Without immediate dental care, severe damage to a tooth can leave the structure weakened and vulnerable to further breakage. Whether the damage is due to trauma or extensive dental treatments, protection is needed to allow for normal function of the tooth.Book Now Call Now

When a tooth has been severely cracked or has lost tooth material during dental treatments or trauma, it can usually be repaired to save the tooth. Dental crowns are one of the most commonly used protective repairs for extensively damaged teeth, covering the entire tooth with a protective surface. Porcelain or white crowns are the most popular, as they blend in with the color of your smile. They can be used to protect teeth with large fillings or those that have had a root canal procedure. Dental crowns can also repair broken or cracked teeth, be used as part of a dental bridge or used for cosmetic purposes to hide dental flaws.
Another option for repairing and protecting teeth is adding material to the outside of the tooth for strength. Inlays and onlays are made from porcelain and are bonded to the tooth. They are created in a dental lab to fit your tooth. This is unlike fillings that are hardened inside the tooth. These options are used when a complete dental crown is not needed. This is usually when only one side or the top of the tooth needs protection. The porcelain material can be color-matched to the tooth, so the repair is almost invisible.
