When it comes to dental treatments such as dental crowns, Thousand Oaks Dentistry pursues excellence. We realize the importance of providing dental restorations that mimic the look, feel and function of natural teeth. Therefore, if you’ve suffered from severe decay or extensive damage within a tooth, we can proudly offer a top-quality solution using a custom dental crown.
A dental crown serves as a “cap” for a cracked, damaged or weakened tooth that cannot be repaired by a dental filling or bonding. A crown covers all visible surfaces of the affected tooth and can be customized to match your natural smile in color, size and shape. At Thousand Oaks Dentistry, we have dentists who are exceptionally trained in general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Therefore, we understand the value in creating crowns that restore the health and strength of the tooth, as well as its attractive appearance.
There are times in which a tooth becomes damaged or injured more than what a dental filling can repair. However, it isn’t damaged enough to warrant a full dental crown. In such cases, we may recommend a dental inlay or onlay. These are special restorations that act similarly to a dental filling, yet they are uniquely designed for the chewing surfaces of the back molars. An inlay fits just inside the cusps of the tooth, while an onlay is a bit larger and extends over the cusps. You can trust that we will carefully explain your treatment options in detail before moving forward.
