When repairing a tooth that’s experienced decay, disease, or any other kind of damage, we take great care to ensure that your restoration is not only strong, but complementary to your smile as well. With all-ceramic crowns, you are free to enjoy the benefits of a durable, long-lasting restoration without the unsightly appearance commonly associated with metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns. Your all-ceramic dental restorations blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile, each carefully shaded to match the color of your existing teeth.
Our all-ceramic restorations can also be paired with dental implants for a more permanent and natural solution to tooth loss. A dental implant is a post that is surgically placed within the jawbone where a lost tooth once stood. Following a period of healing and osseointegration, Dr. Nagornaya attaches a custom-crafted porcelain restoration to the implant, completing your treatment. Finally, you can enjoy a fully restored bite and a beautiful smile!
For more than 100 years, dental fillings consisted primarily of an amalgam that included silver, mercury, tin, copper, and other metallic elements. Today, however, the preferred filling material is a tooth-colored and customizable composite resin. A mixture of plastic and glass, composite resin can be shaded to precisely match the color of your existing enamel. Rather than endure a smile marred by dark silver amalgams, you can enjoy a completely natural look with tooth-colored fillings.
The advantages of tooth-colored fillings range far beyond the realm of aesthetics. Whereas amalgam fillings are susceptible to changes in temperature, composite resin restorations maintain their size and shape even when exposed to heat and cold. They also require less alteration of tooth structure when placed, allowing you to preserve more of your natural smile in the process.
Do you plan on using dental implants to replace teeth? In order to make your smile complete, you’ll need a custom restoration. Our office is happy to design and place a dedicated ceramic crown that sits on top of your implant. Once it’s attached to the abutment, a small connector that attaches the two components together, you can expect long-term stability and regain confidence to smile and eat the foods you enjoy.
Porcelain Onlays & Inlays
In some cases, only portions of the crown need to be covered with a dedicated restoration. For example, the inner area of the tooth may be decayed to the point where a dental filling is not enough, but a crown is not necessary. In other cases, only the top half of the crown needs restoration, while the rest of the crown is relatively healthy. This is where porcelain inlays and onlays can be incredibly useful.
