How do you protect damaged teeth or restore beauty to your smile? Dental crowns, inlays and onlays are general dentistry options to protect your teeth while keeping your smile beautiful. At Buford Family Dental, we offer natural-appearing dental crowns and other protective treatments to add strength and durability to your teeth while keeping your smile looking healthy and natural.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
When you have large fillings, a root canal or extensive damage to a tooth, it needs protection. Dental crowns are used to protect damaged teeth with a complete covering for the tooth. Crowns or caps are designed to fit over your teeth and are formed to fit your smile. Porcelain or white dental crowns look, function and feel like your natural tooth, but keep it protected against the pressure of chewing and other normal functions.
Dental crowns are used in tooth repairs and with dental bridges to restore missing teeth. They can also be used for cosmetic purposes. Dental crowns can hide discolored teeth or dental flaws, improving the beauty of your smile and offering durable protection for the teeth underneath. Unlike porcelain veneers, they cover the entire tooth to completely hide it and add durable protection.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Another option for protecting damaged teeth are porcelain inlays and onlays. These protective coverings are created in a dental lab to match the form of your teeth, then bonded into place. Inlays and onlays offer support and protection to the tooth structure, putting less stress on the tooth than large fillings. They can also be color-matched to your teeth to blend perfectly with your smile.
