What Is A Dental Crown?

There are times when the damage to a tooth is too severe for tooth fillings. For these situations, our dentists recommend a dental crown.

Carefully crafted to look like identical but healthy versions of your damaged teeth, our beautiful porcelain crowns fit snugly over the visible part of teeth, restoring the strength and look at the same time.

What Is A Dental Bridge? Is It Better Than Dental Implants?

If you are missing a tooth, we may recommend a dental implant to replace it. But some patients are not candidates for dental implants.

A noninvasive tooth replacement option is the dental bridge, which uses a replacement tooth held in place by two dental crowns, one on either side of the gap. You still get a beautiful replacement tooth but without oral surgery.

What Is An Implant-Supported Bridge?

Implant-supported bridges combine dental implants with dental bridges. Our dentists will use one or more implants to secure a bridge. This allows you to replace several teeth at once but with a restoration that can withstand more pressure than a regular dental bridge. With an implant-supported bridge from Volterra Dental, you can eat the foods you want in complete comfort.

What Are Inlays And Onlays Used For?

Inlays and onlays are partial crowns that can repair cavities too large for composite fillings. They also use a tooth-colored material. Inlays are used when the damage is in between the cusps of your teeth, whereas onlays can repair damage on the top and sides of your teeth.
