DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CROWN AND ONLAY CROWNS and ONLAYS are different ways to replace missing or broken tooth structure. How a dentist chooses between which restoration depends on how many teeth you are trying to replace. An ONLAY covers only portion of a tooth, and removes minimal tooth structure. Onlays are generally a more conservative approach. The ceramic onlay fits similarly to a puzzle piece and can blend in so well that often times you can't see where the tooth starts and the onlay stops. They are often used as alternatives to large fillings. When a white filling it too large, it often fails after a few years due to the tooth breaking down or a cavity. The white fillings are simply not as strong as ceramic and gold. A CROWN requires that the tooth is trimmed down and covered completely to the gum line. Both onlays and crowns can be made from ceramic or gold. The benefit of the ceramic onlay is the ability to match your tooth color. In areas where the material cannot be seen gold is a great choice because gold fits the closest against the tooth and it is extremely strong. Studies have shown that a gold onlays and crowns have lasted for 50 years! Onlays and crowns are made the same way. The dentist prepares the tooth, takes an impression, sends it to the lab to fabricated, and the tooth is cemented in at the following appointment. Onlays and crowns are important ways dentists can help save and preserve your teeth. |Dental Clinic In Vadodara| |Dental Implants Vadodara| |Best Dentist In Vadodara| www.upadhyaydentalvadodara.com
Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural. Composites cost more than amalgam and occasionally are not covered by some insurance plans. Also, no dental filling lasts forever. Some studies show that composite fillings can be less durable and need to be replaced more often than amalgam fillings. It generally takes longer to place a composite filling than it does for a metal filling. That’s because composite fillings require the tooth be kept clean and dry while the cavity is being filled. Tooth-colored fillings are now used more often than amalgam or gold fillings, probably due to cosmetics. In a society focused on a white, bright smile, people tend to want fillings that blend with the natural color of their teeth. Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by: • brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste • flossing daily • eating a balanced diet • visiting the dentist regularly. www.upadhyaydentalvadodara.com
