A dental crown serves to restore a tooth to its original size and shape, or to get a complete "makeover" on an affected tooth. While inlays and onlays cover the chewing surface of a tooth and fillings fill in the empty interior space of a tooth, crowns cover every visible part of a tooth completely, which is why they are sometimes referred to as "caps." A part of your tooth remains but is essentially "rebuilt" to resemble the tooth at its exterior best.
At Radiant Kaneohe Smiles, we are well-versed in the ins and outs of inlays and onlays, fillings and crowns. We will look carefully at your individual situation and propose a solution that is best for you.
