Crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. Crowns are used to restore both anterior and posterior teeth that have been broken or are at high risk of doing so due to over-sized old fillings, fractures, decay or after the tooth has a root canal. There are a variety of materials used to construct these; they may be all porcelain, or a combination of porcelain and metal.
An inlay/onlay restoration is a custom made filling made of composite material or tooth-colored porcelain. It is used to replace your old, fractured fillings or to fix broken, fractured or decayed teeth.
Bridges are fixed, or non-removable prosthesis constructed to fill in the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They are usually made of porcelain fused to metal or as full porcelain and resin-based. They are great solution to fill space of missing teeth, restore chewing and speaking ability, maintain shape of your face and restore your smile.
Veneers are semi-translucent porcelain facings or “shells” that are custom made to fit precisely over the front of your existing natural teeth. They are permanently bonded in place by a special resin to your teeth to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile. They are great to cover up misshaped, crooked, discolored or stained teeth.
Bonding is an alternative to the Veneers. Unlike Veneers during bonding the facings are made out of plastic composite resin, rather than porcelain. This tooth-colored material that looks like the enamel of your teeth is molded and shaped, and then hardened and polished. Bonding is used to close teeth gaps or to improve the color of the teeth.
Dentures can come as a complete denture or a partial. Both are an affordable alternative to implants. The teeth are prefabricated in acrylic which can be customized in many sizes, shades, and shapes.
An implant is an artificial tooth “root” that replaces a missing tooth. It looks like a screw and is made of titanium. Implants are used to replace one or several missing teeth. There are surgically placed in the jawbone to create the basis on which the artificial crown will attached to. Implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years. The teeth attached to implants have a very natural look that will enhance or restore your smile.
Root canal is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. All teeth have between one and four root canals. In order to save the tooth, the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function. Having a root canal done on a tooth is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that otherwise would die and have to be removed.
When restoration procedures such as root canal therapy, crowns, or fillings are not enough to save a tooth, it may need to be extracted. Today this procedure is far less painful than ever before, thanks to powerful anesthetics and sedatives. In many cases, a patient who has tooth pulled experiences little or no discomfort.
