Sacramento dentists beautifully repair a tooth with a porcelain crown
It’s tempting to return a tooth to everyday function ASAP, but Drs. Kosta and Kristen Adams also consider long-term aesthetic and functional considerations with porcelain crown tooth repair in Sacramento.
The dental team wants you to be happy with the look of the treated tooth and with how it feels and works in your mouth. Many restorative options are as beautiful as they are functional, including:
- Porcelain veneers
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Aesthetic crowns, bridges, and implants
The procedures treat a range of needs. Bonding and veneers address chips or cracks that can threaten the structure of the tooth. Cosmetic fillings can repair cavities. For patients with advanced decay, crowns rebuild a damaged tooth. They fit over the remaining healthy tooth structure like a cap fits your head.
For patients with tooth replacement needs, a dental bridge or implant is designed so you don’t have to live with gaps. The bridge is securely fixed to adjacent teeth as part of a multi-unit system, while the dental implant is designed to function like your tooth’s root. When placed in the underlying bone, it eventually fuses with the bone. After this process of osseointegration is complete, a connecting abutment is added and the crown is attached to this strong foundation.
An important note on repairs
A big concern relates to the age of your restorations, be it fillings, bonding, veneers, or crowns. If restorative materials become worn, they are not effective at keeping out decay. Restorations such as veneers are very durable and stain-resistant but consistent, diligent oral hygiene and professional cleanings are important to keep them looking their best and functioning at their healthiest.
Don’t wait for concerns to become worse. If a tooth needs to be repaired for the first time or an old or worn restoration needs new life, call(916) 999-1302.
