When your teeth are damaged, they need protection to prevent further issues. The pressure from your jaw muscles when you chew or clench your jaw exert hundreds of pounds of force on your teeth. If they have a crack or extensive dental work, they can shatter. Dental crowns, inlays and onlays can offer structural support and protection to weakened teeth to prevent further damage. At Horizon Dental Care, we offer exceptional dental treatments for cracked or damaged teeth.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
When severe damage or deep cracks occur on a tooth, a dental crown may be needed to restore the tooth to health. Dental crowns fit over your inner tooth and create a new exterior. Ceramics can be used to create a white, natural-appearing tooth that blends into your smile. In addition to repairing teeth damaged due to trauma or extensive dental procedures, dental crowns are used to restore missing teeth. We use dental crowns in our dental implants and dental bridges to restore our patients’ smiles.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are another way we can protect a weakened or damaged tooth. Inlays and onlays are made from porcelain and are formed in our dental lab to replace missing tooth material. This is similar to a filling, except the inlay or onlay is created outside of the tooth, not hardened inside the tooth like a filling. Onlays and inlays are used for large repairs that are too big for a filling or in a position where a filling would cause too much stress on the tooth.
At Horizon Dental Care, we offer quality dental crowns, inlays and onlays to restore and repair damaged teeth. We offer same day CEREC dental restorations, so you can get your new crown, inlay or onlay in one visit.
