Keep your natural teeth

Saving your natural teeth is always the preferred choice and is therefore our top priority. Timely visits to the dentist can save your teeth. This allows us to use the original base, while minimally shaving your tooth down to accommodate a new cover such as a crown, inlay or onlay.

Crowns can be used to correct tooth colour and alignment defects, as well as structural damages to individual teeth. They can also be used to protect vulnerable teeth from future damage (such as teeth that had root canal therapy done on them previously). This means that despite being more invasive than a veneer, a crown provides more reliability when bite-strength is required and when there is more tooth structure missing.

Crowns come in three basic types: All-Metal (gold or zirconia), All-Porcelain or a blend of the two. While gold is the most reliable and structurally stable, porcelain, zirconia or blended options are often more cosmetically pleasing.

There are many options for restoring the health and appearance of your teeth. If you have had several fillings, your teeth may become fragile and more prone to cracking and breaking. In this case, an onlay may be your best choice. While being minimally invasive, it will replace your existing filling and cover some or all of the peaks of the tooth.

Whether you are looking to protect your teeth or smooth over some aesthetic flaws, D.R. Dental is well-equipped to help guide you and restore the natural beauty of your smile.

Crowns, inlays and onlays require that your tooth is first minimally filed down to accommodate the new dental fixture. After adjusting your tooth to the appropriate size, we will take a digital scan of your tooth to design a custom crown, inlay or onlay. The customized piece will be created in a high-quality lab to match the shape, size and shade of your natural teeth.

During the process of creating your custom tooth, you will be provided with a temporary crown to protect your tooth and maintain the aesthetics of your smile. The crown is customized to your tooth in a lab and sent back so that, it will be permanently fixed to your filed tooth.
