Types of Tooth Colored Restorations
There are a number of different tooth colored restoration procedures that can be performed and each of these solutions will work differently to provide you with the results you are after. For instance, if you are missing any teeth in your mouth, you would want to receive a procedure tailored to adding more teeth instead of a procedure that focuses on whitening your teeth.
When you come into our Brentwood, CA office, you will receive a FREE consultation and Dr. Luu will discuss your offers with you. You will quickly learn about the best treatments for you. Before you choose any options, it is important that you look over them and ask questions whenever possible. Many of our common tooth colored restorations will be explained below.
/ Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a great choice for your teeth and they are designed specifically for your teeth. Veneers are made from a strong porcelain that is shaped in the form of a thin shell. Your tooth will then be shaped by Dr. Luu. The shaping process includes removing some enamel from your tooth to ensure that it is able to receive the veneer.
Many patients like the idea of this option because the veneers are matched to your current teeth color, so they blend in perfectly. These restorations are used to cover up flaws that may occur on your teeth including staining and chips. If you need any type of corrections to your teeth, you may need a crown.
Some of the most common reasons to receive a veneer include:
• Worn down teeth
• Broken, chipped, and fractured teeth
• Misaligned or uneven teeth
• Discolored and stained teeth
The veneer procedure is done in two visits and it is not painful at all. Dr. Luu will talk to you about what to expect when you are here and discuss any available options.
/ Dental Crowns
One of the most popular tooth colored restorations is dental crowns. Crowns are able to protect your teeth, adjust them, and restore them. You will be able to cover up stained, broken, and damaged teeth easily. Dental crowns are very versatile and they are used extremely often within the dental field.
A dental crown goes over the tooth completely, but stops at the gum line. The crown will keep your tooth safe if there is anything wrong with it such as it has been broken before. Before you receive a crown, you will receive a temporary crown that is placed in your mouth until the permanent crown arrives.
Crowns are tooth colored and they also come in other metal colored options too. You can choose a tooth colored option to ensure that no one sees that you have a crown. When you come into our Brentwood office, we will match your tooth color and then create a crown in the same color.
Dental crowns can be used for a number of different reasons and your reason for needing one may be different than other patients. Some of the reasons why you may need a crown include:
• Support a decayed tooth
• Cover up a stained tooth
• Protect a cracked or broken tooth
• Improve the look or the shape of your tooth
Tooth colored crowns are a great way to avoid an extraction and save your tooth. If you would like to discuss your options for dental crowns, contact Dr. Luu at Fairview Dental today.
