When a tooth begins to lose its strength due to wear, trauma, or decay, crowns are often used to restore it. After all cavities are removed and the tooth is shaped, a crown is placed directly over the remaining tooth structure. After the fit of the crown is checked, it is permanently cemented onto the tooth. Essentially, the crown becomes your new tooth, at least to the untrained eye.
Types of Crowns
At Chesapeake Smiles, patients can choose from a wide range of materials for their crown, including porcelain, gold, or metal alloy. Most patients opt for porcelain crowns because the material is very similar to enamel, which gives the tooth a natural appearance. In order for a crown to fit perfectly, an impression is taken of your teeth and sent to the lab to have a custom crown especially made to fit you.
Looking for a beautiful esthetic smile? Veneers are your answer!
Veneers have extremely natural appearance and essentially thin porcelain shells that have been customized to fit your teeth.
At Chesapeake Smiles Dental we place veneers over your anterior teeth and cover only the front surfaces.
Once complete, your veneers will remarkably give you that perfect natural smile you’re looking for. Typically, our veneers are resistant to stains; however, you may still need to avoid certain beverages, such as coffee and red wine.
