When a tooth becomes damaged or severely decayed, a dental crown may be used to restore it back to its optimal strength and form. A crown can be considered a “dental cap,” as it encases all visible surfaces of the affected tooth down to the gum line. At Short Pump Family Dentistry, we proudly offer quality dental crowns that are customized to match your unique and beautiful smile. We use dental crowns in restorative dentistry that are made of durable materials and are able to replicate the look and feel of your natural teeth.
Getting a dental crown is a straightforward, two-visit treatment that can successfully rebuild a damaged tooth. This includes teeth that are cracked, broken or decayed. Dr. Tse may also recommend a custom crown after root canal therapy. These are situations in which the strength or structural integrity of your tooth may be unable to support every-day dental function without a crown restoration. You can trust that we will carefully explain your dental procedure and allow you to take an active role in your oral health. When it comes to placing a dental crown, our Richmond office utilizes the best technology and materials in the industry. We want your restored smile to feel comfortable and look beautiful for years to come.
There are times in which your tooth damage may be more than what a dental filling can repair, but not extensive enough to warrant a full dental crown. In such cases, a dental inlay or onlay may be used. Just like our other services in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, we take extra measures to ensure your teeth are restored to perfection. An inlay and onlay are similar to a large dental filling and typically used on the back molars, either within the tooth edges or extending over the cusps of the treated tooth.
