Aesthetic Crowns

“There are a few different types of aesthetic crowns. All ceramic (E-max, Zirconia, Porcelain fused zirconia), veneers and so on. I can do them all. But every patient’s case is unique and there’s not a certain procedure that fits everyone. When patients come in for a consultation, I evaluate the whole mouth and offer what’s best for the patient. Consultation including X ray is always free, there’s no hidden fee. If you would like to know what options you have, I suggest that you should call us to make an appointment for free consultation.”

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are often referred to as partial crowns. They use the existing tooth as a base and fit the inlay or onlay onto the tooth. This is done to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and prevent further damage. An inlay is done when there is no damage to the cusps of the tooth and the inlay can be placed right on the tooth. An onlay is used when the damage is a little more extensive.

The decayed area of the tooth is first removed during the procedure. A mold of the tooth is then taken and sent to a dental lab. They create a restoration made from porcelain, gold, or a composite resin. The restoration takes about 2-3 weeks to make, so a temporary inlay or onlay will be placed on the tooth for that time. During your next visit the inlay or onlay will be placed into your mouth and set with cement. Your tooth will look natural and you or anyone else won’t be able to tell the difference.
