Does getting a crown hurt?
At Summit Dental Group, we practice painless dentistry because we want to do everything to keep you as comfortable as possible. Having a dental crown placed does not hurt when it’s done by skilled professionals like Dr. Hilton and Dr. Marcincin.
The process of getting a new crown is really not that complicated. It does take a few visits to our office, but that is because your crown is carefully created at a dental lab, so we have to wait for this part to be completed.
When we prepare your tooth during the first appointment, we will numb the area so that you don’t feel anything. After that first visit, there usually is no need to use any anesthetic, but we certainly can if you are very sensitive.
Once the finished crown is placed, you will probably experience an odd sensation at first. This is only because the crown is a new fixture in your mouth, and it may take a day or two to get used to the feel of it.
Our doctors are very gentle and sensitive to your needs, and we will do everything to make sure you are comfortable throughout the process. If you would like more information about dental crowns and how they work, please give us a call!
