Crowns & Onlays
A crown or onlay is a type of dental treatment used to repair teeth that are damaged, decayed, or have very big fillings. Here’s how it operates:
A restoration-required tooth is prepped and an impression is taken.
A crown is fabricated in a dental facility to exactly fit the tooth and complement the adjacent teeth.
The crown is then placed securely to allow confident eating and smiling.
If you have discoloured fillings and want to improve their appearance, a crown may be the best option for you. They can be replaced with crowns for a more attractive smile.
In addition, if you’ve had root canal therapy, you’ll need a crown or onlay to preserve the rebuilt tooth, letting you to eat normally and bite down on it. Crowns are also used to securely anchor a bridge or denture in the mouth.
