Despite your tooth enamel being the hardest substance in the human body, your teeth are not invincible to damage. When the exterior enamel of your teeth is damaged, it leaves the interior of the tooth vulnerable to extreme pain and infection. Dental crowns are an excellent way to cap the tooth to prevent internal damage in order to restore the health of your tooth. As a general dentistry treatment, Bear Valley Dental Care offers this procedure right here in our practice. As a cap for a damaged tooth, a dental crown offers a functional, beautiful tooth covering that can last for decades.
Dental crowns are individually designed to fit each patient’s tooth. Crowns can be made of different materials that are durable for the normal wear and tear that the teeth are subjected to each day. Dental crowns can be made of silver, gold or porcelain. Porcelain crowns can be color matched to the other natural teeth within your mouth. The experts at Bear Valley Dental Care can help you choose the best option for your smile.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
Dental crowns are commonly used to restore cracked or damaged teeth in order to protect them from further damage or infection. The tooth enamel covers the inner roots and nerves of each individual tooth. When a tooth is cracked, pressure from biting opens up the crack and allows bacteria to enter into the inside of the tooth. Root canal therapy is another option that can be used to save a severely damaged tooth.
At Bear Valley Dental Care, we help patients restore their cracked or damaged teeth with the proper procedure that they need. Our dental practice accepts many forms of dental insurance, and we also offer flexible payment options to help you receive the affordable care you need.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Some damaged teeth are too weak or fragile to support a tooth-colored filling. A suitable option to restore the health of your tooth is often a dental inlay or onlay. A dental inlay is positioned inside the top biting surface, acting much like a filling. A dental onlay covers the top center of the tooth while also extending over one or more of the tooth’s cusps. Dental onlays are often referred to as “partial crowns,” and are often a very suitable restoration option.
