A front tooth with a misshapen enamel layer or deep discoloration can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile’s appearance. A similar problem might also be caused by a visibly noticeable dental filling.
If you are unhappy with a tooth’s appearance, you should consider setting up an appointment with a dentist like Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Sese. There are various treatment options available. After assessing the severity of the problem, and the overall health of the tooth they will explain your treatment options.
In many of these cases, our dentists will recommend replacing the tooth’s enamel layer with a porcelain dental crown. The special material can be shaded to mimic naturally white tooth enamel which allows it to perfectly match with the surrounding teeth.
The treatment process starts with numbing the tooth before using professional tools and techniques to remove the enamel layer. The healthy layer dentin left behind will serve as an abutment capable of supporting the porcelain dental crown.
One of our staff members will call you to schedule the second appointment when the porcelain dental crown is ready. It only takes a few minutes to bond the dental crown to the abutment.
If you live in Jersey City, New Jersey, and one of your teeth needs cosmetic restoration, you should call 201-332-4699 to set up a consultation appointment at East Coast Family Dental.
