Now we're able to restore a broken or fractured tooth and make it look like a natural tooth again. Most of the products we use are going to restore the tooth in a way that looks natural and functions naturally and allows you to keep that area clean just like you would your own natural tooth.
A dental crown is an incredibly versatile dental restoration. It can:
- Repair a cracked or broken tooth, saving the damaged tooth from extraction
- Replace a missing tooth, as part of a dental bridge or when used with a dental implant
- Fix cavities that are too large for a filling
- Protect teeth from further damage
- Seal a tooth following a root canal procedure
- Cover cosmetic imperfections such as a stained tooth
To see if a crown or a bridge is the right fix for your dental damage, call 913-347-6682.
We’ll Ensure You Get the Right Dental Restoration
Crowns can be made of many materials, including porcelain, zirconia, and ceramic. We’ll help determine which one is right for your smile. Among the factors we’ll take into consideration:
- The problem you’re trying to solve
- The condition of your tooth
- The location of the tooth
- Your budget
If a crown isn’t the right fix, we may suggest another restoration. For instance, an inlay or an onlay works well for a cavity that is too big for a filling yet not large enough for a crown. Our dentists will use some of the latest dental technology to assess your condition, including digital X-rays. When possible, we’ll minimize the impact on healthy teeth. For instance, we can secure a dental bridge to implants to avoid drilling into adjacent teeth.
We’ll Administer Just the Right Amount of Anesthesia
If you receive local anesthesia before getting a dental crown or a bridge, you’ll appreciate our computer-controlled anesthesia delivery system. Instead of giving you “extra” anesthesia to ensure you are numb, we’ll dispense only as much as you need and only where you need it. We can even numb just one tooth! Using the right amount means you won’t feel an unpleasant sting when getting anesthesia or have a numb face for hours after your treatment.
No matter what kind of dental damage you have, we can likely repair it with dental crowns and bridges in Overland Park, KS. Call 913-347-6682 for an appointment.
