Restoring weakened teeth is what will extend their life and keep a healthy mouth. Here at Southern Cross Dental of Colorado Springs, CO, we have several options for restoration. Whether there is a chipped tooth, a crack, decay, or a missing tooth, we have options for our patients.
Fillings are available for cavities and also for fixing cracked or chipped teeth. Tooth-colored resin can be used to be shaped over the imperfection, restoring its strength. Fillings are long-lasting and durable.
Crowns, inlays, and onlays are available for teeth that have a bit more damage. Inlays fix the inside of the chewing surface, onlays can fix the entire chewing surface, and a crown is a cap that goes over the entire tooth. These fixtures restore and protect teeth for a long time.
Dental implants are restorations for teeth that need to be replaced, root included. Implants are a great option for replacement because they are permanent. With good care, a dental implant can last a lifetime.
Dental bridges are another option for tooth replacement. Bridges replace a missing tooth by creating a bridge across the gap. They use crowns on adjacent teeth to hold the replacement in the open space. Bridges are a popular option and can last for over fifteen years.
We also offer full and partial dentures. Dentures are great for those who want a removable option. They can be placed conventionally or immediately.
