Alternative to Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are used to repair or restore a tooth that is damaged by decay, disease or injury. A crown serves as a custom “cap” for the affected tooth, covering all its visible surfaces. In most cases, traditional methods of placing a dental crown require that a significant portion of the tooth be removed and reshaped. Unfortunately, this can include eliminating healthy tooth structure along with the damaged portion. As leading biomimetic dentists, we have helped countless patients avoid unnecessary dental crowns while saving their natural tooth structure.
Can Biomimetic Dentistry Help You Avoid a Crown?
Our dentists are trained to examine your tooth damage through a different lens than most traditional dentists. We use our extensive knowledge and training in holistic, biomimetic dentistry to consider ways to safely and effectively repair a damaged tooth without compromising its healthy tooth structure and performing invasive procedures.
Instead of a dental crown, which may cause undue stress and strain on the tooth and eventually demand a root canal or tooth removal, we may be able to restore the area of decay or damage with a custom filling, inlay or onlay. As biomimetic dentists, we utilize advanced dental materials and innovative adhesive techniques to produce conservative, long-lasting tooth restorations that are less likely to leak, fail or cause further tooth damage. Again, it takes our specialized skillset to go against the traditional approach of using a dental crown and provide a more natural and more sustainable solution for our patients.
We take immense pride in our ability to preserve your natural smile as long as possible, even in the face of decay or dental injury. Our level of precision and meticulous customization in restorative dentistry is truly unmatched. If you’ve suffered tooth damage and a dental crown has been recommended, we invite you to discover biomimetic dentistry as an excellent alternative.
