If you are having problems with your teeth due to chips, stains, old restoration, or physically breaking dental crowns Dallas may be the solution for you. Dental crowns can restore the look and function of a tooth. Tooth bonding is utilized to correct teeth that have become broken and stained.
Dental crowns offer an affordable way to restore your damaged teeth without sacrificing the appearance of your smile. Dr. Marneni specializes in porcelain dental crowns that look natural and fit beautifully. You will have a hard time being able to tell the difference between your original teeth and a dental crown placed by Dr. Marneni.
If it turns out that you need to have a crown rather than a white or porcelain filling, then Dr. Marneni will begin by preparing your tooth for the crown. In order for your crown to be placed, the top portion of your tooth is sculpted so that the porcelain crown can fit over the top of it.
Once the tooth has been prepared for the dental crown, Dr. Marneni will make an impression of the tooth and send it to a dental lab where your custom porcelain crown will be created.
While your porcelain crown is being created, you will be fitted with a temporary crown. When the porcelain crown returns from the dental lab, Dr. Marneni will invite you back to the office where the temporary will be removed and the porcelain crown will be bonded to your tooth.
To bond the crown to your tooth, Dr. Marneni will brush on a bonding agent and then place the porcelain crown over the top of the tooth. Then she will use a special high-intensity light to cure the bonding agent and permanently affix the porcelain crown to the natural structure of your tooth.
A porcelain crown fits over the top of the tooth covering the remaining portion of the natural tooth structure and restoring the look and function of the tooth.
A porcelain crown strengthens the decayed tooth so that you can eat and smile without having to think about the pain of a damaged tooth or the appearance of metal in your mouth.
Unlike metal crowns, porcelain dental crowns match the size, shape, color, and translucency of the rest of your teeth. Many people not only choose porcelain over metal crowns because they match the color and translucency of natural teeth, but they also choose to have their older crowns or fillings replaced with porcelain dental crowns.
Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure performed to correct damage to teeth. Tooth bonding can correct many of the same problems porcelain veneers can correct, but instead of being performed on many teeth, it is usually only performed on one or two.
Tooth bonding can correct:
- Chipped Teeth
- Stained or Discolored Teeth
- Gaps in Teeth
- Broken Teeth
- Disfigured Teeth
- Misshaped Teeth
- Cracked Teeth
A tooth bonding procedure is quick, and unlike porcelain veneers, it can be finished in just one visit. Tooth bonding is an excellent option if you have a couple teeth that need to be repaired or whitened because of permanent staining or discoloring.
Tooth bonding is a composite resin that is placed by Dr. Marneni to perfectly match the color of your teeth. It can also be selected so that it is a whiter color if you have permanent staining.
In order to have tooth bonding Dr. Marneni will evaluate your teeth and make sure tooth bonding is the best restoration for you. She will also inform you about the tooth bonding procedure so that you can have realistic expectations of the results you will have.
If it is determined that tooth bonding is the right cosmetic dentistry option for you, Dr. Marneni will place the tooth bonding so that it matches the appearance of your teeth and apply it in several layers to the natural surface of your teeth.
After the tooth bonding has been sculpted so that it matches the size and shape of the rest of your teeth, it is cured. Tooth bonding is cured with a special high-intensity light that hardens the composite resin material and allows you to function normally with your bonded teeth.
