Tooth crown defect
INLAY, ONLAY – crown pins.
Inlay and Onlay are cosmetic porcelain fillings which eliminate the necessity of the prosthetic crowns implementation. They are very durable, aesthetic, attrision prone and they reconstruct the tooth tissue precisely. They can be implemented when the defect of a natural tooth crown is not too extensive. Its lack can be caused for example by a breaking in result of an injury or caries.
In case of a loss of a greater part of the tooth structure or a breaking of 3 or a whole tooth, a crown-root inlay is implemented. It is cemented in the root of a tooth and a prosthetic crown is placed on it.
