Patients who are candidates for crowns generally have a large amount of decay, large fillings, or fractures due to stresses on these teeth. Teeth which are compromised in this way are weak and susceptible to fractures or breaking.
Tooth Colored Fillings
For teeth that have larger filling areas and/or cracks a material called an Inlay/Onlay may be suggested. Inlay/Onlays are lab made compressed porcelain materials used to fill in the area of the cavity/crack. Inlays/Onlays are very strong and exhibit excellent cosmetic and support characteristics.

Cosmetic vs. General Dentistry
A cosmetic dentist has the same basic training that a general dentist receives, but with some additional education having occurred as well. If you visit a cosmetic dentist for teeth whitening, your teeth must first be cleaned in order for the procedure to work well.

Contouring and Reshaping
Tooth reshaping and contouring, is a procedure to correct crooked teeth, chipped or irregularly shaped teeth or even overlapping teeth in a single session. Tooth reshaping and contouring, is commonly used to alter the length, shape or position of your teeth. Contouring teeth may also help correct small problems with bite. It is common for bonding to be combined with tooth reshaping.
