We use tooth colored fillings which are known as composite resins. Composites are ideal for repairing small cavities, replacing defective silver fillings, and for small tooth abrasions or fractures.
When cavities or fractures are to large for a composite, an onlay or inlay may be the best long term solution. The Dentist will recommend this alternative because it is a stronger more supportive restoration. They are usually made of a ceramic material that is functionally and esthetically superior to regular fillings. Onlays and Inlays are not only stronger but they also allow the dentist to use minimal invasive technique to provide the highest level of care.
A crown is a full coverage restoration. In the situation of a severely compromised tooth a crown, is required as a result. Crowns allow the tooth to be completely protected 360 degrees of coverage. This is a painless procedure. A crown reciprocates all the same aspects of a natural tooth since it is made of materials strong enough to withstand a normal functionality. Properly maintained this option will last for many years.
A bridge is a alternative to a tooth implant in cases of missing teeth. When an implant isn't possible a bridge can be completed to replace a missing tooth, restoring esthetics and and function. A bridge is a one-piece restoration that is a result of joining crowns on each side of a missing tooth. The bridge will reproduce a similar form and function of the missing tooth and visually look like the tooth isn't missing at all.
