Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley in Marietta, Georgia provide a number of solutions when it comes to repairing and restoring damaged teeth. At 32 Dental, we offer a wide range of cosmetic treatments, which include:
When patients want to address teeth that are broken due to trauma, one of the most commonly suggested restorations is dental crowns.
Dental crowns are porcelain restorations made to cover natural tooth structure. They are also known as “caps,” and they are meant to cover all sides of a tooth. These caps are extremely strong and are made to withstand natural biting and chewing forces. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley can bond these restorations over the teeth to offer extra protection.
Dental crowns cover broken teeth while also offering more strength, which is perfect for teeth that may be weak due to the trauma. Dental crowns are fabricated to match the color and shape of the other teeth within the smile so they look natural and blend in without appearing fake.
To make dental crowns, Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley prepare the natural tooth by removing a portion of the tooth enamel. This is done to ensure a tight fit and eliminate the possibility of the new restoration adding unwanted bulk to the smile. Once the tooth has been prepared, impressions are made. These molds are sent to a ceramist to fabricate the final crown. After approximately one to two weeks, patients will come back to the dental office for the placement of their new restoration and enjoy the benefits of dental crowns within the smile.
Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley of 32 Dental are committed to the health and wellness of their patients’ smiles. Using dental crowns, patients can cover imperfections and restore natural teeth that have been damaged or broken. 32 Dental also offers a wide range of cosmetic treatments for other concerns such as permanent staining, unusually shaped teeth, and even gaps caused by shifting natural teeth within the arch.
