Crowns & Onlays

Crowns and Onlays are called indirect restorations, because the restoration is fabricated outside of the mouth, instead of being built in layers directly into the teeth like a filling. The dentists at Meadows Dental Group take impressions of the teeth, then the restoration is shaped to match the part of the tooth it will replace.

Crowns and Onlays are more effective than fillings in reinforcing teeth to withstand biting forces, and more resistant to further decay. If a tooth’s original structure is too compromised to support a filling, these indirect restorations can provide fantastic, long-lasting, beautiful results.
