Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but sometimes they need a little help with general dentistry. Dental crowns, inlays and onlays can add extra protection to the exterior of your teeth to extend their life. When a tooth is damaged or has had extensive dental work, it can become fragile. Our dental crowns and other protective repairs at Amber Hills Dental can protect your teeth while keeping them looking great under beautiful porcelain.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
Once a tooth’s structure is damaged, it is just a matter of time before it can crumble. A bite down on a popcorn kernel or even clenching your jaw can put enough pressure on it to fall apart. Teeth that are cracked, chipped or have large fillings can become at risk for extensive damage. A dental crown can cover the entire outside of your tooth and protect it from further harm. At Amber Hills Dental, we offer beautifully crafted dental crowns that fit comfortably over your damaged tooth and look natural.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
An entire dental crown is not always needed to protect a cracked or damaged tooth. In some cases, only one part of the tooth needs strengthening. Dental inlays and onlays are options to add a protective layer to the tooth, often using porcelain or other tooth-colored resin. The inlays and onlays are smoothed and blended so that they are not noticeable on your teeth for aesthetic purposes. These can also be used to cover up dental flaws and repair chips in teeth, both for health and cosmetic reasons.
When your teeth need protection, trust our dental experts at Amber Hills Dental to find the right solution for your needs. Dental crowns, inlays and onlays are excellent options to protect your teeth without marring the beauty of your smile.
