Inlays Onlays and Crown Treatment in Hayes | Hayes Dental Clinic

A crown is used to cover and restore a damaged tooth without extraction. Sometimes referred to as a cap, this procedure is used on damaged, fractured or worn-down teeth.

A cap is placed over the entire visible tooth down to the gum and cemented in place and is common in correcting issues like repairing broken or misshapen teeth or assisting with holding a dental bridge in place as well as protecting weak teeth from breakage.

Onlays and inlays are used by dentists when they have more healthy tooth to work with. Similar to fillings but made from much stronger materials, onlays cover the cusp of the tooth while inlays fit inside as a filling would do.

Crowns can be used on children to help protect teeth from decay, as well as assisting a badly damaged tooth that can no longer hold a filling.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a restorative solution to the following:

  • A decayed tooth
  • A broken or cracked tooth
  • To support a tooth which is predominantly filling
  • To support a dental bridge
  • To cover crooked or discoloured teeth
1. Preparation of the tooth
  • In your first appointment, one of our expert team will take an x-ray of your mouth to assess the root and tooth structure.
  • A local anesthetic will then be used if the existing tooth needs to be reshaped to make space for the crown.
  • An impression is made of your existing tooth so that the crown can be tailor-made and shaped to suit your tooth and mouth.
  • A temporary crown is fitted and placed to protect the existing tooth between appointments.
2. Crown fitting
  • You will visit our clinic a second time for your crown fitting.
  • Your crown will be permanently cemented in place. We will only fit the crown if you are completely comfortable and happy with the shape, placement and fit of your crown.
