Even with good home hygiene and regular dental care, your teeth can sustain damage. Though you may have had restorative work at some point, most people don’t realize that these repairs can crack, break, or wear out over time. Our dentists can make recommendations to correct or replace deteriorating restorations with white fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays, or ceramic crowns.
To give patients attractive smiles and improved dental health, our office uses tooth-colored fillings and crowns whenever possible. Unlike metal restorations, all-white fillings won’t leak or change shape with age. They are designed to match your natural teeth and won’t call attention to your dental work.
Sometimes, a tooth needs more than a filling. Porcelain restorations, such as inlays, onlays, or crowns, strengthen damaged teeth and restore comfortable function. An inlay fits inside the cusps of the tooth, while an onlay extends down the side of a tooth. Dental crowns wrap around the entire tooth area above the gum line.
