A Tooth in Need of Cosmetic Improvement Might Need a Porcelain Crown Restoration

Posted .

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you and it’s an important key to making a great first impression. If one of your front teeth has been afflicted with a chip, discoloration, or other visual imperfection, it could leave you wanting to explore your cosmetic options.

Fortunately, Dr. Nicole Furuta is well versed in a range of cosmetic dental treatment. In a situation where a single tooth has been afflicted with visual imperfections, Dr. Nicole Furuta might recommend a cosmetic dental crown restoration.

After examining the tooth to make sure there is no tooth decay, Dr. Nicole Furuta will use a drill to remove the entire tooth enamel layer. Then, she will make an impression of the abutment and any corresponding teeth in your bite pattern.

The impression will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians craft your porcelain crown. A hard, plastic, temporary crown will be cemented over the abutment to protect it.

A member of our staff will call you back in for a follow-up appointment when the crown is ready. The temporary crown will be removed and the new crown will be cemented directly onto the abutment.

If you have an unappealing tooth in your smile and you’re interested in a dental crown in Denver, Colorado, you should call 303-623-5636 to talk to a member of our team at Lodo Dental.
