Each of your teeth has a unique shape appropriate for its position and function in your mouth. However, sometimes one or two permanent teeth can emerge from the gums with an aberration in the shape of the tooth enamel. These misshapen teeth can leave you with an unappealing smile and a mouth that is increasingly prone to dental fractures and dental attrition.
Here at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas we can often correct a misshapen tooth with a porcelain crown. This will completely replace the original tooth enamel layer with a special type of dental porcelain. The material used for the dental crown can be shaded to mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel.
If other teeth in your smile have minor cosmetic or physical imperfections Prosthodontics of the Carolinas can correct their appearance with dental veneers. These are small porcelain shells made from the same dental porcelain as the dental crowns. They can he slightly altered in shape to enhance the appearance of your smile.
Once the porcelain dental crowns and dental veneers have been cemented in place, they will improve your smile for many years to come.
If you live in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area and you have one or more misshapen teeth, you should call 704-364-3770 to schedule an appointment at the Prosthodontics of the Carolinas clinic.
