All Ceramic Dental Restorations
If you have a damaged tooth in the front of your smile, the aesthetics of your teeth are as much of a concern as your oral health. A silver crown or other restoration can take away from the appearance of your smile in a significant way. Fortunately, all ceramic restorations offer a better solution. Crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays made out of natural-looking ceramic offer strength and beauty for many patients. Keep reading to find out more about this popular restorative treatment from Dr. Geoffrey A. Iverson!
Quality Restorative Dentistry
A dental crown is a restoration for a severely decayed or damaged tooth. A dental bridge fills in the gaps left by one or more teeth. Dental inlays and onlays restore a tooth when there is not sufficient room for a dental filling.
Most restorative procedures are completed over the course of two appointments to our state-of-the-art office. During the first visit, Dr. Iverson will prepare your tooth for the procedure, apply a temporary restoration, and send your thorough treatment plan information to our trusted lab. The crown or bridge is crafted by an expert ceramist in the time between appointments, and you return to our office once it is finished for the final placement. We use comforting sedation to ensure that you remain completely at ease throughout the entire process.
A Beautiful Solution
Dental crowns and other restorations can be made from a number of materials. Silver and porcelain fused to metal (FTM) are two popular solutions. While sturdy and long lasting, these options are also highly visible in the smile. Dental ceramic or porcelain offers a wonderful alternative. It is highly customizable to match the shade of your surrounding teeth, and it is also very sturdy. You can feel free to eat what you like and smile with total confidence with an all-ceramic restoration.
The benefits of all-ceramic restorations include:
- Highly customizable to blend beautifully with surrounding teeth
- Dental porcelain reflects light just like your natural tooth enamel
- Ceramic is highly resistant to stains and discoloration
- Sturdy and long lasting
- Completely metal-free
