If you have a problem with your smile that is serious enough to require a dental crown, you can feel unsure about the impact treatment will have on your appearance and oral health. Restorative treatment addresses permanent problems with our teeth, meaning they respond to issues that cause irreversible harm. With a custom dental crown, our Mansfield, TX dentist’s office can address a problem that is too serious even for care with a filling. You may be especially worried to receive a restoration for a front tooth, but you can be relieved to know that in addition to providing valuable bite support, your crown can imitate your healthy enamel!
Worried That Restorative Treatment Will Change Your Smile?
If you have a cavity or dental injury that requires treatment, you may worry that your procedure will negatively affect your appearance even as it restores your oral health. This can be especially concerning if you have work done on a tooth that is more visible when you smile and speak. Our practice can recommend that you have a custom crown placed that matches your healthy enamel. By making this choice, we can help you regain confidence in your oral health as well as your appearance.
Receiving Your Custom Dental Crown
Your custom restoration will be carefully made to fit over your tooth. At an initial appointment, we will actually take careful measurements to make sure your crown is the right shape and size, and we will provide preliminary work to make sure that there is room for it when placed. At a follow-up visit, your treatment will end with the placement of your restoration. The procedure ends with you enjoying lasting support, as your treatment can ensure that your tooth is safe, and that your bite function is preserved, for many years!
Placing The Right Kind Of Restoration To Support Your Dental Health
Just as we take care to determine if you need a dental filling or dental crown, we will look carefully to determine what kind of dental crown you might require. For one of your back teeth, which absorb more bite pressure, we can recommend that we use a porcelain-fused-to-metal restoration for support. While this may be less lifelike than a porcelain crown, it can provide cosmetic support in a harder to see area, and it can provide more strength.
