When a single tooth suffers from discolored 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 you may want to explore your cosmetic restoration options.
in a case such as this, our professionally trained dentist, Dr. Ahmad J Akram can assess the nature and severity of the problem and present you with an effective treatment plan. If it’s simply a matter of a single unappealing tooth, the dentist might recommend replacing the enamel layer with a porcelain dental crown. This type of cosmetic dental restoration starts with the dentist 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 used by a dental lab to create the crown from special dental-grade porcelain material. When the crown is ready, you will need to return to Lonestar Dental Center to have it cemented directly onto the abutment. This will complete the restoration process. Then, you will be able to enjoy the improved appearance of the previously compromised tooth.
If you are in the Humble, Texas, area and you have a tooth in need of cosmetic restoration, you should call 281-233-0333 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Ahmad J Akram and his staff.
