Dental Crowns & Onlays
Structurally damaged teeth are usually restored with dental crowns or dental onlays. Crowns and onlays are made from strong ceramic materials and are customized to fit your tooth without compromising its function and appearance. Our dentists will use these restorations to repair teeth that have fractured cusps or need very big fillings. Large amalgam fillings can be replaced with ceramic onlays, making the tooth stronger and more resistant to breaking. Not only are the teeth stronger, they can also look better. The strong ceramic material has optical and wear qualities very similar to natural enamel.
How We Can Help
You should expect two visits with your dentist at University Dental Professionals for a full crown procedure. At the first appointment, the dentist will prepare the damaged tooth, take a digital scan or impression, and place a temporary crown. Our dental lab will then create a custom crown according to the impression and your dentist’s instructions. At your follow-up visit, the temporary crown will be removed and the permanent crown secured. In some cases, we may have the availability to create crowns, inlays and onlays in one visit. If you are interested in visiting us for dental onlays or dental crowns in Chicago, Illinois, please call 773-684-5702. We look forward to hearing from you!
