Procedure for Dental Crowns in Chico, CA
At your first visit, Dr. Surh will prepare your tooth for its new restoration. This involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel so your new crown will fit comfortably. Then he will make you a temporary crown to wear while a trusted dental lab makes your new tooth.
During your final visit, Dr. Surh will permanently place your crown and make any needed adjustments to it that will allow you to chew and eat with ease.
