We’ll take the time to speak with you before moving forward with any treatment. If a dental crown ends up being the ideal route to go, we want to make sure you’re fully aware and know what to expect.

Once the crown has been created, we will ask that you return for a second visit to our Ada dental office to have it properly cemented onto your tooth.
