If you are in the Hickory, NC area and you have questions about whether partial dental crowns are right for you, give us a call.
Have you noticed that your teeth don’t seem to be holding up well or there may be damage that seems to be getting worse? Are you concerned because you had some previous tooth issues, and now they seem to be coming back? Our team at Hickory Distinctive Dentistry can assist you with strengthening your teeth by using partial dental crowns. Partial dental crowns will strengthen your teeth and make you feel more confident in your smile and regular daily activities.
Partial dental crowns are used when a regular filling may not be sufficient to strengthen your teeth and they need more support. Full and partial dental crowns cover a weakened tooth rather than a small patch that a filling provides. Partial dental crowns can be made of different materials, including porcelain, porcelain fused to a metal base, or full gold. While gold crowns used to be the standard choice, porcelain has become a popular option because it more closely matches the color of tooth enamel. This way, if you have a crown that is visible in the front of your mouth, you will still feel confident speaking and smiling because the crown will be less visible.
Partial dental crowns, also known as dental onlays, are a great option when fillings will not suffice but your tooth is not yet ready for a full crown. If you are in the Hickory, NC area and you have questions about whether partial dental crowns are right for you, give us a call. Our team can answer all your questions and set up your appointment. We want to get you on track for the best oral health! We look forward to working with you!
