Physical defects in a tooth can significantly alter the appearance of your smile. This could come in the form of a newly developed cavity, a chip, dental fracture, discolored dental filling, or physical deformation in the tooth enamel.

In a situation like this you should consider contacting Dr. Asad Ahsan to understand the cosmetic dental options available at his dental clinic in McKinney, Texas. In many of these cases he will recommend restoring the tooth enamel layer with a porcelain dental crown.

To do this your dentist will remove the existing tooth enamel layer to create an abutment from the healthy dentin layer within. This will eventually act as an anchor point for the eventual dental crown.

Once this is done he will create an impression the abutment and the corresponding teeth in the area. This information will be sent to a professional dental lab where is a replica of the original tooth enamel will be created from a special porcelain material. Then a temporary crown is secured over the abutment to protect it.

You will need to return to Vital Dental for follow up appointment when your porcelain dental crown is ready. The temporary crown will be removed and we will cement the dental onto the abutment with a strong dental adhesive.

If you live in the McKinney, Texas, area and you have a tooth in need of cosmetic restoration you should call (972) 347-0945 to explore the options available at Vital Dental.
