Crowns, Inlays & Onlays
Give Your Teeth A Second Chance
At DentaCare, we offer beautiful restorations to help you regain the function and beauty of your tooth. With our crowns, inlays, and onlays, we can provide your tooth with the strength and protection necessary to enjoy a healthy smile.
Crowns, Inlays, And Onlays
Your teeth may fracture and require repair for a variety of reasons, including trauma or large cavities. We can repair your tooth with inlays and onlays, or cover and protect your entire tooth with a dental crown. If the area between your cusps requires replacement, we may recommend an inlay. To replace your cusps and the supporting walls of enamel we may recommend an onlay or one of various types crowns. We make crowns using porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns, zirconia crowns, and gold crowns.
When a filling does not suffice, we will restore your tooth with either an inlay or an onlay. Inlays and onlays are conservative restorations designed to minimize tooth removal while maintaining the integrity and enhancing your tooth’s function, strength, structure, and appearance. When an inlay or onlay will not suffice, we can provide you with similar benefits using a dental crown. The benefits of these restorative procedures include:
- Saving your natural tooth while avoiding an extraction and a costly tooth replacement
- Eliminate or minimize further deterioration
- You can quickly regain your comfort for daily tasks that may otherwise feel like a burden including chewing your food and speaking
- Crowns may provide you with full restorative support after a root canal treatment and therefore prevent the tooth from fracturing into multiple pieces.
Is a Dental Crown Right For Me?
A dental crown may be right for you if your tooth does not require an extraction but needs substantial support and protection. An inlay or onlay is right for you if a significant portion of your tooth suffers damage but you do not require a full dental crown.
