If you have damaged your tooth, you need a dental restoration and quickly. It is fairly common for people to crack their tooth by biting down on something hard or having an accident while playing sports, etc. Many people think that they can simply live with the discomfort or that the crack really isn't bad…
Schedule a Dental Restoration and Save Your Tooth
Many people lose hope when they realize their tooth is facing decay, but our dental restorations can save your tooth. When you have a cavity or another form of damage, it is imperative that you get treatment immediately. Having part of your natural tooth intact is a huge benefit when it comes to preventing further oral damage. We can save your tooth and give you a brighter future by ensuring that you can continue to eat like normal and speak clearly. The two forms of restoration we implement are direct and indirect. Both dental restoration practices focus on preserving your natural tooth as much as possible and giving you an attractive, natural appearance.
Types of dental restorations
Direct dental restorations
We use a direct restoration when it will be easy to fix the cavity without complications. There are different types of fillings for direct dental restorations. A few of the affordable and durable options include composite resin, a popular tooth-colored, lasting option; glass ionomers, also tooth-colored, but mainly for low weight-bearing areas; cast gold, an aesthetically-pleasing alternative to silver fillings and extremely long-lasting; silver amalgam, also long lasting but much less expensive; or ceramic, tooth-colored, resilient, but a little more pricey than some options. The fillings we offer all have adequate levels of durability and are very resilient to discoloration and erosion. This will prevent further damage to the tooth.
Indirect dental restorations
The second type of dental restorations we offer is an indirect dental restoration. Indirect restoration is used for slightly more complex issues in teeth. If the patient has a large cavity, a crack in a tooth, extensive damage, or a big chip or break, we can provide customized solutions. The inlays, onlays, and crowns create attractive, lasting repairs that enable the patient to preserve the remainder of the tooth. Inlays are the least invasive, providing coverage similar to that of fillings, but slightly more in depth.
Onlays are much like inlays, but they cover one or more cusps of the tooth. The cusps of the tooth are the jagged points on the tooth. Crowns cover the entirety of the tooth, providing extra brawn for the tooth. These all preserve the natural tooth. Having the natural tooth still intact gives the mouth extra strength and the upper hand on future oral health complications. If your restoration needs are small or great, our dental restoration services can save your tooth with ease, preventing further oral infections. Our solutions are incredibly affordable, and they work. You will not face any discomfort, and you will be pleased with your appealing, fortified results. Dental restorations can improve your confidence, happiness, and overall health.
We want to help you retain as many of your original teeth as possible. This will save people a lifetime of hassle and help prevent them from having to get false teeth, dentures, implants, and dental bridges. These are expensive procedures that people can avoid by receiving a preventative dental restoration in the present. We create a comfortable environment and deliver unbelievably enduring and realistic-looking solutions for your dental restoration needs.
