A Porcelain Dental Crown Can Cosmetically Restore a Tooth

Posted .

Each of your teeth plays an important role in helping you to chew the foods you eat. The teeth in the front of your mouth can also appear when you smile or make certain facial expressions.

When a single tooth has been affected by discolored tooth enamel, pronounced tobacco stains or a physical defect, it can have a negative impact on your self-confidence. Fortunately, Dr. Hoffmann and the staff at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas have years of experience offering esthetic dental services to people living in the area surrounding Charlotte, North Carolina.

After examining the nature and severity of the imperfection to your teeth, our doctor will present you with a treatment plan. If the issues are related to one or two teeth, he might recommend restoring the affected tooth with a porcelain dental crown.

This mode of treatment is designed to replicate and replace the original shape of the tooth’s enamel layer with a special porcelain material, which can be shaded to seamlessly match with the surrounding teeth.

The dental crown will be cemented onto the prepared core structure of the tooth. This abutment will provide the restored tooth with the same structure you enjoyed from the natural tooth enamel.

If you live in the area surrounding Charlotte, North Carolina, and you have one or more teeth in need of cosmetic restoration, you should call 704-364-3770 to set up an appointment at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas.
