Examining and preparing the tooth
At the first visit in preparation for a crown, a proper examination of the tooth is done.

Before the process of making a crown being the tooth is numbed with local anaesthesia. Next, the tooth receiving the crown is reshaped along the chewing surface and sides to make room for the crown.
The process of reshape game is depended on the type of crown you have selected.
If, on the other hand, a large area of the tooth is missing (due to decay or damage), your dentist will use filling material to "build up" the tooth to support the crown.
After reshaping the tooth, your dentist will use a paste or putty to make an impression of the tooth. Sometimes, though, impressions are made with a digital scanner. Impressions of the teeth above and below the tooth to receive the dental crown will also be made to make sure that the crown will not affect your bite.
The impressions or scans are sent to a dental lab where the crown will be manufactured. If the crown is made of porcelain, your dentist will also select the shade that most closely matches the colour of the neighbouring teeth. During this first clinic visit your dentist will make a temporary crown to cover and protect the prepared tooth while the crown is being made. Temporary crowns usually are made of acrylic and are held in place using a temporary cement.
