While it is never desirable and rarely intended, tooth damage does happen. A tooth can weaken or fracture due to a number of factors, including direct trauma, infection or decay. When a dental filling is not enough to repair the tooth, a dental crown can be used as an effective and aesthetically pleasing dental treatment. At Fair Lakes Family Dentistry, we offer top quality dental crowns that look natural and offer long-lasting function. Restoring the integrity of a damaged tooth is important in terms of aesthetics, comfort and health.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
Modern dentistry allows us to fix cracked or damaged teeth using comfortable and flawless procedures. The first step is to evaluate the location and depth of the tooth fracture to determine the most appropriate treatment plan. Minor chips and cracks can often be repaired with simple dental bonding. If the damage extends into the inner portion of the tooth or to the tooth roots, a more durable restoration is needed.
Fair Lakes Family Dentistry offers a full menu of services to repair damaged teeth. These services include fillings, crowns and root canals as well as inlays and onlays. Neglecting to restore a tooth that is structurally compromised can lead to infection from bacteria invasion and even tooth loss. We invite patients to see us as soon as possible if they have damaged a tooth so we can restore it and protect it from further complications. Our office proudly offers emergency dentistry to children and adults in Cypress.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are an excellent method of repairing a tooth that is too damaged for a dental filling but not damaged enough to warrant a dental crown. They are made from strong porcelain materials that blend naturally with your natural teeth. An inlay fits inside the cusp tips of the tooth, while a dental onlay is larger and extends over the cusps of the treated tooth. Dr. Nail will be able to explain which form of restoration is best for your specific tooth damage.
