Protecting your teeth is essential for optimal oral health and a beautiful smile. When a tooth is damaged or decayed, it needs extra protection to keep it in good health. At Converse Dentistry, we offer protective dental services to repair or restore damaged teeth. Our beautiful dental crowns, inlays, and onlays can give your teeth the extra protection and strength they need to last for many decades to come.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
Did you know the enamel on your teeth is the hardest substance in the body? Even with its superior strength, the exterior of your teeth can become damaged. Trauma to a tooth, extensive dental treatments, or prolonged decay can all cause damage to your teeth. Once the exterior is cracked or chipped, bacteria can infiltrate the interior of the tooth, causing more dental problems.
A dental crown can be used to restore a tooth that is cracked or damaged. Our expert team at Converse Dentistry can create an identical covering for your tooth to protect it when the exterior or interior structure has been compromised. We use crowns to repair damaged or cracked teeth. We also use them to protect teeth after a root canal or large fillings that can weaken the structure of the tooth.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
While dental crowns offer a complete covering to protect the tooth structure, sometimes only one part of the tooth needs extra protection. Inlays and onlays can provide strength and protection to one area without the need for an entire dental crown. Inlays can be used to cover one side or area of a tooth while onlays can be used for the cusp or top of the tooth. Our team will take the time to discuss your tooth repair options with you to determine the best treatment for your dental needs.
