Broken-down Teeth

In cases where teeth are badly broken-down, restorations such as inlays, onlays and crowns may be necessary.

Inlays and onlays are indirect restorations (fillings) that are fitted to a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place. A crown is an indirect restoration which completely covers or encircles a tooth and is also cemented into place.

Crowns can be made from many materials such as gold, ceramic, or a combination of both materials. Crowns are often used to protect the remaining tooth structure and to improve the appearance of the teeth.
