Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are custom designed to comfortably fit over the top of a single tooth that has been damaged by trauma or disease. Crowns help when there is insufficient tooth strength remaining to hold a filling. They are made using only porcelain, porcelain fused with metal, or gold and result in very durable, long-lasting protection for the damaged tooth. Bridges, like crowns, can be used to replace a single tooth, but they are also used to replace more than one missing tooth. Bridges are multiple crowns fused together. They are used to replace missing teeth.
Similar to other clear dental aligners, Inman Aligners are used to alter the alignment of the front teeth and straighten teeth that are crooked and crowded. The aligners work with the use of nickel titanium coil springs which apply pressure to guide teeth into their new position. Treatment takes much less time than treatment with traditional orthodontics, and can be completed within 18-24 weeks. Visit inmanaligner.com to learn more about Inman Aligners.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Also known as white fillings, tooth colored fillings restore teeth using a material that looks similar to that of the natural tooth. These fillings restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma. They can also be used to cosmetically alter the appearance – size, color, and shape – of teeth.
