Sometimes referred to as “dental caps,” Princess Dental Centre uses crowns to improve the appearance and health of your smile. If you are suffering from teeth that are chipped, discolored, have decay or breakage, consider crowning those teeth. By doing so you will enhance the strength of the tooth and get a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you want.
Ever wondered what the difference is between a crown, filling, dental inlay, or dental onlay? Crowns cover the entire tooth from the gum line up—so in essence, a crown becomes your new tooth surface because it completely envelopes it. On the other hand, fillings, inlays, and onlays only cover or fill a portion of the tooth, so your natural tooth surface still shows alongside. One similarity that crowns and fillings do have, however, is that many times they can be created from similar materials like porcelain, ceramic, or even gold alloy. Not sure which material makes the most sense for your crown? Ask one of our Dentists to tell you more about your crown options.
