Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. If one or two teeth in your smile are afflicted with cosmetic imperfections, it can hamper your self-confidence and even impact your social life. In some situations like this, Drs. Chamberland, Barnes, and White might recommend cosmetically enhancing your smile with dental veneers. However, if it’s only one or two teeth that need improvement, they might recommend a porcelain dental crown.
At your first appointment, our dentists will use a drill to remove the entire tooth enamel layer. Then, they will create an impression of the abutment and surrounding teeth. This will be sent to a dental lab where the porcelain crown will be custom made. A temporary crown will be secured onto the abutment to protect it while the dental lab technician does their work.
Drs. Chamberland, Barnes, and White will call you back for the second appointment when your porcelain crown is ready. The temporary crown will be carefully removed and your new crown will be cemented into place.
