What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns are restorations designed to repair teeth that have been damaged due to disease, decay, or injury. The dental crown is crafted to completely replace the outside surface of your tooth and protect the inner, more delicate tissue. We place dental crowns by first removing any decay and cleaning the damaged area. We then prepare the tooth and bond the crown permanently in place. The crown completely covers the natural tooth and restores the tooth’s integrity. Our crowns are designed to be strong, long-lasting, and cosmetically compatible with your appearance.
What is a fixed dental bridges?
A fixed dental bridges is designed to replace one or a few missing teeth. The bridge is made by cementing three or more crowns together. The end crowns are then bonded to the teeth surrounding the gap left by the natural tooth. This positions the middle crown(s) to fill the gap. This tooth replacement option is time-tested and used by many of our patients. A fixed bridge, however, does not offer the same sort of stability and longevity offered by an implant solution.
Do you offer implant-supported bridges as well?
We do! In addition to the fixed dental bridge, you may also consider an implant-supported bridge. This type of dental bridge does not use the surrounding healthy teeth for support — this dental bridge is supported by dental implants placed directly into your gum and fused to your jawbone. This offers the greatest amount of strength and security possible.
How do inlays and onlays work?
Inlays and onlays are restorations used when the damage is not severe enough to require a dental crown. Inlays are used to repair damage to the biting surface of the tooth, while onlays fix problems on the sides, cusps, and biting surface. If you have damage that is too extensive for a tooth filling but does not require a full dental crown, one of these options may be right for you.
How can these restorations improve the functionality of my mouth?
By restoring the integrity of your teeth (or getting replacements), you will be improving your mouth’s overall functionality. A damaged or missing tooth may lead to pain or difficulty chewing. By repairing these problems, you will be able to enjoy a meal without worrying about your dental health.
