You deserve to smile widely and with confidence, but missing or decaying teeth make that nearly impossible. In addition, a mouth without all teeth cannot function properly, which means that you experience difficulties chewing and talking. Dental restorations can replace your missing teeth, but not all dental restorations are created equally. It is important for your oral health and overall wellness to ensure you take a holistic approach to your dental restorations.
Repair Teeth With Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays make it possible to restore and repair teeth suffering from mild to moderate decay. If your tooth is not damaged enough to need a crown, yet too damaged for a simple filling, an inlay or onlay can conserve the maximum amount of your original tooth structure and rebuild the rest.
Inlays and onlays are a safer and more efficient choice than metal fillings because they are durable, prevent the need for future dental work, strengthen your tooth by up to 75 percent, and even prolong the life of your tooth! Most inlays and onlays are made from porcelain or composite resin to mold to the exact shape needed to rebuild the missing part of your tooth in the most natural way possible.
Replace Teeth With Zirconia Dental Crowns
If you are missing an entire tooth or need to cover a tooth that has broken down, a zirconia crown is a much safer and attractive option than traditional metal crowns. Many metal crowns are actually produced with lead, the potent and dangerous chemical that can cause significant physical damage to your body and mind. While a lead-based PFM crown has a dark metal line around the gum, a zirconia crown is a safe and biocompatible material that creates a natural-looking tooth with a realistic white color, hardness, and resistance to wear.
The benefits of zirconia crowns don’t stop at their safety or appearance, either. Zirconia crowns are much easier to make than other tooth replacement options. CEREC technology scans the teeth and makes it possible to manufacture a custom crown that will fit your mouth perfectly.
