What is Restorative Dentistry?
No one wants to have a cavity! But if you get one, we can fix it using restorative dentistry. Restorative dentistry restores the broken down part of the tooth caused by cavities. With our expertise at Laird Dental, we make sure your tooth is as good as new!
What is a dental filling?
A dental filling is a material that replace your tooth structure that is damaged by cavities. We only use tooth color material for dental fillings. This will allow us to use the correct shade that matches your teeth for the most esthetic look. Our artistic dentist will carve and shape the filling just like your natural teeth! No one can tell you had a filling!
What is a Crown?
When more tooth structure is gone due to cavity or trauma, fillings can not restore the tooth. A crown is used to cover the tooth to protect it from further damage and to restore the lost structure. The crown is made in the lab on a model of your teeth and cemented on your teeth. A crown when done right, is very esthetic. It is very hard to distinguish a crown from a natural tooth.
What is an Inlay or Onlay?
Fillings are made of resin so they can not be durable for years. Inlay is a filling made in the lab from dental porcelain. Inlays are very durable and even more esthetic than a filling. Onlay is a restoration in between an onlay and a crown. Onlays can restore and protect the damaged tooth. Onlays and inlays are made in the lab.
