A smile can light up a room. However, if you are experiencing the appearance of teeth concerns such as a chip, stain, or crooked teeth, it can decrease the quality and want for you to smile. Luckily, there is a reliable solution for achieving a smile as radiant as you are with ceramic porcelain crowns.
What is a Ceramic Crown?
Your whiter, more brilliant smile is no longer just a dream! Ceramic crowns are a form of conservative cosmetic dentistry that make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have chipped teeth, crooked teeth, spaces between your teeth, or dull, stained teeth, crowns may be the perfect solution for you. A ceramic crown is a tooth shaped “cap” that is placed over the damaged or crooked tooth to restore improved size, shape, strength, and appearance.
How Does it Work?
Treatments are personalized to correct your specific needs. Following a consultation, your personalized treatment route is established. During your actual treatment, your gums may be numbed to ensure optimal comfort. Next, space is created for the crown by filing down the sides and bottom of the tooth receiving the crown. In some cases, if the tooth is worn down due to decay, it may need to be built up in order to properly support the crown.
After reshaping the tooth, an impression is taken to achieve the correct shape for your crown to best fit you. The specific shade of the crown is also determined to match your surrounding teeth. The impression and shade are then sent to a manufacturer and a temporary crown is put in place.
Once the crown is returned, an additional visit is scheduled to place the permanent crown. During treatment the area is numbed. Then, a method by Dr. LoSasso skillfully bonds and shapes the thin films of porcelain to your teeth creating a straight, brilliant smile.
Following treatment, the results can be instantly noticeable. Ceramic crowns are a fantastic solution for correcting many dental concerns including chipped teeth, decay, discoloration, smaller teeth, and crooked teeth. Results can help you to achieve the radiant smile that best reflects you . With Dr. LoSasso’s many years of experience and knowledge, you can claim the smile you desire.
