Your teeth are incredibly strong and can withstand extensive pressure when they are healthy. However, even though your enamel is the strongest substance in your body, it and the structure underneath can be damaged. To protect a damaged tooth, dental crowns, inlays and onlays are a general dentistry treatment that can be used to strengthen the structure and prevent infection or other oral health issues. At Ora Dentistry, we offer beautiful dental crowns and repair options for cracked or damaged teeth.
It is easy to take your teeth for granted. They are strong and resilient, often lasting a lifetime if kept in optimal health. But when the tooth is damaged due to trauma, decay or extensive dental work, your teeth need extra protection to restore them to health. Dr. Dalla and our team of dental professional at Ora Dentistry can help.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
Dental crowns are often the best way to restore cracked or damaged teeth. Crowns or caps are created from metal, ceramics or porcelain to cover the entire tooth. While gold or silver can be used, many people prefer a crown that matches their existing teeth. Porcelain is a beautiful option, creating a new tooth exterior that is durable and aesthetically pleasing. Using advanced imagery and dental techniques, a crown can be created that is identical to your natural tooth. The tooth is then resized to fit the crown over the top, giving you a completely restored tooth.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Not all damaged teeth require a complete dental crown. When just the cusp or top needs a new surface, an onlay can be created to protect the tooth. When large portions of the tooth need to be replaced, an inlay can be created to fit into the tooth to add strength and protection when a filling is not appropriate.
