When a tooth is damaged due to trauma, decay or extensive dental treatments, it may need protection. Once the tooth structure is weakened, it can be at risk for further damage from the pressure used when chewing. Dental crowns, inlays and onlays are cosmetic dental treatments that can restore damaged teeth and offer protection from damage. At Alluvial Dental Center, Dr. Park and our team repair damaged teeth using beautiful restorations that match your teeth and protect your smile.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
When a tooth is severely cracked, broken or damaged, it is imperative to repair and protect the tooth to prevent tooth loss. Dental crowns are the most comprehensive option for protecting and repairing a severely damaged tooth. Crowns or caps cover the entire tooth and create a durable new surface while protecting the live tooth underneath. Dental crowns are used to restore broken or severely cracked teeth. They are also used to protect a tooth that has extensive dental work, such as after a root canal. Dental crowns are also used in creating dental bridges to restore lost teeth. Our team at Alluvial Dental Center offers beautiful white dental crowns that will match your smile while protecting your damaged tooth.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
When only a part of the tooth is damaged, a complete dental crown is not always required. If only a side or the top cusp of the tooth needs protection, porcelain inlays or onlays can be used. These dental restorations are created in a lab from an impression of your tooth. Unlike fillings, the material does not harden in the tooth but is designed in a lab to fit your tooth. Inlays and onlays are bonded into place and can be color-matched to blend perfectly with your natural tooth color.
