To allow time for us to prepare the tooth, design, and mill the crown we like to tell our patients to be prepared for a 2- 3-hour appointment. However, this appointment does not require the patient to be present for the whole time.

It takes approximately 1 hour to prep the existing tooth, 1 hour to design, mill, sinter, and polish the restoration and 30 minutes back for us to try in and cement the crown. Within that timeframe, there are 45 minutes to 1 hour where you can read a book or shop around the mall.

If by chance you cannot do a 2- 3-hour appointment, call the office and let us know. We can arrange the appointment to be 1.5 hours and you can come back to the office later that day or any other day you prefer for cementation.
