REVIVE DENTAL IRVING
DENTAL CROWNS & BRIDGES
WE WILL MAKE SURE YOUR CROWNS LOOK GREAT
If you want to restore your smile, we can help you here at Revive Dental. Our caring team specializes in restoring smiles to the fullest! A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is cemented onto your natural tooth, resulting in long-lasting and fully functional tooth restoration.
Inlays and Onlays are used to repair damage to a tooth’s biting surface (or cusp) with a type of filling that is less invasive than a crown.
WHAT ARE INLAYS AND ONLAYS
Though traditional dental fillings are a great option for patients with minor
tooth decay, what are the options for restoring a tooth with significant
damage? Inlays and Onlays, also known as indirect fillings, are a wonderful
option of restoring a tooth with significant decay; they preserve the maximum
amount of healthy tooth structure compared to a crown, and compared to
a large filling they can actually strengthen the tooth!
Large fillings will actually weaken a tooth’s structure, greatly increasing the
risk of the tooth breaking, cracking, and eventually requiring extensive restorative treatment such as root canal therapy. And if a good amount of healthy tooth structure is still intact, a crown would needlessly require a large amount of the tooth to be removed.
What is the difference between inlays and onlays? Simply put, inlays fit “in” the tooth while onlays fit “on” the tooth; inlays fill the space in between a tooth’s cusps (biting surfaces), while onlays, required for more extensively damaged teeth, spread over the cusps or the entire biting surface of the tooth.
MAKE YOUR SMILE COMPLETE WITH DENTAL BRIDGES
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap between healthy teeth and a decayed or missing tooth! They are a wonderful restoration option for patients who do not have enough bone structure to support a dental implant, or who do not want to commit to an implant.
Bridges are a less costly alternative to replacing a missing tooth compared to a dental implant, and will still provide a long-lasting restoration to your smile!
WHY REPLACE MISSING TEETH
Besides potentially causing patients to lose confidence in their smile, a single missing tooth can have far-reaching negative effects on your oral health. A missing tooth can cause difficulty speaking and eating, and over time will result in the shifting of other teeth, bone loss, an uneven bite, and an increased risk of periodontal issues.
