When a single tooth suffers from discolored tooth enamel, a physical defect, or a cosmetic imperfection, it can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile’s appearance. This can hamper your self-confidence in social settings and curious to explore your cosmetic dental restoration options.
In a scenario like this, a professionally trained dentist like Dr. Alison Scott and Dr. Rhesa Bautista can assess the nature and severity of the problem to present you with an effective treatment plan. If it’s simply a matter of a single unappealing tooth, they might recommend replacing the enamel layer with a metal-free dental crown.
This type of cosmetic dental restoration starts with numbing the tooth and local gum tissues before removing the tooth enamel. The remaining abutment of healthy dentin will eventually serve as an anchor the dental work.
An impression of the area will be sent to our state of the art dental lab. It will serve as a guide for the dental technicians who will create the dental crown from a special dental grade metal-free material.
When it’s ready, you will need to return to Lasting Impressions Dental Group to have it cemented directly onto the abutment. This will complete the restoration process allowing you to enjoy the improved appearance of the previously compromised tooth.
