When it comes to dental crowns, we are proud to offer the best that modern dentistry has to offer. At Smile Studio we deliver high-quality dental restorations. If your tooth has suffered from severe decay or extensive damage, a dental crown may be chosen to restore the strength and integrity of the tooth. A crown encases all visible surfaces of the tooth and is made of durable, natural-looking porcelain material.
A crown is a proven means of restoring a tooth that has suffered from moderate to severe damage. While a dental filling or bonding can repair a minor area of concern, a dental crown is needed for more extensive damage. This may be due to severe decay or a dental injury. It is also common for a crown to be used following root canal therapy on an infected tooth. Regardless of what has caused your tooth to be cracked, broken or damaged, you can trust Smile Studio Dental to restore it properly. We ensure your dental crown produces lasting results with optimal comfort and aesthetics.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
If you have a molar (or rear tooth) that cannot be successfully repaired with a dental filling but still has enough healthy structure to avoid a dental crown, a dental inlay or onlay may be recommended. These are excellent restorative solutions to prolong the life of a tooth and prevent the need for further dental treatment in the future. An inlay is much like a dental filling in that it fits inside the cusp of the tooth. A dental onlay provides additional coverage and extends over the cusps of the affected tooth. When placing inlays and onlays, we always use dedicated techniques to preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible.
Crowns and bridges are used to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged, or to take the place of missing teeth. A crown, also referred to as a cap, is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only strengthens a tooth, but it can dramatically improve a tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment. Crowns may be used to:
- Replace a large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
- Restore a fractured tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Cover a dental implant
- Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
