We all want to be more confident with our smile. For anyone who needs a filling replaced or is affected by tooth decay or damaged teeth, a crown or dental onlay can help. Onlays differ from traditional fillings and even inlays. Onlays provide strength and aesthetic appeal to your teeth. For more information on crowns, onlays and if either of these options are right for you, read more.
What Is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are commonly referred to as “caps” and are placed over your problematic tooth. These restorations can be placed over the tooth to restore its beauty and function. With dental crowns, there is no need to worry about tooth pain, insecurities or a damaged tooth.
Is a Dental Crown Right for You?
You may need a dental crown for a number of reasons. Crowns aren’t solely for cracked or decayed teeth. If you have broken, cracked, or severely worn down teeth, then dental crowns may be a viable option for you. Someone who has an unpleasant existing crown or needs to correct a bite issue may also benefit from receiving a crown. If you suffer from staining or want to prevent breakage in your teeth as well as garner a beautiful smile, then we recommend getting a cosmetic crown at Daxon Dentistry.
There’s no need to worry about the look and feel of your new dental crown either. With today’s technology, dental crowns are made from either dental porcelain or Zirconia and they last for years. They’re easy to maintain and feel just like your regular tooth!
What Is an Onlay?
Crowns are not the only option for restoring the strength and beauty of your tooth. An onlay also recovers the beauty of your smile by partially covering an infected tooth by holding it together. This is often times called a partial coverage crown or an indirect filling. Onlays are made from porcelain and have the look and feel of a natural tooth.
Are Onlays Right for You?
If you have weakened or damaged teeth and are looking for protection, then onlays may have numerous benefits for you. They are stain resistant, natural looking and require little tooth preparation. If you’re looking for a way to protect your damaged tooth with little maintenance, contact Daxon Dentistry today to learn more about onlays.
