Restoring broken and decayed teeth
Depending on the circumstances, these are a few ways to restore broken and decayed teeth:
FIllings are used to restore minor to moderate decay or fracture. Our office uses exclusively white (composite) fillings and never metal fillings. The advantage of composite is that is does not contain mercury, and when properly used it can bond into the tooth.
- Inlays and onlays:
Inlays and onlays are used to restore moderate to extensive decay. They are fabricated in the office with our Cerec Machine on the same day as your visit. They are tooth colored, and made out of material that is stronger than your regular composite. We use mostly emax tooth colored material or empress porcelain.
- Crowns, ¾ crowns:
These are used to restore moderate to severe decay. When the tooth is damaged beyond using a filling or inlay we resort to crowns. Crowns are also fabricated right here in the office with our digital Cerec Machine. We used several different bondable crown materials to give you the best customized crown. There is no lab time for those restorations and it is placed the same day.
