A single tooth with discolored tooth enamel, a noticeable dental fracture or some other overt cosmetic imperfection can leave you feeling self-conscious when you smile. Rather than hide the appearance of your teeth, you should consider setting up an appointment with our dentist, Dr. William D. Ledford.

After examining and X-raying the tooth to assess its general health, our dentist will help you understand your treatment options. Many patients struggling to deal with a single unappealing tooth opt to have it cosmetically restored with a porcelain dental crown.

Dental crowns typically require two separate appointments to essentially replace the affected tooth enamel layer with a special type of dental grade porcelain. You can rest assured that the porcelain used for your crown mimics the appearance of naturally white tooth enamel and can be shaded to match the adjacent teeth.

Once your dental crown has been created in a state-of-the-art dental lab, Dr. William D. Ledford will then secure it onto the abutment created from the natural core structures of the tooth. This will complete the cosmetic restoration and improve the tooth’s overall appearance as well as its essential function.

If you are in the Kansas City, Missouri, area and have an unappealing tooth that appears when you smile, you should call 816-569-9787 to explore the treatment options available at Blue Stream Dental .
