The application of crowns, bridges and even tooth implants is common and all are highly successful procedures. Using our state of the art dental centre we create crowns and bridges that are precision-crafted to restore your smile’s, appearance and full functionality of your mouth.
“My Downtown Dentist , we want you to speak, chew, and laugh with total confidence. Teeth weakened with old fillings, cavities, fractures, or missing teeth can be beautifully restored with crowns, onlays and bridges.”
Dental Inlays & Onlays
The are used to repair rear teeth that have mild to moderate tooth decay, or for cracked teeth where the damage does not warrant a dental crown. Porcelain, composite resin and sometimes gold are used to create inlays and onlays. Inlays refer to those procedures where the bonded material limited to the center of the tooth, while onlays refer to those procedures where the bonded material can extend further to one or more cusps of the tooth.
What are the benefits of inlays and onlays from My Downtown Dentist?
- Natural look: Inlays and onlays have a natural tooth color that makes them virtually invisible compared to metal fillings.
- Great fit: Inlays and onlays will not expand or contract based on temperature like metal fillings.
- Longevity: Inlays and onlays can last up to thirty years, longer than any other type of filling.
- Minimal tooth structure removed: Inlays and onlays require the minimal removal of a tooth’s surface, helping to preserve the maximum amount of healthy tooth structure while restoring decayed or damaged areas.
A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth. It extends across an area that has no teeth and is firmly held in place by your own teeth on either side of the missing tooth/teeth. A bridge is permanent and cannot be removed. If you take good care of your bridge it should last as long as ten years. It must be cared for similarly to your own teeth with regular cleaning and flossing.
At My Downtown Dentist, we will discuss in detail the procedure of preparing a bridge or dentures with you.
