Ceramic Tooth Restorations
In the last few decades there has been a continual push for dentistry to develop better looking, stronger restoration materials for back teeth. This has led to mainstream use of the strongest tooth colored materials available today.
The type of restoration that suits you best will be decided by you and your dentist.
Please contact our Campbell River dentist’s office for more information.
Gold restorations are safe, durable and similar in strength to your natural tooth. Gold has long been the material of choice for long term quality dental restorations, especially of the back teeth where the color is less likely to show in your smile. Gold’s malleability prevents chipping, cracking or breaking and gold restorations do not darken or stain over time.
If you have questions about gold restorations contact our Campbell River dentist’s office today.
Inlays (like the gold ones above) are conservative gold or ceramic restorations that are used to repair smaller decay in your teeth. These are “indirect” restorations that are very strong and durable in comparison to conventional “direct” fillings.
Onlays are larger gold or ceramic restorations that are used to repair teeth that have lost one or more of their cusps. Onlays are used when the amount of damaged tooth structure is too big for a conventional filling but still too small for a full crown.
Our dentists will work with you to determine the restoration is right for you. Please contact our Campbell River Dental office for more information.
