Although our teeth are very strong, they aren’t always immune to damage from decay and infection. When your smile needs restorative work — like a filling, crown, inlay, onlay, or bridge — Pretoria Bridge Dental can get the job done.
Fillings & Crowns
When cavities form in the teeth, we simply remove the decayed material and fill the space with synthetic material. When a tooth has suffered more damage than a filling can handle — or if there are multiple fillings present — a crown covers the tooth to protect it from further damage.
CEREC is a highly effective means of replacing fillings and restoring teeth that are decayed, weakened or broken. CEREC dental restoration brings a tooth back to its natural strength and beauty – with all-ceramic materials that look natural and can be done in one appointment.

Inlays protect the biting area of a the tooth by placing gold or porcelain over the damaged area. The inlay is neatly glued onto the area, and will prevent further damage.
An onlay is similar to an inlay, except that it covers more of the surface of the tooth. It is like a crown, but it’s often preferred for its ability to preserve the structure of the tooth.
When a tooth is removed, you and your dentist may choose to replace it with an artificial tooth held in place by a bridge. The bridge simply connects the artificial tooth to the existing natural teeth for a snug fit.
A dental crown, sometimes called a cap, is an artificial tooth used to cover damaged, decayed, misshapen, or discolored teeth in order to protect and/or restore it. Dental onlays on the other hand are restorations that are used for teeth damaged by vacaties, decays, or fractures.
Your dentist is the best person to help you determine whether you should get a dental crown or an inlay. Contact us today to book an appointment to see if you should get onlays or crowns.
