Your teeth are intended to be hard enough to handle the daily rigors of biting, chewing, and grinding. However, there are other activities that can chip or fracture a tooth. When this happens the damage to the tooth enamel can vary in severity and the necessary treatment required to restore the tooth’s integrity.
If the tooth cannot repair the tooth with a basic dental filling, a dental crown may be recommended.
This starts with removing the tooth’s enamel layer with a dental hand piece. The remaining dentin layer, which is known as an abutment, will eventually serve to anchor the dental crown in place.
Dr. Bertoglio will create a detailed impression of the area. This impression will help create your new crown perfect for your unique smile.
If you have recently fractured a tooth, and you live in the Hoffman Estates, IL, area, you should call 847-893-9099 to seek treatment at The Toothery.
