Tooth Restoring Dental Crowns, Inlays & Onlays
Damaged or severely worn teeth can diminish your smile and jeopardize your oral health. Dr. Ramsey applies custom crowns, inlays, and onlays to renew smiles and restore oral wellbeing.
A crown fits snugly atop a structurally unsound tooth to return form and function and protect it from further damage. Dr. Ramsey uses all-ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-gold, and gold crowns. He’ll consider tooth location and stressors to determine the ideal material for your crown. All-ceramic crowns look and feel like natural teeth, so know one will know you have a crown, but they will notice your beautiful smile!
A custom crown takes three visits to design and place. Following an in-depth consultation and thorough exam, Dr. Ramsey will prepare your tooth for restoration, take a dental impression, and fit you with a temporary. A skilled ceramist at a trusted lab will create your crown in a shade matching your existing smile. When your dental work is completed, Dr. Ramsey will remove the temporary and permanently affix your crown to renew your smile and your confidence.
Dr. Ramsey may suggest an inlay or onlay if your damaged tooth doesn’t require a full crown but needs more restoration than a filling can provide. Inlays fit within the cusps, or bumps, of a tooth. Onlays cover one or more bumps. Like crowns, inlays and onlays are custom restorations designed for your unique smile.
