Types of Restorations
Our specialists know how to provide you with a smile that will last for many years to come. If you have missing or chipped teeth, restorative dentistry may be the best option for you!
Two common dental restorations are:
-Replacement teeth (i.ee. crowns)
-More than one visit to complete restoration
-Used to fill a cavity
-Requires one visit
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are the best means of preventing tooth decay from the inside of your teeth. An inlay fills the cavity of the tooth that has decay. Onlays only treat tooth decay on the top layer of your teeth. There are plenty of things
The initial visit is where we will take an impression of your teeth. It will be molded and sent to a lab that will create your inlay/onlay. Once your permanent inlay/onlay arrives, they will be bonded to your teeth. A high-quality resin will be applied to bond it to your teeth and safeguard against tooth decay.
Dental crowns are a great fix to chipped or cracked teeth! Crowns are a “cap” that covers discolored or broken teeth and tooth that has decay.
You may need crowns if you experience the following:
- Restores a weak tooth
- Supports broken teeth
- Visually beautiful smile
- Aids in dental bridge placement
We will examine your mouth and teeth to determine if dental crowns are right for you. Our specialists will ensure where dental crowns can be placed and create a customized treatment plan.
During the first appointment, you will be provided local anesthesia to alleviate pain. An impression of your teeth will be taken and sent to a lab to fabricate the crowns. While you await permanent crowns, you will be provided with temporary crowns in the meantime. When your final crowns arrive, your mouth will be numbed to attach the crown atop your natural tooth. It will be cemented into place with a low-density light to achieve a fully-functioning smile again!
