Your smile’s appearance plays a critical role in many of your facial expressions. If you have an unappealing tooth, it can leave you feeling socially awkward. In a situation like this, you should consider scheduling a consultation with Dr. Gloria Stingley.
After examining the tooth and the other teeth in your smile, Dr. Gloria Stingley can help you understand your cosmetic dental restoration options. In many of these cases she can cosmetically restore the appearance of the unappealing teeth with a porcelain dental crown.
This will eventually replace the entire tooth enamel layer with a special type of dental porcelain. It can be shaded to appear like gleaming white tooth enamel. If you have dental stains on the other teeth in your smile, Dr. Gloria Stingley might recommend a dental bleaching treatment to fully enhance your smile’s appearance.
After numbing the tooth, Dr. Gloria Stingley will use a dental drill to remove the existing tooth enamel. This leaves behind the dentin core of the tooth which will serve as an abutment that will anchor the porcelain dental crown.
An impression will be made of the area to guide our off site dental lab in the creation of your new porcelain dental crown.
We will call you to schedule the second appointment when the dental crown is ready. Dr. Gloria Stingley will then cement the dental crown in place a strong dental adhesive.
