Tooth Restoration

Dark and unattractive, old crowns can make you feel self-conscious when you smile. Traditional metallic crowns can leave teeth and gum lines discolored.

Thanks to the development of stronger porcelain materials and advancements in technology, Dr. Vecchitto works closely with York Dental Laboratory to create beautiful, tooth-colored crowns. Dr. Vecchitto specializes in making natural looking custom crowns for patients.

 

Ceramic crowns are placed on teeth that require restoration as a result of decay or trauma. Crowns are often used to replace old restorations made of metal and mercury.

When preparing a tooth for a crown, Dr. Vecchitto sculpts the top of the tooth. Once the tooth’s surface is prepared Dr. Vecchitto makes an impression of the toot. York Dental Laboratory then creates a custom crown, inlay or onlay to fit the tooth precisely.

Crowns, inlays and onlays blend with the natural color of teeth and eliminate the discoloration that the metallic solutions of yesterday created.
