A misshapen tooth, or one that suffers from significantly discolored tooth enamel can have a striking influence on the appearance of your smile. This can cause you to feel self-conscious in certain social situations.
In a situation like this you should consider scheduling an appointment with a dentist like Dr. Mahesh Solanki. After assessing the nature and severity of the problem, he can help you understand the best option for improving the appearance of your unattractive tooth.
In many cases like this he will recommend restoring the tooth with a porcelain-ceramic dental crown. The special material can be shaded to mimic naturally white tooth enamel.
The treatment process starts with him removing the natural tooth enamel. This leaves behind the dentin core of the tooth which will serve as an abutment capable of anchoring the porcelain dental crown.
A member of staff will call you to schedule the second appointment when the porcelain dental crown is ready. It will be cemented in place with a strong dental adhesive.
If you live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and one of your teeth needs cosmetic restoration, you should call 215-551-9151 to set up a consultation a Whitman Dental Center.
