Onlays, or partial crowns, are infinitely more attractive in a tooth than amalgam, which is metal combined with mercury. There are also health concerns revolving around the use of mercury. Dental crowns that are made of tooth-colored materials such as composite resin or ceramic don’t produce any of these concerns. They look very natural and appear to be the same as the structure of the tooth. These restorations also bond chemically to teeth, ensuring that they will expand and contract when there are changes in temperature. This will help to prevent cracking and breaking.
If your dental restorations look old and worn out, it’s time for you to take advantage of the latest dental technologies and materials to restore your smile!
