Crowns are often used to repair teeth that have been fractured or damaged. A tooth that is damaged and broken can be susceptible to infection, discoloration, and also a candidate for a root canal procedure. Crowns are made from porcelain which helps them appear more natural. Traditional crowns have a metal lining that is noticeable and also causes a black line around the base of you gums.
Dr. Barney uses porcelain crowns in our Lewiston office to provide patients with the most natural feel and look.
A composite filling is just like a traditional filling but without the silver color. Composites are white in color and they provide a natural look to your teeth. The composite is made from a resin type of material which will bond to your tooth.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlaysare similar to crowns but they do not cover the whole tooth. An inlay and onlay only fix the portion of the tooth that has incurred damage. This procedure is best to use to use because it keeps your natural tooth in place and only corrects what needs to be fixed.
