Do Damaged or Missing Teeth Cause Discomfort?

Denal Crowns & Bridges in Fairfield, CT

Do broken or damaged teeth make you self-conscious about your appearance? At Jack Vayner, DDS Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Fairfield, we offer natural-looking solutions to restore your smile and boost your self-esteem.

Restorative dentistry, including dental crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays, offers several benefits:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth
  • Prevent facial sagging caused by one or more missing teeth
  • Chew all your favorite foods comfortably again
  • Shield surrounding teeth from damage and wear

Repair Cracked, Decayed, or Broken Teeth

A dental crown is a fixed prosthetic that protects cracked, damaged, discolored or broken teeth and creates a natural-looking, lasting result. Using a high-quality dental crown offers numerous benefits:

  • Preserves natural tooth structure
  • Protects a very damaged or broken tooth
  • Strengthens a worn tooth
  • Conceals a discolored tooth
  • Supports dental bridgework

With proper care, a dental crown can last 20 years or longer.

We Offer Same-Day Dental Crowns

We are pleased to offer CEREC same-day dental crowns and traditional lab-made crowns, which are both excellent options. Same-day crowns are perfect if you want to complete the entire procedure in one day; lab-made crowns are great for patients who prefer to break the process into two appointments.

Preparing your tooth for a crown involves reshaping it slightly, then taking mess-free digital impressions. If you opt for a same-day crown, we'll complete the process of milling your crown here at our Fairfield, CT, dental office while you wait.

A lab-fabricated crown takes about 2–3 weeks, and when it’s ready, you’ll return to our dental practice so we can check it for fit and cement it securely to your tooth.

Dental Bridges Replace Missing Teeth

If you are interested in tooth replacement to fill the gaps in your smile left by missing teeth, a dental bridge may be the best sol you! We recommend this tooth restoration to replace one or two missing teeth and give your smile a fuller look and feel.

At Jack Vayner, DDS, getting a bridge placed is similar to getting a dental crown. We first take an impression of your teeth, place a temporary, then have you visit us a second time to place the final bridge. The result is a lasting smile you can’t wait to show off!

Dental Inlays and Onlays in Fairfield, CT

We offer a variety of dental restorations designed to maintain your smile's health and beauty. Our high-quality inlays and onlays can restore a tooth structure affected by damage or decay.

Sometimes, a tooth is too damaged to restore with a filling but not so badly damaged that it requires a full crown. Placing a large filling would weaken the tooth and increase the probability of fracture; placing a crown requires removing more natural tooth structure than required.

In this case, a dental inlay or onlay is the ideal option to restore the tooth’s health and function.

How Dental Inlays and Onlays Work

The difference between an inlay and an onlay is the extent of coverage they provide. We place an inlay on the tooth’s surface between its points or cusps; an onlay covers one or more tooth cusps or the entire biting surface of the tooth.

Inlays and onlays are called indirect restorations because, unlike traditional fillings, they are first crafted in a dental lab and then placed on the teeth.

First, we prepare the tooth by removing the decay. Then we take an impression to send to a dental lab that prepares your restoration. We also fit you with a temporary restoration that we will replace when the final crown is ready.

Advantages of dental inlays and onlays include:

  • Preserve more of your natural tooth structure
  • Look natural and match the tooth we’re treating
  • Add to a tooth’s natural strength
  • Create perfect contours for healthy gums
  • Offer years of comfortable chewing function
