A single tooth that has been affected by a physical defect like a chip, fracture, or noticeable dental filling can leave you with an unattractive smile. Rather than suffering from a diminished sense of self-image, or guarding some of your facial expressions, you should schedule an appointment with the dental specialists at Associates in Dentistry.

In many of these cases, the most effective treatment method for restoring the tooth’s cosmetic appearance and physical function is to replace the enamel layer with a porcelain dental crown. The special dental grade porcelain material can be shaded to match the other teeth in your smile to mimic bright white tooth enamel.

Dr. Alexander Zubkov will first need to develop an abutment capable of anchoring the dental crown. This is done by removing the tooth’s enamel layer. The small pillar of dentin left behind should have the sufficient strength to anchor the dental crown for many years.

A detailed impression will then be created of the area which will be sent to a dental lab, where the porcelain dental crown will be created. When it’s ready the dental crown will be installed with a strong dental adhesive.

If you are in the Enfield, Connecticut, area and you have a tooth in need of cosmetic restoration, you should call 860-272-4332 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Alexander Zubkov.
