A crown, also referred to as a cap, is used to completely cover a damaged tooth, typically the result of a large cavity or injury. In addition to strengthening the tooth, a crown will dramatically improve its shape and appearance.
There are two types of crowns, temporary or permanent. Temporary crowns are only used to protect a tooth until a permanent crown is made by our dental laboratory.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are often used in molars or premolars when a tooth becomes too damaged to support a standard filling. An inlay is an indirect restoration consisting of a solid substance (as gold or porcelain) fitted to a cavity or damaged and held in place using special dental adhesive.
An onlay is similar to an inlay, except that an onlay extends to replace one or both cusps. What’s great about porcelain materials is that they resemble your real teeth in appearance.
At Pioneer Hills Dental, we use a bridge to fill the space created by missing teeth if the gap cannot be filled with a dental implant. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically.
Patients who have a gap containing two or more missing teeth can also choose an implant-supported bridge. Implant-supported bridges are much more comfortable, effective, and they’re longer-lasting than regular bridges.
Your dental bridge and crown will match your natural tooth’s color to blend in flawlessly with your smile.
Dental implants are a tooth-replacement option that fills the gaps in your smile caused by missing teeth. Whether you’re missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or a whole arch, we can help.
Dr. Wolbaum is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, one of the most prestigious organizations for implant dentists. He’ll place your implant in the perfect location to support your smile. Dental implants are the healthiest tooth-replacement option available because they work to reverse the negative effects of tooth loss.
For your convenience, Dr. Wolbaum offers three types of dentures: partial, full, and implant-secured. If you’re missing one or both arches, we can create a custom-fitted denture that will give you the ability to speak and smile without concern.
Each type of dentures provides specific benefits. For example, implant-supported dentures give you the stability of dental implants without having to worry about removing them for cleaning.
