An appealing smile plays to your favor in many of life’s social settings. This is even more important for people who work in sales, face-to-face customer service or other careers that call for direct personal interaction. A tooth that suffers from discolored tooth enamel, a mismatched filling, a chip or other visible imperfection can severely hamper your self-confidence.
One of the most effective ways to cosmetically restore an unappealing tooth’s appearance is to have Drs. Brandon and Feleppelle replace the tooth enamel with a porcelain dental crown.
To mount the crown, your dentists will first need to form an abutment out of the core of the tooth by removing all of the enamel with a drill. This post-like structure will later anchor the crown in your mouth.
Your dentists will then make a detailed impression of the area. This will be sent to a dental lab where your new crown will be custom made. A temporary crown will then be secured over the abutment to protect it while you await the completion of your crown.
A member of our staff will call you in for a brief follow-up appointment when the lab technician has completed the porcelain crown. The temporary crown will be removed and your new crown will be cemented into place.
