A winning smile certainly serves you in most social and business settings. Many people with an imperfect smile will seek out Dr. Tyler Carlson to explore their cosmetic dentistry options.

Porcelain dental veneers are a very popular option for people that want to improve chips and stains on multiple teeth in their smile. At the same time, it’s not unheard of for one or more teeth to have been compromised by past dental work, or simply lack sufficient enamel to securely anchor a dental veneer.

Should this be the case, Dr. Tyler Carlson might recommend restoring all of the tooth enamel on the questionable teeth with a porcelain or porcelain fused to metal crown. Since the porcelain material can be perfectly shaded to match the surrounding veneers, any crown will be indistinguishable from the teeth around it.

Dr. Tyler Carlson will start by using a drill to remove all of the tooth enamel. This leaves behind an abutment later serve as the anchor for your permanent crown. Then he will form a detailed impression of the abutment, and the other teeth intended for dental veneers. A hard plastic temporary crown will then be cemented over the abutment to protect it.

The impression will then be sent to a professional dental lab where your permanent crown is produced alongside the dental veneers.

Dr. Tyler Carlson will call you in for a brief second appointment, when your new crown is ready. The temporary crown is removed and your permanent crown is cemented into place. Then he can go about the standard process of installing your new dental veneers.

If you are interested in exploring your cosmetic dentistry options, you should call Dr. Tyler Carlson’s office in Rock Springs, Wyoming at 307-362-2220 to schedule an appointment.
