A Dental Crown does exactly what it says on the tin, and provides your broken down or damaged tooth with a crown to protect it. While attempts may be made over time to repair teeth with fillings, sometimes the only option is to fit a crown, which can be either metal, ceramic or a combination of both materials. Provided they are created and fitted well, dental crowns have a lifetime of up to ten years.
Like an everyday bridge that connects two things, a dental bridge, connects two sides of a gap in your smile. The middle piece of the bridge is usually a replacement tooth, which will seamlessly match the colour of the teeth either side. A dental bridge is the more cost effective choice for filling a gap in a smile, if a patient does not want to choose the dental implant option.
An Onlay is the little brother of a dental crown, as it may only cover one cusp or point of a tooth, it can also be called a partial crown. Made of metal, porcelain or acrylic an Onlay is effectively a filling to repair damage to the surface of one of your teeth. Once again if done correctly and looked after, and with the right materials it should last you 10 to 15 years.
