Dental crowns help to restore, strengthen, and improve the appearance of your teeth. To improve your smile we use All White Crowns made entirely of dental ceramic, i.e., porcelain, when the tooth’s appearance is a major consideration.
Modern crowns are very appealing. If you’re self-conscious about your smile due to cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with dental crowns.
Onlays & Inlays
Porcelain onlays and inlays are a strong, attractive, and safe alternative to metal fillings. Unlike traditional silver fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays strengthen the tooth rather than weaken it. The ability to “bond” to the tooth makes this restoration outstanding and since no metal is used, it offers the very best in natural appearance.
Onlays are used for large restorations. They restore the area inside the cusp and extend over one or more sides of the tooth. Because of their size they are usually made of porcelain.
Inlays are used to restore the area of tooth inside the cusps. They are a conservative tooth restoration that require far less drilling and preparation of the tooth than a metal filling. Inlays are usually made of porcelain or composite resin, making them “invisible” in your smile.
Combined Restorative and cosmetic
Procedures: Full Coverage Porcelain and Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns.
The advantages are : restored function, durability and cosmetics.
The disadvantages are: tooth reduction and cost.
Combined Restorative Cosmetic Procedures: Full Coverage Porcelain and Porcelain Fused-To- Metal Crowns. When the structural integrity of a tooth has been compromised by “old filling materials,” cracks and decay, a full coverage “crown” or “cap” is the indicated treatment. If the restoration is subject to display by the patient when talking or smiling, the “tooth-colored” porcelain crown or porcelain fused-to-metal crown is the treatment of choice.
