Understanding the Procedure
At PGA Dentistry, we hold the quality of our care to the highest standard. Your first appointment with us will involve a comprehensive consultation, digital photographs, digital x-rays, and a comprehensive examination with Dr. Ajmo. A customized treatment plan based on your needs and personal requests will be created just for you. If necessary, a sedative may be prescribed to keep you relaxed and comfortable.
We will first prepare your teeth, removing any decayed portions, and your teeth will be deeply cleaned and polished. Next, we will fit you with provisional restorations and give you a chance to wear them for a few days. This interim period will allow you to take note of the way the crowns look, how they affect your bite and ability to chew comfortably.
Next, we will send molds, photographs, x-rays, and detailed instructions to our quality ceramics laboratory, where your permanent crowns will be fabricated to the highest standards. In a few weeks, your porcelain dental crowns will be ready to be placed. We will do a final check of the fit and color of your crowns and, using high-quality dental cement, attaching them to your prepared teeth.
Caring for your dental crowns requires the same attention as your natural teeth such as brushing your teeth and flossing daily to keep plaque and bacteria from building up around your gums. We still suggest that you visit our Palm Beach Gardens office for a check-up once every 6 months to clean your teeth and crowns, assess the health of your gums, and help you maintain your good oral health.
