When a tooth suffers damage beyond what a dental filling can repair, a crown may be suggested. A dental crown is a proven and highly effective general dentistry treatment to restore a severely damaged tooth. When it comes to custom crowns, Elegant Smiles uses the most durable and natural-looking materials in the industry, allowing patients to get the most attractive and long-term return on their dental investment.
A dental crown essentially “caps” a damaged tooth. It is bonded directly onto the affected tooth and covers all visible surfaces. It is decay-resistant and able to withstand everyday dental function. At Elegant Smiles, we will take meticulous measurements of your tooth to ensure your crown fits comfortably. It can be customized in color, size and shape for a flawless blend with your surrounding teeth.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
If your tooth is cracked or otherwise damaged, its outer protective layer (enamel) is compromised. Not only can the fracture worsen, but the tooth is now left more vulnerable to harmful bacteria. To protect your oral health and restore your smile aesthetics, our dentists may recommend a custom dental crown. Rest assured that getting a dental crown at our Brookhaven office is an easy and streamlined process. We use advanced technology and a compassionate, patient-centered approach to ensure your smile is cared for the way you deserve. Don’t ignore symptoms of a cracked tooth, which can include painful chewing or sensitivity to extreme temperatures.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
There are times when a tooth may have an area of damage that is too large for a dental filling. However, it may also be too small to warrant a full crown. In such circumstances, a dental inlay or onlay can be used. These are excellent solutions that fill and repair the top surface of your molars or back teeth. An inlay bonds to the area inside the cusps of the tooth, while an onlay extends further to cover the entire biting surface. Our dentists will explain your treatment options carefully before moving forward.
