Your teeth are extremely tough, able to withstand hundreds of pounds of pressure when chewing. However, they can still be damaged due to impact or pressure, especially when weakened by decay, disease or other factors. When a tooth is damaged, it may need repair, strengthening and protection. As part of our general dentistry treatments at Pure Smiles Dentistry, we offer durable, beautiful tooth restorations with dental crowns, inlays and onlays at our office in Marietta.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
When a tooth is broken, cracked or seriously damaged, it may need protection. Dental crowns are used to cover damaged teeth that are vulnerable or weakened. Teeth that have undergone extensive dental treatments like large fillings or root canals often need a dental crown to protect the weakened tooth structure. Dental crowns are also used for severe cracks or teeth that have been broken.
Dental crowns are created to fit over and replicate your natural tooth. Materials like porcelain or ceramics can be used to create a white dental crown that will match your smile. Our team offers a variety of dental crown options that are durable and aesthetically pleasing to restore cracked or damaged teeth.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
A full dental crown is not always needed to restore or protect a damaged tooth. In some cases, only a part of the tooth is damaged, but a filling or dental bonding is not appropriate for repair. Inlays and onlays are made from porcelain and designed to be bonded on the outside of the tooth for added protection and strength. They can be color matched to your smile so they blend in naturally while preventing further damage to your teeth.
