When a tooth is badly decayed or significantly damaged, a dental crown may be used to help the tooth regain its strength and integrity. As part of our general dentistry treatments at Three Creek Dentistry, we are proud to offer beautiful custom crowns to patients who need them. While a crown can sometimes be used cosmetically, most patients benefit from this type of restoration when they have notable tooth damage or even missing teeth. A crown can be secured to a dental implant or to attach a dental bridge on either side. To learn more about the versatility of dental crowns and how one may improve your smile, please schedule a consultation with us.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
A crown serves as a dental “cap” for a damaged tooth. It can be made of natural-looking porcelain or ceramic and encases all visible surfaces of the tooth. After a crown is placed, you should be able to care for and use your tooth just like normal. At Three Creek Dentistry, we take ample time to ensure your crown is tailored for optimal comfort and appearance. Our advanced technology allows us to take detailed measurements of your smile so that your restoration is a seamless fit. Dental crowns are an excellent way to restore teeth that are cracked or damaged. They are often used after root canal therapy, to ensure the affected tooth is properly protected in the future.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
There are situations in which a tooth may be damaged beyond what a simple dental filling can repair. However, the tooth may not be compromised enough to warrant a full crown. In such cases, a dental inlay or onlay may be recommended. Inlays and onlays are used on the back teeth or the molars. You can trust that our inlays and onlays are comprised of strong, tooth-colored material, and they effectively restore a large area of decay or other type of damage.
At Three Creek Dentistry, we never want your smile to be anything less than you deserve. Therefore, you can count on our Derwood practice to offer leading solutions in general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. We work hard to provide easy scheduling, a comfortable visit and stress-free payments so that every patient is able to get the timely treatments their smile demands.
