Dental Crowns GeorgetownDental crowns are a restorative dental treatment used to protect or support a damaged tooth. Unlike bonding, dental crowns will strengthen as well as improve the look of the tooth. There are various other practical uses for dental crowns, including acting as a support structure for a dental bridge. When teeth are badly discolored, dental crowns may represent the best option for improving the appearance of your smile. The crown will completely cover the discolored tooth and each crown is color matched as closely as possible to the surrounding teeth.

Dental Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are used to improve the shape, strength and function of the teeth. However, the two treatments are applied to entirely different areas of the teeth. Dental inlays are used to correct spacing between the cusps of the teeth, whereas onlays cover the cusps of teeth.
Cusps are basically the biting surface of a tooth, so some teeth have more cusps than others. As such, dental onlays are commonly known as partial crowns. However, onlays are normally used where a crown or filling poses a risk of making damage worse.
