When you need a tooth restored or repaired, dental crowns are often the general dentistry treatment that is recommended. At Garrisonville Dental, we offer beautiful dental crowns to protect damaged teeth or to restore missing teeth with dental implants or bridgework. We also use porcelain inlays and onlays to repair damaged teeth at our office in Stafford.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
When a tooth is damaged or cracked, it needs protection to keep it structurally sound. Dental crowns are used to cover a damaged tooth and create a protective exterior. Dental crowns can be made from metals, porcelain or a combination of both. Many people prefer porcelain crowns as they can be color-matched to the other teeth for a natural appearance.
Dental crowns are used when a tooth has undergone trauma or extensive dental treatments. Most teeth that need a root canal will also need a dental crown to protect the weakened tooth. At Garrisonville Dental, we also use dental crowns in our restorations, including dental bridges and dental implants.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Porcelain inlays and onlays are used to repair teeth that have a large portion of the tooth removed. Inlays or onlays are similar to fillings, but they are created outside the tooth in a lab and then bonded to the tooth. Large fillings can put too much stress on a tooth. An inlay or onlay can be a better option to repair a tooth that has a large chip or a portion of decay removed.
