When the structure of a tooth is compromised, or you need a dental restoration, dental crowns are the best option for protecting your smile. At Royal Oak Family Dental, we offer durable and beautiful dental crowns, inlays and onlays to protect the structure of your teeth and restore your smile. We design customized dental restorations to repair teeth in our office in Oklahoma City.
Dental crowns are used for several applications in the dental field. A crown can be made to fit over an existing tooth for protection, or it can be used for tooth replacement with a dental implant. The crown is formed to look and fit like your natural tooth, but it is made from porcelain, metal or a combination of both. At Royal Oak Family Dental, we offer beautiful, white dental crowns that will blend into your smile and look like your natural teeth.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
When a tooth is cracked or damaged, it needs protection to keep it intact. Dental crowns cover the root of the tooth and provide a durable surface for chewing, protecting the inner tooth from further damage. In some cases, dental treatments are the reason a tooth may need a crown for protection. Root canals and large fillings may remove too much material from the tooth, weakening the structure. A dental crown covers the exterior and allows you to keep your natural tooth.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
In some cases, a full dental crown is not needed, but a tooth still needs protection or strengthening. Dental inlays and onlays are formed porcelain that are bonded to the tooth to give it strength. While large fillings can add pressure to the structure of the teeth and are formed in the tooth, inlays and onlays are crafted in a lab. They “patch” a tooth without the stress of a large filling and can repair a single side or the cusp of the tooth.
