A tooth with a discolored enamel layer or other cosmetic defects can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile’s appearance. At the same time a tooth with a significant physical defect such as a large cavity or significant dental fracture can lead to significant discomfort and sensitivity.
If you are having a problem with one of your teeth, you should set up an appointment with a dentist like Drs. D. Robert Haas, Sarah Haas, and Melvin Burns. After performing a comprehensive oral exam they will carefully explain your treatment options.
In many cases where the tooth’s enamel layer has been significantly affected our dentist might recommend a dental crown restoration. The treatment plan is intended to fully replace the entire enamel layer with an alternate dental material.
If the treated tooth will be highly visible when you smile our dentist might use a porcelain dental crown. The material can be shaded to match the surrounding natural teeth.
Executing the treatment calls for them to carefully remove the existing tooth enamel. The remaining abutment of dentin will eventually serve as a solid anchor for the porcelain dental crown. After it has been prepared our dentist will cement the dental crown in place with a special type of dental adhesive.
