A great smile begins with healthy teeth and gums with general dentistry. Sometimes those teeth need a little help. When a tooth is damaged, it needs to be treated and protected. To do that, we offer dental crowns.
A dental crown is a prosthetic device that looks and functions like your natural teeth. Your Southern Charm dentist will have an impression made of your natural teeth. We’ll have a porcelain crown made to match your natural tooth’s shape and color and cement it over the damaged tooth for protection and to anchor the crown in place.
Dental crowns are a comfortable and durable treatment for damaged teeth, and are simple and painless to install and last for years.
Southern Charm Dental offers several dentistry options for the repair of cracked or damaged teeth. In addition to dental crowns, we can also repair a tooth with veneers, bonding or implants.
A veneer is a porcelain cover that is placed over a damaged tooth to provide a protective barrier for the tooth which matches its natural appearance. Bonding allows your dentist to repair the tooth with a composite material.
Alternately, you may also have a tooth repaired with an implant which is a device that resembles a natural tooth and anchors onto a post inserted into the bone where the damaged tooth has been extracted.
To repair a cavity or replace a filling, your Southern Charm dentist may recommend a dental inlay. That’s a composite or porcelain type of filling that is fitted to the cavity and cemented into place.
Onlays are similar, and are necessary when the damage to the tooth, the extent of a cavity, requires that the cusp of the tooth be covered as well. A dental onlay is typically made from porcelain and shaped to fit the existing tooth.
