Answer Key

  1. True. In order to create them, we remove a small section of tooth structure. We then take detailed impressions, which will be used to design and then create them. Once complete, the patient returns to the dentist so we can place it with a powerful bonding agent. In as little as two visits, we can completely change the smile.
  2. True. In many cases, we choose all-porcelain to create them, as the material is strong, stain-resistant, and offers an appearance that mimics the shade of a natural tooth. For more substantial repair, we my suggest ones that can endure greater bite forces and pressure, we also employ lifelike zirconia and porcelain-fused-to-metal.
  3. True. The crown will cover the entire visible portion of the tooth, allowing us to reshape broken, cracked, or malformed teeth. We also lengthen worn down teeth and close gaps between teeth. Placement allows us to address permanent discoloration and even aid in tooth replacement, securing a dental bridge and restoring single tooth dental implants.
  4. True. When you continue to brush and floss daily as recommended, you help protect the new restoration and allow your crown to potentially last decades. We also suggest having your smile examined and cleaned every six months. If you have any questions about repairing your smile, or if you think a lifelike restoration is right for you, then contact our team today.
