Advantages of Partial Crowns

When you have a mildly damaged tooth, it’s important to take the steps needed to restore the tooth and give strength to it once again. Normally, your dentist may recommend a dental crown to restore your smile. In order to install a dental crown, there’s a certain amount of viable tooth needed to cover the damage and your tooth will be modified to fit the crown, but there are options that can work for you. Instead of a normal full crown, your dentist may be able to offer partial crowns that cover part of your tooth without modifying its structure. Dr. Adam Byam at All West Dental in Lethbridge, AB, can explain how this restorative dentistry procedure can help strengthen your smile again.

What are Partial Crowns?

Partial crowns are also known as inlays or onlays, and which one you’ll need will depend on where the damage on your tooth is. This restorative dentistry procedure can be helpful in restoring your smile without modifying your tooth to fit into a normal crown. Your dentist will be able to restore the strength and appearance of a damaged tooth while still keeping most of the tooth totally intact. This will help prevent your tooth from being at risk for decay or for further damage.

Partial crowns are usually made of porcelain, which means they’ll be able to blend into your smile with ease, giving you a completely natural look that is also aesthetically pleasing, as well as strong, and reinforced.
