Crowns & Onlays
A simple solution for fixing teeth that are fractured, weak, or damaged is to use ceramic crowns and onlays. These are frequently the best option because they support regular tooth function and don’t need any particular maintenance beyond maintaining proper oral hygiene.
Dental crowns function as a form of cap over a fractured or damaged tooth. When a tooth is damaged or has decay that is too severe for a filling, they are frequently used.
Before moulding the remaining section of your natural tooth so that the crown can fit over it, any rotten or fractured regions must be removed. The crown itself is a piece of metal, composite, or ceramic that has been precisely fashioned to resemble your natural tooth.
What Makes a Crown Necessary?
Types Of Dental Crowns
Crowns used to be predominantly constructed of metal, usually silver or gold. These crowns were affordable and effective at protecting the damaged tooth, but they do not look natural next to a person’s other teeth. Ceramic crowns and eMax crowns are two of the many options available today for natural-looking crowns that meld perfectly with your natural teeth.
A low-maintenance solution for mending your teeth is dental crowns. In most cases, all that is required to maintain good dental health is routine dental cleanliness. They are susceptible to decay, just like your own natural teeth.
As a result, there's a risk you might require a new crown at some point. To avoid this, be careful about maintaining regular dental examinations so you can identify any early indications of deterioration.
Onlays only cover a third of the tooth's surface compared to a typical crown. These are utilised when a tooth's structural integrity is still intact but you need more support and coverage than a dental filling can offer.
