Dental Restoration to Give You More Reasons to Smile
One of the most common dental health problems people have is dental decay. And if left untreated, dental decay can start to affect your general health. Having a dentist you can trust to find and repair problems due to dental decay is vital to maintaining good health – and we are the dentist you need.
After a thorough examination, our staff will recommend the most appropriate treatment to restore your smile.
Cavities are usually caused by bacteria dissolving the protective enamel of your tooth. A dentist will usually remove any excess decay, clean the area and fill in the hole with either a metallic or plastic compound.
Crowns completely encapsulate the tooth and are usually made of gold, porcelain fused to metal, pure white porcelain and zirconia.
A dental inlay is usually used when a very long lasting restoration is desired. The dentist makes a custom inlay that will fit into the spaces in between the cusps of your tooth. Typically an inlay requires two visits to the dentist, but they are very durable once inserted.
Onlays are similar to inlays, except that they are custom-made to fit over one or more cusps. For this reason, they are often referred to as “partial crowns”.
If the tooth is beyond restoration, your dentist may recommend removing it and inserting a bridge. A bridge is made by preparing the teeth on either side of the missing tooth as crowns, which will hold the replacement tooth in place.
