Your smile’s appearance can significantly affect your self-esteem and self-confidence. If one or two of your teeth suffers from physical or cosmetic imperfections it could leave you feeling socially awkward. In a situation like this you can turn to Dr. Anglemire, Dr. Schafer, and the cosmetic dentistry treatments offered at Granger Family Dentistry PC.
Our dentists can quickly diagnose the nature and severity of the imperfection and present you with the most applicable cosmetic dentistry treatment. In the case of a single tooth with a dental fracture, discolored tooth enamel, or a mismatched filling, Drs. Anglemire and Schafer might recommend restoring the tooth’s appearance with a porcelain dental crown.
This is a relatively simple dental restoration where our dentists will remove the entire tooth enamel layer. This leaves behind a dentin abutment that will eventually anchor a porcelain dental crown in your mouth.
Once this is done, Drs. Anglemire and Schafer will cast a detailed impression of the abutment and the related teeth. This will be sent to a dental lab where your new dental crown will be cast from a special dental porcelain. A temporary crown will then be secured over the abutment to protect it.
A member of our team will call you in for a brief follow up appointment when the porcelain dental crown is ready. The temporary crown will then be removed and your new cosmetic restoration will be cemented in place with a strong dental adhesive.
