Restore Your Smile with Dental Crowns in Lisle, IL
If you're self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with dental crowns, also called caps. A porcelain crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw's correct natural alignment.
We use all-porcelain crowns to maintain your fully white smile. Our precise color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. Porcelain crowns are also extremely durable and long lasting, and these benefits make them popular with dentists as well as patients. Typically, we can design, fit, and place your crowns in just a couple of short appointments.
Dental Inlays & Onlays
You have a big filling that needs replacement. Do you have to get a full dental crown? Not necessarily. A more conservative dental restorative option, inlays and onlays, fit into a tooth similar to a tooth filling, yet they are milled restorations, much like a crown. Inlays and onlays allow a patient to retain more natural tooth structure, which is always best.
Determining the Best Solution for You
Not every situation is right for an inlay or onlay, but dentist, Dr. Marchese, will assess your problem and determine the best solution for you. Because they are created in a lab like a dental crown, inlays and onlays require two appointments. At your first appointment, we'll prepare your tooth and provide you with a temporary until the lab delivers your final restoration. At the second appointment, the dentist will remove your temporary and cement your final inlay or onlay into position. After polishing and modifying the restoration as necessary to ensure proper bite alignment, you'll enjoy your stronger, healthier smile for years to come.
