Dental crowns, onlays en facings
A dental crown is a cover or cap that is made of gold, zirconium or porcelain. It is placed over the tooth to restore it permanently. An onlay is a filling made of one of these durable materials and a veneer is a shield made of porcelain on the front of the tooth.
Dental crowns or onlays are needed, for example, when a filling has become very large (functional) or your tooth is very damaged or discolored and you want it to look beautiful again (aesthetic). In the latter case, you can also opt for a facing because you then have to grind less of your own tooth.
The crown has the advantage over a filling that the connection at the microscopic level is better and therefore in the long run there is less chance of new cavities, and that the material of the crown wears and discolors much less than the filling material.
When the own root is no longer healthy or is already absent, a crown can be placed on an implant. This is an artificial root made of metal, usually titanium.
