Often after having a large cavity or filling, a tooth may start to become weak and in some cases begin to crack or break away. In these cases it is important to restore the tooth in a way that provides strength and support. A crown is custom made for your tooth to cover and protect what is left and prevent further breaking.
Where you are missing a tooth, crowns on the neighbouring teeth can support a floating tooth made of ceramic to provide a natural looking replacement. This is called a bridge.
Inlays and Onlays are specialised fillings made in a dental laboratory that are cemented into your teeth. They provide a useful alterative to a large filling as they are strong, tooth coloured and only require removal of any weakened part of the tooth. These options can all be discussed with you at Jacaranda Family Dental.
