We Offer Different Types of Cosmetic Restoration Procedures
There is no one procedure fits all when it comes to cosmetic restoration. In fact, there are several types of procedures and the one you need may be different than someone else. Each one of the procedures accomplishes something different and when you come in for a free consultation, you will learn more about the recommended procedure for you and your situation.
Below, we will go over some of the different procedures we offer both alone or as part of a restoration treatment plan. Let’s take a look now.
One of the commonly chosen cosmetic restorations is dental crowns. They are used in many situations and they can cover up your tooth or teeth. Many people have heard them referred to as caps. Crowns are used for protection and cosmetic reasons. This means that you can receive a crown without necessarily needing a dental procedure done. For example, you can receive a crown because you want to whiten a tooth and decay does not have to be present.
When you receive a crown, it will sit on the gum line and does not extend below it. The crown does cover the entire tooth and once the crown is created it will be cemented into place. You will likely receive a temporary crown while you wait for the permanent crown to arrive.
Dental crowns are tooth colored, but they also come in gold and silver. Since they are used for many reasons, the reason you have one may be different than someone else. Some of the common reasons why a patient may need a dental crown include:
- Supports a tooth that is decayed
- Protected a broken or fractured tooth
- Covers up stains or discolored teeth
- Improves the look and shape of your tooth
When you do choose to have a cosmetic crown placed on your tooth, you can often choose the material, which includes metal, porcelain, resin, porcelain fused to metal, and ceramic. When you come in for a consultation, our dentists will go over your options with you.
Another common option is dental veneers. This restorative option is most preferred by patients and dentists alike. If you are unhappy with one or more of your teeth, our Thornton dentists will talk to you about veneers and your options.
Veneers are made from thin porcelain shells that are placed on top of the teeth and cemented into place. Many patients do rely on this cosmetic option because they hide flaws on the front teeth. Your front teeth are the first thing that people notice about you when you talk and smile, so it only makes sense to use veneers here. It is important to note that veneers cannot be used on the back teeth and crowns typically protect and cosmetically repair the rear teeth.
The process for veneers involves determining how many veneers you actually need and where they will be placed. Once ready, the enamel from your teeth will be removed to help the veneers adhere to your tooth. The amount of enamel that needs to be removed will depend on the thickness of your actual tooth.
The process of removing enamel from the actual tooth is painless and quick. If you would like to know more about veneers, do not hesitate to call our office.
Some of the dental issues that veneers can help with include:
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Broken, fractured, or chipped teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Misaligned or uneven teeth
Veneers are often chosen by patients because they can be color-matched to the tooth and they are shaped to your exact tooth, so they look as natural as possible. Veneers are resistant to stains, which is a reason many patients like them too.
Your Consultation Can Happen Today
When you come into Thornton Town Center Family Dental, you will receive a consultation with one of our dentists who will talk to you about your cosmetic restoration options. You will be able to discuss whether or not you are a candidate for veneers, crowns, or another procedure.
Before any procedure starts, you will have x-rays taken and an oral exam performed to address any issues that may be present. Before you can receive veneers or crowns, all dental decay and gum disease must be eradicated.
Our dentists will sit down with you and explain the entire procedure, what their recommendations are, and what you can expect when you come into our Thornton office for treatment. You will have a chance to ask questions too.
