Understanding Your Cosmetic Restoration Options

Here at Hansen Dental Care we understand how a winning smile can help put you in command in a social setting. Our highly trained team of dental professionals can assess the imperfections in your smile and help you understand your cosmetic dentistry options for the winning smile you’ve always wanted.

If you have multiple teeth with chips or old fillings that have become visible, we might recommend cosmetically restoring your smile by installing porcelain dental veneers. Each veneer will be custom crafted in our professional dental lab to match a tooth in your smile.

Should one of your teeth lack sufficient enamel to mount a dental veneer, we might recommend restoring that tooth with a porcelain crown.

The process starts with your dentist using a drill to remove the tooth’s enamel layer. This forms an abutment out of the core structures of the tooth. Later this abutment will serve as the anchor for your permanent crown.

Your dentist will then create a detailed impression of the abutment and all other relevant teeth. A temporary crown is placed over the abutment and the impression is sent off to a dental lab where your crown will be made.

We will call you back in when your permanent crown is ready. During this appointment, your dentist will remove the temporary crown and cement your permanent crown in place.

If you are interested in exploring the cosmetic dentistry options to give you a winning smile, you should call Hansen Dental Care’s office in Pasadena, California at 626-793-2273 to schedule an appointment.
