Dr. Fuerst uses cosmetic resin (bonding material) as it provides many advantages when fixing or repairing chipped, cracked or decaying teeth. Cosmetic resin also is used by Dr. Fuerst to reduce spaces between teeth and for hiding discoloration or faded areas on the surface of teeth.

Often the best solution for restoring a badly damaged tooth is to prepare a crown for the tooth. A crown is a dental restoration which caps or encircles a prepared tooth's surface. Its purpose is to protect the remaining tooth structure and to restore the original appearance of the tooth.



Earlier, gold had been the most used material for fabricating crowns but today it's being replaced by more aesthetic materials like porcelain. Considering the fact that porcelain is not terribly strong, most crowns made of porcelain must be fitted with an included metal backing. This makes the crowns very strong, but the metal used can show as a metal 'frame' or gray line which does take away from the treated tooth's aesthetics when finished.



Dr. Peter Fuerst, your local cosmetic dentist in Sunrise, FL. is proud to use E.Max porcelain crowns. E.Max is a new crown fabrication system which allows a dentist to make a porcelain crown without the metal under-structure. As a result, there is no visible...
