Broken Dental Crowns

User Level:
Posted by: lstkelly  (9 years ago)
I currently have 2 dental crowns and my dentist said they need to be redone. They are right next to each other and he said both are broken. My question is will it hurt to have them redone at the same time, neither tooth has had a root canal. What is the procedure when they redo crowns. I'm freaked of this whole thing. Is there a way they can do one and then the other?

If in fact they are really badly broken and need replacement it may only make sense to have them done together. He will have to cut them both off but if using lab manufactured crowns will only need to have you in for one appointment, one freezing to prepare the teeth and one impression. The lab when making them together can insure the contact between them is correct and you will save 2 appointments

Generally, crowns do not hurt. It would be better to have them redone at the same time. The dental crown procedure involves preparation/ taking impression and seating the crown.
