A Smile You Can Count On
If you have damaged or missing teeth, you know how frustrating it can be to not be able to rely on your smile to do its job! You may even experience pain or discomfort when trying to eat. If you simply can’t get the job done sometimes, it is time to ask for help! Our dental team can help you get the high-quality restorations you need for your smile to look great and function properly.
Crowns and bridges allow us to maybe restore a patient who had a really big old silver filling and then cracked it in two. We're able to restore that tooth back to full function so that they're able to chew on that tooth. A crown can also provide the service of supporting a tooth better. If you've had a root canal on a tooth, it's going to help support that root canal tooth better so that you can eat on that tooth again. Then crowns also allow patients to, maybe if you've been a clencher and grinder, we're going to build the tooth back up with the crown so that we can restore your smile again where you've ground down the enamel.
Bridges are excellent options for us to replace teeth that maybe you've been missing for years or maybe we just had to take out a tooth, and it's an excellent option for us to replace that tooth so that you never have to be without a tooth again because having your posterior teeth to support your front teeth is really important, not only for function but for aesthetics, as well.
A dental crown is a restoration designed to repair damaged teeth. Often made of zirconia, our crowns are strong, reliable, and blend right in with your natural smile. They can repair both the functionality and appearance of your damaged tooth. We craft each crown to cover the compromised tooth completely so that it can repair issues like decay, a broken tooth, or any other type of substantial damage.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are restorations that can be used when the damage is not extensive enough to require a crown. Inlays are used to repair decay or wear and tear on the biting surface of the tooth. Onlays are used to fixed small areas of damage or decay on any surface of the tooth, including the biting surface, cusps, and sides, but it does not cover the entire thing like a crown does. Inlays and onlays are wonderful for situations where a crown simply isn’t necessary.
A fixed bridge is a restoration made of three or more crowns that are used to replace one missing tooth. The end crowns are attached to the surrounding healthy teeth, while the middle one replaces the missing tooth. This is a reliable and affordable tooth replacement option for many.
Want the most reliable, long-lasting bridge possible? Consider an implant-supported bridge. Instead of being supported by the surrounding natural teeth, the bridge is supported by dental implants that are anchored into the jaw. This is a great way to make sure you are getting the security you want.
