With restorative dentistry, tooth damage doesn't always have to result in tooth extraction. Your dentist at Renaissance Dental Care, Dr. John Stockdale, will help restore your tooth damage with full dental crowns, partial dental crowns, or CEREC in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

What Are Partial Crowns?

Dental restorations such as partial crowns, full crowns, and CEREC in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, ensure that you won't lose your teeth to damage. Partial crowns help strengthen your teeth following mild to moderate damage. A partial dental crown is a great option for dental damage that's beyond a simple tooth filling but doesn't require a full crown.

Inlays and Onlays are partial crown types made to fit into your natural teeth perfectly. Treatment for your underlying dental problems such as tooth decay comes first before your partial crowns installation.

The Difference Between Inlays and Onlays

The difference between inlays and Onlays resides in where they are applied and the degree of dental damage they can correct. Inlays lie within your tooth cusps while Onlays extend further to cover multiple cusps.

Despite this difference, Inlays and Onlays are pretty similar. Inlays and Onlays comprise of the same materials and help reinforce weak teeth. The installation process for Inlays and Onlays is also the same. This process begins with a dental consultation where your dentist determines what type of tooth restoration will work best for you. Tinting your dental restorations such as partial crowns ensures they are the perfect color and blend right in with your smile.

Types of Partial Crowns

Your partial dental crowns may be composed of:

  • Composite Resin - Composite resin looks natural but may also be prone to damage and staining
  • Porcelain - Porcelain resists staining and looks natural. Porcelain partial crowns are also durable
