Crowns, Inlays, Onlays

When a tooth is over 50% filling it has been weakened and is at risk for fracture.

In these situations it is recommended to have the tooth covered by a crown, an inlay, or an onlay.

A crown can be made of many different materials depending upon the desired outcome to help prevent a fracture and eventual loss of the tooth.

A crown can make your tooth stronger as well as make it look better. It can protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that is already broken.

Inlays and onlays are partial crowns in that they protect the teeth but do not completely cover the tooth. Depending upon the specific needs of the tooth the doctor will choose which option is best for you.
