When we repair issues with the health and beauty of your smile, we want to ensure your restoration looks great and blends with your smile. In today’s blog, your Bedford, MA, dentist will explain how we create crowns that look natural, while also returning teeth to optimal health, function, and beauty.
When Does Your Smile Need a Crown?
Since the crown itself covers the entire visible portion of your tooth, we can use them to correct a wide array of cosmetic and restorative concerns. For example, we can offer a durable repair should a tooth become damaged, whether due to minor cracks or chips, or more severe breakage. We also have the ability to address cavities too severe for a filling, and also complete root canals for people with infected teeth. The restoration also addresses issues with the shape, color, and length of a tooth. If you have one or more missing teeth, then we can employ them to anchor a custom bridge in place, or to restore a single tooth dental implant.
The Benefits of Porcelain
We use porcelain for a number of reasons. For example, the material can be shaded to blend with the rest of the smile, and it’s translucent like tooth enamel. The material is also durable, able to absorb daily bite forces and pressures.
Crafting Your New Restoration
To create one, we begin by removing structure from the outside of your tooth. We then take detailed impressions and measurements of your tooth. We provide these materials to a skilled ceramist at a dental lab. The restoration is then designed and fabricated. A shade guide is used to ensure it blends with your smile seamlessly. We want a completely natural-looking appearance! When you return for a second visit, we will check the fit and then place it with a powerful bonding agent. With proper care and attention, we have the ability to keep the restoration strong and help it last for decades to come. You should brush and floss daily, cut back on sugary foods and drinks, and then undergo an exam and dental cleaning every six months. If you have any questions about how we restore a smile, then contact our team today. We want to help you enjoy your best possible smile.
