Damage to the crown of your teeth can lead to tooth decay, fractures or other problems. Your dentist may need to use fillings called inlays or onlays if more than a third of the top of the tooth is damaged.
Your dentist may need to use porcelain inlays or onlays for the back teeth, because they exhibit more force when biting. These fillings are created at an off-site dental lab. Your dentist will use a resin to bond them onto your teeth.
These fillings serve the same purpose as a crown, but they fit onto your teeth more naturally and are less noticeable. Please contact us if you want to learn more.
