Teeth that are misshapen or suffering from significantly discolored tooth enamel can cause you to feel self-conscious when you smile. This can hamper your self-confidence in social settings.
In a situation like this, you should consider scheduling an appointment with a dentist like Dr. Jason Martin to explore the cosmetic dental restorations available at Lakewinds Dental. After assessing the severity of the problem, and the overall health of your teeth he can help you understand your treatment options.
In many cases like this, we may recommend restoring a single compromised tooth with a porcelain dental crown. The special material can be shaded to mimic naturally white tooth enamel.
The cosmetic restoration starts with removing the enamel layer of each tooth that needs restoration. This leaves behind a healthy core of dentin which will serve as an abutment capable of anchoring the porcelain dental crown.
A member of Lakewinds Dental’s staff will call you to schedule the second appointment when the porcelain dental crown is ready. During this session, we will cement it in place with a strong dental adhesive. This will effectively bond it to the dentin abutment.
If you live in Ludington, Michigan, and one of your teeth needs cosmetic restoration, you should call 231-845-7240 to set up a consultation appointment with Dr. Martin.
