Options Beyond the Dental Crown
Technology and scientific advancement have given dentists several options to choose from for dental and cosmetic work. Here are three options that you can think through the next time you visit your dentist.
- The first option you should know about is what is called an inlay. This option is a tooth restoration method that is great for issues located on the top of the tooth. Your dentist will make an impression so he can fashion the inlay that will be bonded to your tooth.
- Onlays are your second option. If the dentist finds that the damage has spilled over the top of the tooth, they will often use an onlay to strengthen and protect the rest of the tooth. This area is all known as the bite area.
- Porcelain veneers are another option for crowns and bridges in San Diego, CA. Veneers are perfect for frontal teeth and can easily be copied to mimic the appearance of natural teeth.
