Dental Inlays and Onlays
For severely damaged teeth that are not suitable for conventional dental fillings, but not quite large enough for dental crowns, LifeSmiles in Houston recommends dental inlays and onlays.
These metal free dental restorations help you maintain the structure of the tooth. Dr. Randy Mitchmore designs the inlays and onlays using digital impressions before sending to a lab for manufacture.
The modern restorations replace the part of the missing tooth with strong porcelain that is matched to the color of your natural tooth.
Inlays are for tooth damage near the center while onlays are custom made for the outer surfaces of the damaged tooth.
Modern day custom made inlays and onlays replace the need for more invasive treatments such as dental crowns.
Proactive for Prevention
It is also important to note that being proactive and practicing preventive dentistry means you’ll be one step ahead of decay and disease.
LifeSmiles uses Cavitron, digital x-rays, ViziLite, and the Oral CDX Brush Box for oral cancer screenings in Houston.
Early detection is the key to everything in your mouth. Regular dental checkups in Houston mean less cavities and gum disease, but they also give you a better chance of beating oral cancer if diagnosed.
If you have chipped a tooth locate the pieces and get to the emergency dentist in Houston. Dr. Mitchmore and his team just might be able to attach the chips and bond the tooth.
Chronic tooth pain is a sign of something more sinister. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Mitchmore if you notice any pain regardless of how severe it is.
Any pain is an indication that something is probably wrong with the inside of the tooth. Bacterial infections are common with tooth decay and need to be treated quickly to avoid an abscess and root canal therapy.
