At times teeth need to have a filling because a tooth has been worn down, cracked or even breaks. What you do after discovering you have a cavity will go a long way in saving the tooth and preventing any further damage.
Inlays and onlays are dental alternatives to filling a cavity. They are stronger than a traditional filling, and can also be an alternative to crowns. Furthermore, there are more colors available with inlays and outlays, making it easier to match the exact color of your existing teeth. Inlays bond with the cavity on tip of the tooth. Conversely, onlays extend beyond the tip of the tooth and are generally for larger cavities. Both are available in various materials such as porcelain, gold or a composite and can greatly increase the strength of your tooth.
At the time of your procedure, our doctors will devise an individualized plan specific to your dental goals, which will consist of precautionary measures prior to your appointment, the actual procedure, and the post care treatment.
Crowns and Bridges are considered the most common and highly effective solutions for improving imperfections such as a damaged or a missing tooth. The results allow you to chew food easier and help balance your bite while reducing the ability of your existing teeth to shift and catch food in between them.
Dental Implants are a perfect option for people who have missing teeth, wear uncomfortable dentures, or are not interested in wearing a bridge. An implant is a small titanium post that is placed in your jawbone. The post fuses with the bone to create a solid anchor for restoration such as a crown or bridge. The implant gives you a tooth that looks and functions like your natural teeth.
Dentures and partials can be the most effective solutions for improving the function of your oral health and teeth by bringing back the natural beauty of your smile. Being a removable appliance, dentures and partials allow you the opportunity to eat food easier, ability to speak clearly if your speech has changed due to missing teeth and help support cheeks and lips to prevent sagging in the face.
