At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, there is more than one way to fix a child’s tooth. Whether it’s decay or a crack, we have a restoration option.
1. Dental Bonding
Bonding is used to correct chips, cracks, stains, and make teeth longer. It is also sometimes used to fill cavities. We apply a soft composite resin and mold it to the specific shape necessary. The resin is hardened with a special curing light.
2. A Filling (Inlay or Onlay)
A traditional filling is shaped and molded after it is applied to the tooth. Because inlays and onlays are constructed in a dental lab, they are commonly called indirect fillings. Inlays are applied to just the center of the biting surface of a tooth (not to a cusp or point) and are typically smaller than onlays. An onlay restores one or more cusps of a tooth.
3. A Dental Crown
A crown replaces the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring appearance, durability, and function. Crowns are used for teeth that have had a root canal, teeth with acute decay, or the replacement tooth in a dental bridge. Crowns can be made of all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all ceramic, or all resin.
