Discolored tooth enamel, minor dental fractures, or a discolored dental filling can significantly alter a tooth’s appearance. This can cause you to feel uncomfortable with your smile’s appearance and hamper your self-confidence.
In a situation like this, you should consider scheduling a consultation appointment with an experienced dentist like Dr. David Trebisovsky. After assessing the nature and severity of the problem, he can help you understand the best option for cosmetically restoring the tooth’s appearance.
In the case of a single unappealing tooth, he might recommend restoring and replacing the tooth’s enamel layer with a porcelain dental crown.
The special dental grade porcelain material can be shaded to appear like natural white tooth enamel. If you have dental stains on the other teeth in your smile Dr. David Trebisovsky might recommend a dental bleaching treatment to fully enhance your smile’s appearance.
The treatment process involves Dr. David Trebisovsky using a dental drill to remove the existing tooth enamel. This leaves behind the dentin core of the tooth which will serve as an abutment that will anchor the porcelain dental crown.
An impression will be made of the area to guide our off-site dental lab in the creation of your new porcelain dental crown.
A member of Dr. David Trebisovsky’s staff will call you to schedule the second appointment when the dental crown is ready. Then he will cement it in place a strong dental adhesive.
