The teeth that sit at the rear of your mouth are known as molars and they’re probably where you do most of your chewing, making them an important part of your smile. When a molar is damaged, it can be painful to chew the foods you once loved. A partial crown can restore your damaged molar and give you a strong and functional molar. Dr. Matthew Wessel, Dr. Joseph Santoro, and Dr. Matthew Cichowski at Grand Dental in Sun City, AZ, offer partial crowns to strengthen your damaged tooth.
What are Partial Crowns?
Partial crowns from your dentist in Sun City, AZ, are a great way to restore a damaged smile and a part of that is with partial crowns. Partial crowns are also known as inlays and onlays, depending on where the partial crown is placed. When a tooth is too damaged to be restored by a regular filling, an inlay or onlay can be used to restore the tooth to its former glory. This can also be done when the damage isn’t extremely extensive and tends to stay on one side of the tooth.
Just like full dental crowns, inlays and onlays are strong enough to withstand the daily pressures placed on your molars and look totally natural in your smile. They perfectly blend in with your tooth and can make your tooth look whole again. This helps to preserve your smile and will protect your tooth from any further damage from bacteria and decay.
