Crowns, Inlay, Onlay

If you experience pain when you bite or chew, you may have a cracked or broken tooth. Damaged teeth are not only painful, they’re susceptible to decay. Left untreated, decay can cause tooth, gum, and bone loss as well as whole-body health issues. Let Dr. Girn alleviate pain and restore your tooth’s structure with attractive, durable crowns, inlays, and onlays.

By fitting snugly atop your damaged tooth, a crown restores your tooth’s shape, function, and appearance and protects it from future damage. Dr. Girn may suggest an all-ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), or gold crown to restore your tooth. The material selected depends on the location of the tooth and the amount of stress in incurs. Because a crown looks and performs like a natural tooth, it blends seamlessly with your current dentition and preserves your bite and jaw alignment.

Crowns typically take two visits to create and place. At your initial appointment, Dr. Girn will examine your teeth, bite, and jaw and take a dental impression. While a trusted lab is handcrafting your custom crown, you’ll wear a temporary. During your second visit, Dr. Girn will place your permanent crown, reinforcing tooth strength and restoring comfort and function.

Sometimes a tooth’s damage doesn’t necessitate a full crown but requires more
restoration than a filling. In this case, Dr. Girn may suggest an inlay or onlay. An inlay fits within the bumps, or cusps, on the chewing surface of a tooth. An onlay fits over one or more bumps. Like crowns, inlays and onlays are handmade in a lab and take two visits to create and place.
