Inlays Onlays and Crown
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.
A dental crown is a restorative solution to the following:
1. Preparation of the tooth
2. Crown fitting
