When Are Crowns, Inlays, and Onlays Used?

These restorations, much like a filling, replace damaged areas and restore normal function and appearance. An inlay will fit into a tooth's cusp, and an onlay will fit into the cusp. If these services cannot repair the damage, a full crown can save your tooth by covering the entire surface above the gum line. These restorations can assist:
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Closing unwanted gaps
What is the Process for Crowns, Inlays, and Onlays?
We will create a dental impression after the damaged sections of the tooth are removed that is used to create your custom restoration.

Daily brush and floss and visit our office for regular examinations at least every six months to keep your restorations in top condition.

Why do Some People Need Root Canal Treatment?
As with any medical procedure, there are instances when the treated area does not heal as expected. With root canal there are several conditions that may cause root canal treatment to fail, including:
- Complicated canal anatomy
- Narrow or curved canals missed in the first treatment
- Delay of crown placement following original treatment
- Salivary contamination inside the tooth
Other issues can jeopardize an effectively treated tooth, such as fresh root decay, a loose or broken crown, or a fresh tooth injury. Advanced technology is constantly altering the way root canal therapy is conducted, so that re-treatment can significantly improve many processes. The significant thing to remember is that if there is a powerful likelihood of saving the tooth, it is worth the effort to have a tooth handled again. For many years, a treated tooth can work and provide vital assistance for the gum and jaw.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth that is permanent and highly effective with a 95%-98% success rate. Implants create a permanent anchor for your restoration, from a single crown to bridges, to fill the space and stimulate your jaw bone for long-term oral health benefits.
What Are Dental Bridges?
If you have a few missing neighboring teeth, the gap can be filled by a bridge. The traditional fixed bridge is a popular option for anchoring replacement teeth using adjacent healthy teeth.
Fixed bridges for missing teeth are a permanent solution. Two crowns are attached to the adjacent teeth, and an artificial tooth is inserted in the middle to anchor the bridge. A fixed bridge prevents the remaining teeth from shifting and can be made from colored tooth materials to achieve your cosmetic goals.
Fixed bridges are a non-invasive approach that resembles your natural smile. Similarly, to crowns, fixed bridges require more than one appointment.
