A white and winning smile plays to your favor in many of life’s social settings. One or more unappealing teeth in your smile can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. To address an issue like this, your dentist, Dr. Matilde Castellini, often recommends restoring the appearance of these teeth with porcelain dental crowns.

The process of placing a dental crown in Orlando, Florida, starts with your dentist using a drill to remove the entire enamel layer of each unappealing tooth. This leaves behind a post-like abutment that encases the pulp and root of the teeth.

A detailed impression will be made of every abutment as well as any corresponding teeth in your bite. The impressions will then be sent to a professional dental lab. This will serve as a guide while the technicians custom crafts your porcelain crowns. At the end of the appointment, your dentist will secure a hard, plastic, temporary crown over the abutment to keep it safe.

When your new crown is ready, we will call you back in to have the temporary crown removed and to have the porcelain crown cemented into place.   

If you have one or more unappealing teeth in your smile, you should call MedPlex Dental at 407-351-2245 to ask about restoring their appearance with porcelain dental crowns.
