Dental Crowns and Onlays
Do you have broken, decayed or worn teeth?
Dental crowns, or caps may be the right solution for decayed or worn teeth. Crowns can also be used cosmetically to improve the shade and shape of teeth.
Even missing teeth can be replaced ...
In cases where teeth have been lost, a series of crowns can be used to create a bridge to replace these missing teeth. It is also recommended to place a crown after a tooth has had root canal or nerve treatment to help prevent future breakage of such teeth.

Do I need dental crowns?
There comes a point when damage to a tooth caused by wear, decay or breakage results in too little remaining tooth structure to hold a filling. The placing of a filling in such cases will temporarily restore the tooth but will not provide the strength necessary to help prevent future fracture or breakage of the tooth. In such cases dental crowns, or caps, are the treatment of choice. Depending on the amount of tooth structure remaining Dr. Babin will either recommend a full crown or a ¾ crown (often referred to as an inlay or an onlay).
Stronger, more natural-looking teeth
Crowns strengthen and restore the entire tooth. Recent advances in dental technology make it possible to provide our clients with all porcelain, non-metal crowns, resulting in dental crowns that are more natural looking than has ever been possible.
