When you’re concerned about your smile, you want to find the best dental solutions. At Great American Smiles in Austin, we’re dedicated to providing every patient with optimal dental services, and helping them restore their smile in any way possible. If you have a damaged tooth or stained enamel that you want to cover up, a porcelain restoration might be the best option. Our dentist will help you decide if a restoration is the right way to go, and explain the entire process to you.
What is a Porcelain Restoration?
Porcelain is used in many dental procedures, and as a material, it can remedy a number of issues. If you have a cracked tooth or a tooth that’s been severely affected by a cavity, a porcelain restoration can provide benefits that a regular filling cannot. An inlay can be used to cover the internal structure of the tooth, and onlays are used on the cusp of the tooth. The porcelain is stronger and more durable than a composite filling, and can often provide a better and more comfortable fit for the affected tooth.
A porcelain crown may also be a great option for restoring your smile, and any teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or broken can be repaired with a crown. If an inlay or onlay won’t suffice, a crown can cover the affected tooth and return your smile to its natural beauty. We’ll gladly answer any questions you have about porcelain restorations.
At Great American Smiles, we love helping people rediscover the brightness and beauty of their smiles. If you often feel self-conscious about your teeth, or you’re afraid to smile in public, contact our office today. We look forward to meeting you!
