Ceramic crowns, also known as porcelain crowns, are custom-made restorations that cover the entire visible surface of a damaged or decayed tooth. Crafted to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, ceramic crowns provide strength, stability, and aesthetics. Whether you need to repair a severely damaged tooth, restore its shape and function, or enhance its appearance, ceramic crowns offer a versatile solution with remarkable results.

Onlays, sometimes referred to as partial crowns, are conservative restorations used to repair teeth with moderate damage or decay. Unlike traditional fillings, which are placed directly into a cavity, onlays are fabricated in a dental laboratory and then bonded onto the affected tooth. By preserving more of the natural tooth structure, onlays offer a minimally invasive option for restoring strength and functionality while maintaining the beauty of your smile.

Similar to onlays, inlays are restorations used to repair teeth with moderate damage or decay. However, inlays are designed to fit within the cusps (bumps) of the tooth’s chewing surface, providing a more conservative alternative to traditional fillings or crowns. Made from high-quality ceramic materials, inlays offer exceptional durability and aesthetics, blending seamlessly with your natural teeth for a flawless smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Curious about ceramic crowns, onlays, and inlays? Explore our frequently asked questions to learn more about these precision dental solutions.

Ceramic crowns, onlays, and inlays are custom-made dental restorations crafted from high-quality ceramic materials. They are used to repair and restore damaged, decayed, or aesthetically compromised teeth.

Ceramic crowns are made from tooth-colored materials such as porcelain or zirconia, whereas traditional crowns may be made from metal alloys or gold. Ceramic crowns offer superior aesthetics and can be matched to the shade and translucency of your natural teeth.

Ceramic restorations provide excellent durability, strength, and aesthetics. They are biocompatible and blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, resulting in a beautiful, long-lasting smile.

With proper care and maintenance, ceramic crowns, onlays, and inlays can last for many years. Good oral hygiene practices, regular dental check-ups, and avoiding habits such as teeth grinding can help extend the lifespan of these restorations.

Ceramic restorations are highly versatile and can be used to address a wide range of dental concerns. However, certain factors such as the extent of damage or decay, the location of the affected tooth, and the patient’s oral health history may influence the suitability of these treatments.

The process typically involves an initial consultation, tooth preparation, impressions, fabrication of the restoration in a dental laboratory, and final placement and bonding onto the tooth. Your dentist will guide you through each step of the process and ensure your comfort and satisfaction.

Maintaining your ceramic restorations is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Practice good oral hygiene habits, including brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and attending regular dental check-ups. Avoid chewing on hard objects or using your teeth as tools to prevent damage to your restorations.
