To cover and restore a damaged tooth
A crown (also known as a cap) is a bespoke laboratory made covering placed over the top of your tooth to protect it. An onlay is very similar to a crown and preserves more tooth structure, so is used whenever suitable depending on the clinical situation.
At Clarence Dental Practice we provide a full range of expertly crafted restorations made using all ceramic (metal-free), porcelain bonded to metal and gold materials. The optimal design, choice of material and type of restoration will be thought over based on the individual situation of the tooth.
Many patients find that their crowns and onlays can typically last for 10-15 years or longer if they take good care of them and attend regularly for their routine examinations.
