or decayed and can’t be repaired by a filling, our doctors carefully craft and place an artificial crown to restore the function of the damaged tooth.
HOW LONG DOES A CROWN APPOINTMENT TAKE IN VIETNAM?
The procedure takes about 1-2 hours, similar to having a filling done.
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE ENTAIL?
Getting a crown is much like having a filling performed, both in length of time and comfort level. After the decay has been removed and the tooth is reduced in size, leaving only healthy tissue, an impression is taken for creating the final crown. A second appointment is scheduled for placement of the final crown. In the meantime, a temporary tooth is placed to protect the reduced tooth and allow for normal function.
