Dental Onlay & Crowns
What is the difference between dental onlay/inlay and crowns?
Crowns are cap-like structures used when there is extensive loss of the tooth. Crowns cover the entire surface of a tooth or can substitutes the missing tooth completely. A crown can protect the tooth from breaking after a root canal surgery.
Dental onlay is a partial crown and used to restore part of a tooth. It usually covers the cusp of the tooth. Once designed correctly it fits into the affected area restoring the natural look of the tooth.
An inlay is used to repair the top portion of a tooth. It is similar to a filling and is used in cases where there is an extensive cavity.
Both crowns and onlay/inlay can be made from different materials. They are highly durable and usually last up to 10 years. They are usually made from either gold, ceramic, porcelain or a combination of both gold and porcelain materials.
Ceramic crowns or porcelain crowns can be made “white” or “tooth-coloured” to blend with the natural colour of your teeth to improve the overall mouth appearance.
