A tooth suffering from a physical defect or cosmetic imperfection that appears in your smile can often leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. This can be an even more significant factor if your career involves a lot of face to face interaction.

If you have an unappealing tooth in your smile, you might want to schedule an appointment at Associates in Dentistry to explore your treatment options. One possible option might be to cosmetically restore the tooth with a porcelain dental crown.

This treatment method starts with Dr. Alexander Zubkov numbing the affected tooth before removing its enamel layer. The remaining dentin beneath will serve as abutment capable of anchoring the porcelain dental crown.

A detailed impression will then be prepared of the abutment and the related teeth in the area. It will be sent to a dental lab where dental technicians will create the dental crown from a special dental grade porcelain material. If Dr. Alexander Zubkov deems it necessary he might also have the porcelain fused to a special metalcore.

A member of Associates in Dentistry’s staff will call you to schedule a second appointment when your porcelain dental crown has been completed. It will then be cemented onto the abutment to complete the dental restoration process.  

If you are in the Enfield, Connecticut, area and you have an unattractive tooth in your smile, you should call 860-272-4332 to schedule an examination at Associates in Dentistry.
