Teeth Restored with Fillings, Inlays, and Onlays
If cavities are caught early, then decay can be removed and filled with either an amalgam silver colored filling or a tooth-colored filling made of composite resin. Fillings halt tooth decay and protect the tooth from further damage.
Durable porcelain inlays or onlays treat large cavities most effectively. These restorations are matched to the color of surrounding teeth, and the result is a flawless and natural tooth.
Dentists prefer to use porcelain inlays and onlays with large cavities because they do not crack with temperature changes or strenuous chewing, and this provides extra protection against tooth loss.
Dr. Rizkalla removes decay, and he then takes a high definition 3d image of the tooth. Based on the image, a lab recreates the section of the tooth that has been removed. Cement attaches the prosthetic onto the tooth.
Inlays refer to porcelain designed for the center of a tooth, and onlays are a porcelain prosthetic which includes the center section and the tooth cusp, or pointy part of a molar.
Crowns, Dentures, and Bridges for Renewed Beauty and Function
Teeth with severe deterioration or that have undergone root canal therapy usually require the placement of a crown. Porcelain crowns are durable, and they envelop the entire tooth, so that full function of the tooth is maintained. The porcelain crowns match the enamel on natural teeth surrounding it.
Rizkalla Dental Associates also provides beautiful restorations for those with missing teeth. The highest quality porcelain is used to create natural appearing prosthetics that enhance smiles and renew function. Tooth loss can be treated in the following ways:
- Traditional dentures and partial dentures are removable and stick to gums with an adhesive glue. They are aesthetically pleasing and restore function.
- Partial bridges or fixed bridges are fixed onto neighboring teeth with metal clasps. They are permanent, and they also give an enhanced appearance to smiles.
- Implant-supported restorations are attached to posts that have been fused into the jaw bone. These provide a complete restoration of tooth function, support the health of the jaw bone, and they are a beautiful and natural replacement.
