Damaged teeth are susceptible to decay, infection and structural problems. When you sustain a severe crack or broken tooth, it is important to have your tooth repaired as quickly as possible. Our experienced dental team at Johns Creek Dental Studio offers tooth repairs with dental crowns, dental inlays and dental onlays at our dental center in Alpharetta, GA.
Dental crowns are used in tooth repairs and restorations. The crown fits over the damaged tooth. Some tooth material is removed, then a mold is made of the tooth that is sent to a dental lab. We use dental crowns for dental bridges, dental implants, cosmetic dentistry and for tooth repairs at Johns Creek Dental Studio.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
There are various ways teeth are damaged. Accidents and trauma can crack or break teeth, but sometimes dental treatments can weaken teeth. Large cavities and fillings or root canals can result in an unstable tooth. Dental crowns are used to restore cracked or damaged teeth when they have been broken, cracked or weakened with treatments.
Dental crowns can be made from a wide variety of materials, including metals, ceramics and porcelain. At Johns Creek Dental Studio, we can discuss the various options available. We offer white crowns that can be matched to your tooth color to maintain a white smile after your tooth restoration.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Not all damaged teeth will require a cap or dental crown. Some teeth that need restoration can be repaired with dental inlays or onlays that fit over the top of the tooth. These differ from fillings as the inlays or onlays are made to fit the tooth, not cured in the tooth. Inlays and onlays are usually made from white materials like porcelain to match the tooth color.
