Restore Your Tooth More Precisely
The main goal of restorative dental treatment is to protect and reinforce a tooth that’s been extensively damaged or compromised in a variety of ways. Dental crowns accomplish this by capping a tooth’s entire top portion (also called a crown), restoring it and protecting the tooth from further damage that could occur from your bite’s pressure. At our office, we offer a wide range of dental crowns designed to meet every patient’s unique needs and preferences. That includes creating partial crowns that restore just the part of your tooth that’s damaged, rather than completely covering the tooth’s structure.
How dental crowns restore teeth
Healthy, natural tooth structure and the enamel that protects it are the strongest substances that your body produces. However, neither have the ability to repair themselves when damaged, and in more severe cases, the most effective way to stop a fracture or break from growing worse is to cap it. Some of the most common reasons why we recommend placing dental crowns include:
- Reinforcing a damaged tooth
- Restoring a tooth after root canal treatment
- Anchoring a dental bridge in place
- Improving a severely blemished tooth’s appearance
- Capping a dental implant post (to replace a lost tooth)
- And more
Why a partial crown may be better
Traditionally, dental crowns are created to completely cap a tooth, but in some cases, a tooth may not need to be completely covered in order to restore it. A partial dental crown, often referred to as an inlay or onlay, can be designed to address only the portion of your tooth that needs to be restored. Instead of preparing the tooth by modifying its entire crown, we can place a partial crown by preparing only a specific area of it, which helps you preserve more of the tooth’s healthy, natural structure.
