Accidents happen that can leave your teeth broken, decayed, or severely damaged. When these issues are left untreated, it can cause serious problems for your oral health in the long run, resulting in the need for costly and invasive treatments. At Grand Dental in Franklin Park, we have two prosthodontic specialists on staff who can help restore the health of your smile without detracting from its appearance through custom plans for restorative dentistry in Franklin Park, IL.
Outdated amalgam fillings don’t just highlight decayed teeth, they also present a variety of other problems, like gum discoloration and the risk of infection due to leaking. At Grand Dental in Franklin Park, we use a biocompatible, tooth-colored putty called composite resin to fill cavities. It’s durable, natural-looking, and most importantly, will provide your tooth with long-lasting protection.
We craft functional and beautiful porcelain inlays and onlays to offer additional protection and support to damaged teeth. Inlays help support decayed teeth, almost like a filling, while onlays cover more of the surface of your tooth as well as the cusps. Both of these can be used to address severe decay, broken teeth, or chipped and fractured teeth. Plus, they can be custom-shaded to blend in with the rest of your smile.
Dental crowns are cap-like structures that are custom-made to fit over the biting surface of your teeth to provide them with support, protection, and a natural appearance. They can be made from a variety of materials, such as metal, zirconia, and porcelain, although many of our patients opt to have them crafted from the more natural-looking substances. We typically suggest them for patients who have misshapen, broken, or decayed teeth that need a little extra defense.
