Do I Need A Full Or Partial Crown?

Did you know that we have different versions of a dental crown? Traditional crowns, and partials, help return damaged and decayed teeth to full function and health, while also preserving the appearance of your smile in the process. Let’s learn more about repairing smiles in Kahoka, MO, with our custom-made crowns!

Creating Restorations From Ceramic

We create crowns, inlays, and onlays from ceramic, a strong material that can withstand serious bite forces and pressure. In addition to the strength of the material, ceramic also contains stain-resistant properties and can mimic the translucent nature of tooth enamel, ensuring the completed restoration looks lifelike. We can even shade the material to better blend with the rest of your smile. Creating them begins with preparation, as we remove structure from the tooth. We next take detailed impressions of the tooth, which we use to craft the full or partial restoration. Using the impressions and images we take of your smile, we can create a custom option designing specifically for your smile, ensuring an comfortable fit and an attractive appearance that can last for many years.

Inlays and Onlays

A full crown covers the entire visible portion of the tooth, addressing chips, cracks, worn down teeth, and correcting misshapen or malformed teeth. Placement also secures a dental bridge and restores a single tooth dental implant. But for those with tooth decay too severe for a filling, but not serious enough to warrant a complete restoration, we may suggest either an inlay or onlay. The inlay fits in between the cusps on top of the teeth. An onlay fits over the cusps on top of the teeth. Being made from ceramic, these options can last for decades with proper care and attention. Keeping them strong means brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing every night before going to bed. We also suggest a diet that includes fewer sugary foods and drinks. Routine checkups and cleanings enable us to watch over your smile and also remove plaque buildup, safeguarding your teeth against the risk of decay and gum disease, two factors that impact the natural teeth your inlays, onlays and full restorations are attached to. If you have any questions about repairing your smile and protecting your teeth from serious oral health issues, then please contact our team today. We want to help you and your family enjoy optimal oral health!
