Repair The Structure Of A Damaged Tooth

When you suffer considerable damage to a tooth, such as the fracture or chip,  you will require a crown or onlay to restore your natural tooth.

What Are Crowns, Inlays, And Onlays?

Drs. Hobbs and Wyatt offer crowns, inlays, and onlays at DentaCare, so you can extend the life of your tooth and avoid an extraction. These restorations offer coverage and structural support to teeth missing a significant amount of tooth structure and are necessary to prevent further breakage or future infection. A dental crown is a very realistic type of prosthesis made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal, designed to cover and protect your entire tooth. An inlay replaces missing or damaged tooth structure between the “cusps” on the chewing surface of your tooth. Onlays are similar to inlays, replacing cusps and tooth structure along the sides of your teeth.

What Are The Advantages Of Crowns, Inlays, And Onlays?

A severely damaged tooth will not be able to heal or continue functioning without additional support. The advantages of crowns, inlays, and onlays include:

  • We offer beautiful dental crowns, including porcelain, zirconia, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), and precious gold
  • If you suffer from a large cavity too big for a filling, these restorative treatments may improve your tooth’s health and prevent further breakage or a complete fracture
  • Crowns preserve your natural teeth after significant treatment, like a root canal
  • Saving your natural teeth and prolonging their health with crowns, inlays, and onlays may save you time, effort, and money
  • Crowns offer cosmetic coverage of teeth with severe aesthetic concerns
