If you have a tooth that has been marred by chips, stains or visible fillings, you might want to talk to our James D. Schuette. DDS. team about having the tooth restored with a dental crown. A dental crown in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, effectively restores the full function and appearance of the tooth by replacing the enamel layer.
For Dr. James D. Schuette to completely restore a tooth with a crown, you will need to schedule two separate appointments. Your dentist will begin the treatment by using a dental drill to remove the majority of the enamel layer of the tooth, which will create an abutment. At the end of the appointment, your dentist will take an impression of the abutment as well as the corresponding teeth. The impression will be sent to the dental lab and will serve as a guide for the technicians while they produce your new permanent crown.
We will call you and have you schedule the second appointment after the dental lab has completed your crown. During this appointment, the temporary crown will be carefully removed and your new permanent crown will be cemented in place.
If you have a tooth that has been marred by chips, stains or other imperfections and you would like to explore your restoration options, you should call James D. Schuette. DDS. at 816-554-7656 to set up an appointment.
