Cosmetic imperfections, discolored tooth enamel, severe dental stains, and minor defects that appear on your front teeth can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile’s appearance. If you find yourself feeling this way, you should consider setting up a consultation appointment with Dr. Mark R. Sheils.
During this appointment he can determine the nature of the cosmetic imperfections on your teeth and help you to understand the cosmetic dental options available at his dental offices.
This might include enhancing the faces of your teeth with porcelain dental veneers that can be shaded to mimic bright, white, tooth enamel. If a single tooth has been significantly compromised by a large chip, dental fracture, old filling, or new area of tooth decay, he might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown.
To do this Dr. Mark R. Sheils will remove the existing tooth enamel layer to create an abutment from the healthy dentin layer within. This will eventually act as an anchor point for the eventual dental crown.
Dr. Mark R. Sheils will then create an impression the abutment and the corresponding teeth in the area. This information will be sent to a professional dental lab where is a replica of the original tooth enamel will be created from a special dental grade porcelain material.
You will need to return to Dr. Mark R. Sheils’s dental clinic for follow up appointment after your porcelain dental crown has been completed. Then he will cement the dental onto the abutment with a strong dental adhesive.
