Advanced, Lifelike Dental Crowns
When a tooth is damaged, its ability to sustain the pressure of your bite is diminished. Therefore, in addition to fixing the damage to your tooth, your restorative treatment must also reestablish the tooth’s ability to function properly. Dental crowns are designed to restore teeth by completely capping them, which not only prevents further tooth damage but also effectively absorbs your bite’s pressure. Using advanced technology and dental materials to design the most durable and lifelike dental crown for your needs, we can help you restore the function and appearance of your tooth while improving your smile’s overall appearance.
Partial Crowns (Inlays & Onlays)
A traditional dental crown, or full crown, is called such because it replicates the crown (top portion) of your tooth. However, some cases of tooth damage don’t affect the tooth’s entire crown and may not require a full restoration to fix. In such cases, your dentist might recommend a custom-made inlay or onlay. Also known as partial dental crowns, inlays and onlays are designed to restore only the damaged portion of your tooth. For instance, an inlay can be placed in the cusps of your tooth’s chewing surface, or an onlay can be placed to restore the top and side of your tooth. Partial crowns grant you the benefit of restoring your tooth’s health and function while also avoiding extensive modification of your tooth structure.
