Porcelain Onlays & Inlays
Porcelain Onlays and Inlays provide a functional restoration for partially damaged teeth caused by decay, cracks or other dental injuries. They are used to restore the functionality and appearance of a tooth that has been compromised but does not necessarily require a crown. The highly skilled team at Krawiec Dentistry has both the expertise and the latest in dental technology to repair your smile back to its original condition.
Inlays are designed to fill the space where a cavity exists and restore the tooth to its original look and function. Inlays come in a variety of styles including gold, porcelain, and composite resin and can be applied on all areas of the tooth including the surface. Unlike the other gold and resin inlays, the porcelain inlay provides a natural look that blends nicely into your existing smile.
Onlays are designed to cover and protect thin areas of a tooth and restore the tooth while preventing further decay. Onlays are the same as inlays with the exception that they are designed to replace a cusp. They typically are applied to teeth that need more extensive repair than a standard Inlay provides and where a complete crown is not needed. The same is true for an Onlay as with Inlays, porcelain provides a much more natural restoration than gold or resin.
Single Tooth Replacement Dental Implant
Dental implant technology provides a superior alternative to the traditional single tooth replacement option known as a three-unit bright or tooth-supported bridge. A tooth-supported bridge utilizes the two adjacent teeth around the missing tooth to support the replacement crown. This procedure is often implemented by cutting down or shaping the supporting teeth into a peg shape designed to fit the supporting cemented bridge into place. The downside to this procedure is that it destroys the natural bite shape and definition of the supporting teeth in order to properly support the replacement bridge.
Unlike the tooth-supported bridge, an implant-supported crown preserves the healthy structure of the surrounding teeth which significantly reduces the need for additional dental procedures to the tooth replacement in the future. Since dental implants are designed to utilize the existing jaw bone directly underneath the missing teeth, there is no additional damage to the surrounding teeth. In fact, dental implants promote bone growth near the missing tooth which also helps strengthen the bone around the adjacent teeth.
A Healthier, Longer Lasting Tooth Replacement
Unlike the tooth-supported bridge method, dental implants also provide a longer-lasting replacement solution that can last the lifetime of the patient depending on the placement and the individual’s bone health. Teeth supported bridges, on the other hand, frequently develop decay on the supporting teeth that can lead to root-canals as well as periodontal bone loss. These potential complications eventually lead to the failure of the overall bridge and additional procedures over the patient’s lifetime.
Dental implants not only provide a tooth replacement solution that is healthier to your mouth, they also provide additional benefits including:
- A much more natural look, feel and function
- A stronger bite that provides chewing that is much closer to a natural tooth
- Easier maintenance and cleaning
- It does not decay or lead to a root canal
Natural teeth are ideal for biting, chewing and maintaining mouth and jawbone structure, which is why a dentist’s first priority is to help restore, save and repair your natural teeth. However, sometimes a tooth extraction is unavoidable.
The dentist at your Krawiec Dentistry will make sure you’re comfortable before, during, and after your extraction procedure. This includes walking you through every step of the tooth extraction, as well as the use of local anesthetics. Feeling uneasy about your tooth extraction? Be sure to talk to your dentist about how you’re feeling so that they can help.
Why Do I Need a Bridge?
A bridge is a custom-made replacement tooth or teeth that fill the space where one or more teeth are missing. The bridge restores your bite and helps keep the natural shape of your face. This brochure will review the steps involved in making your bridge. Your dentist can recommend which type of bridge is best for you based on your specific needs.
Why you need a bridge
A missing tooth is a serious matter. Teeth are made to work together. When you lose a tooth, the nearby teeth may tilt or drift into the empty space. Your teeth in the opposite jaw may also shift up or down into the space. This can affect your bite and place more stress on your teeth and jaw joints, possibly causing pain and damage.
Teeth that have tipped or drifted are also harder to clean. This puts them at a higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease. When a tooth is missing, the bone may shrink. If that happens, it may change the way the jawbone supports the lips and cheeks. Over time, this can make your face look older.
