In addition to improving the appearance of the teeth, the following procedures restore and repair teeth that have been damaged as a result of tooth decay, gum disease, or injury:
- Dental Bridges: composed of two crowns and a prosthetic tooth. Dental bridges are used to “bridge” the gaps where teeth are missing.
- Dental Crowns: A dental crown, is used to repair a badly decayed or damaged teeth. The crown is created from a mold of the original tooth, and then applied after the decay is removed and the tooth is prepared.
- Dental Fillings: A composite resin material matched to the natural shade of your teeth. Tooth-colored “white” fillings are an attractive alternative to silver amalgam fillings.
- Inlays/Onlays: Durable restorations used to repair severely damaged teeth. Inlays and onlays require less tooth reduction than crowns.
