Many people in the Dothan, Alabama, area will turn to a dentist like Dr. Keith Blackmon to address unappealing teeth or an unattractive smile. The years of experience and professional training offered by everyone at Family Dental Care of Dothan can quickly assess the nature of the cosmetic imperfection to present you with an effective plan for improving the appearance of your teeth.

This might call for enhancing the faces of your teeth with dental veneers, or replacing the enamel layer of a single unappealing tooth with a porcelain dental crown. The special material used in this type of dental restoration can mimic the natural appearance of white tooth enamel.

This treatment involves Dr. Keith Blackmon numbing the affected tooth before removing the its enamel layer. The underlying dentin will serve as abutment capable of anchoring the porcelain dental crown.

A detailed impression will be created of the abutment and the neighboring teeth, as well as the related teeth in your bite pattern. It will be sent to a dental lab too guide dental technicians as they create the dental crown. If Dr. Keith Blackmon thinks it necessary, he might also have the porcelain fused to a special metal core.

A staff will call you to schedule a second appointment when the porcelain dental crown is ready. It will then be cemented onto the abutment to complete the dental restoration process.
