Patients in Charleston, SC ask, “What does a tooth crown look like?”
Some patients are told by Dr. Andrew Greenberg in Charleston, SC that they may benefit from the placement of a dental crown. Any type of restoration used in the mouth can cause concerns about whether it will look natural. At Mouth Carolina Dentistry, PA, we focus on not only effective restorations but aesthetic ones as well. When patients ask, “What does a tooth crown look like?” Dr. Andrew Greenberg is completely open and honest with his patients and educates them on what they can expect.
Dental crowns are incredibly natural looking. This is because at Mouth Carolina Dentistry, PA, we focus on ensuring everything we do to the smile is aesthetic in nature. We don’t want dental restorations to stand out, so we use the quality materials and some of the top dental laboratories, to make sure our restorations look great.
Dental crowns are like “caps” that are made to cover all surfaces of a tooth. These caps are bonded over the entire tooth so they must look natural to avoid standing out as “dental work.” Dental crowns are typically used on weak or broken teeth to give them an extra layer of protection and strength.
To make dental crowns, and to ensure they fit properly, Dr. Andrew Greenberg will prepare the natural tooth by filing it down. Then, he takes impressions, which are sent out to a laboratory for fabrication. He gives the ceramist instructions on the shape, size, and color to integrate it into the rest of the smile, and then placement is done during a follow-up appointment a week or two later.
Dr. Andrew Greenberg and the team of Mouth Carolina Dentistry, PA want patients to understand that everything performed within their smile will match their existing teeth. We believe aesthetics are a big part of the confidence patients experience when they restore their smiles. If you are ready to make changes to the way you look so you can laugh, talk, and share your beautiful smile with others without hesitation, contact our team today. We welcome patients in and around the West Ashley area and surrounding communities.Back to Dental Crowns Page
