Dental care, getting a dental crown put on
What is the process of having a dental crown put on? I was told by my dentist that I have new large size cavity in a tooth that had an old filling in it. He said that, he can do the filing but advises me to have the tooth crowned so that it protects my tooth from braking.
It is a bad tooth that I also put a small chip in it once. I am worried that having a crown will hurt. What does a dentist do to put a crown on? Do I have to do anything special to take care of it? Advise please
