Through a consistent routine of daily smile care and regular dental exams, you can keep your risk for oral health issues low. Unfortunately, problems can still occur and lead to the need for restorative dental work. At our Seattle, WA dentist’s office, we can provide support for your smile through different forms of treatment. Because we offer both partial and full crowns, we can actually offer more control over the kind of care involved in protecting a vulnerable tooth. When significant support is needed to save your complete smile, we can use a full crown to provide total coverage of a tooth above the gumline. However, we can also look for opportunities to restore teeth with custom partial crowns; these restorations do more than dental fillings, but they are still more conservative than restorations that fully cover teeth.
The Importance Of Dependable Restorative Dental Work
Through the dependable restorative treatments we offer at our practice, we can take on problems with teeth that are in poor health, look unattractive, and otherwise need attention. The right kind of support can have significant long-term value. One way we provide a positive experience is by using materials that imitate healthy enamel during procedures. This enables us to preserve your smile even when restorations are placed in areas that are more conspicuous. We can also offer greater support by using both partial and full crowns in care.
We Use Full And Partial Crowns To Take Care Of Teeth
While full crowns are needed for some treatments, it is not always necessary to provide this kind of coverage. What we can do instead is see if a partial crown will help. Partial crowns cover limited areas, but still offer more coverage than fillings. Inlays cover space between cusps, while onlays can cover cusps and portions of the overall tooth structure. The good news is that if you do require a full crown, we can place one that is strong enough to offer lasting bite support and still capable of preserving the way you look.
Keeping Up With Regular Dental Checkups And Cleanings
If you want to avoid the kinds of oral health problems that make crowns necessary, we can make sure you have your regular dental exams booked. During these visits, we provide careful evaluations of teeth as well as cleanings that will help you avoid issues with dental decay.
