Partial crowns and inlays

When a tooth is harmed by decay, all-ceramic inlays, onlays, or partial crowns can restore the missing tooth substance. The size of the deterioration and your personal tastes play a role in the choosing of dental fillings. After carefully deliberating the advantages and disadvantages of each choice, we will determine together which is best for you. Any associated costs will also be disclosed to you in advance. Before making a choice, you will have all the information you require.

What are partial crowns/onlays and inlays?

You might be curious about the solutions available to restore your tooth structure and, consequently, your smile while repairing significant cavities brought on by dental decay. When tooth fillings are no longer the most effective way to restore the missing tooth material, our dentists at our London dental office offer inlays and partial crowns as alternatives.

Dental porcelain is one of the materials that can be used to create partial crowns and all-ceramic inlays. Larger cavities, such as those brought on by trauma or extensive decay, are better treated with partial crowns than with inlays because they guarantee the restoration of an entire and stable biting surface surrounding the damaged tooth.

Who is a candidate for partial crowns or inlays?

Larger cavities in the mouth can sometimes be treated with inlays or partial crowns. Your dentist will be able to determine if you need an inlay or partial crown after your initial consultation. Your dentist may advise a more straightforward but equally effective course of therapy, such as a tooth filling, if the cavity is quite tiny.

What takes place during the treatment for inlays and partial crowns?

You can decide on your treatment plan during the initial consultation your dentist offers. Your dentist will also provide you important information about what likely caused the initial decay that resulted in the cavity and necessitated treatment.

The tooth is crushed down to a certain form after a local anaesthetic is administered, mostly removing the necessary enamel and dentin. Minimal intrusive dentistry is the name given to this strategy. Modern modern 3-D scanners are used to take the tooth's impression.

While our dental laboratory prepares the inlays or partial crowns, you are given temporary fittings until they can be cemented in place after seven to ten days.

Your new teeth are digitally engineered to be inlay- or partial-crown-ready using our cutting-edge CAD and CAM technology so that we can create an inlay or partial-crown that precisely fits your tooth.

When bonding ceramic inlays, a rubber dental dam is placed all the way around the tooth to serve as a barrier for saliva. As long as the tooth is visible, this helps prevent additional microorganisms from infecting or damaging the bond.

Similar to how inlays are bonded to the tooth, ceramic onlays and partial crowns are attached using an incredibly powerful adhesive cement. Again, a dental dam is used as protection during this operation.

One of our dental specialists will provide you all the information and guidance you might need regarding aftercare for your inlays or partial crowns after your procedure. We might advise going back to the hygienist later so they can give you more advice on keeping up a good oral hygiene practise to prevent future deterioration and harm to your inlay or onlay.
