Crowns, inlays and onlays

If a cavity has grown too large for a traditional filling, a crown, inlay or onlay may be the best solution. A crown covers the entire tooth surface that extends above the gum line. An inlay fills a hole in the chewing surface on the tooth between the cusps, while an onlay fills a hole in the chewing surface and covers a portion of the outside part of the tooth. Ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal and gold crowns, inlays and onlays are options to choose from.

Typically, we can complete your crown, inlay or onlay procedure in two short appointments. Your first appointment will involve preparing your tooth, making an impression, gathering information for our dental laboratory and placing a temporary one. After your restoration is fabricated, you'll visit us for a placement appointment. Your crown, inlay or onlay will restore shape and function as well as beauty and comfort.
