Dr Gidda helped create the perfect smile for me.
A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or have a very large filling. The crown fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. It will also be tooth coloured, giving the restoration a more natural appearance so it fits in with the rest of your teeth.
A crown could be a good solution for you if you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance. Crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more aesthetic smile. Also, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth.

Emax (All-ceramic) Porcelain Dental Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are a durable and aesthetic method of restoring a tooth that has been weakened, fractured or damaged by dental decay or an accident.
Inlays are used when the raised cusps of the tooth are not damaged. In contrast, onlays are provided when one or more of the pointed cusps of the tooth have also been damaged, therefore, onlays generally tend to be larger restorations than inlays.
If a considerable proportion of the tooth is damaged, or if the tooth has had root canal treatment (also known as a root filling), a dental crown is usually the best option to preserve and protect the remaining tooth. The diagram below illustrates the differences between a dental inlay, onlay and crown.

At Omnia Dental Spa all of our Emax (porcelain) inlays, onlays and crowns are carefully crafted by our very experienced and talented team of master dental technicians. Each restoration is bespoke and is handmade to fit your individual tooth. The shade of the restoration is precisely matched to the natural shade of your teeth to ensure the best possible cosmetic result. In fact, the results are so life-like that it is often impossible to tell that the tooth has been treated at all!

The replacement of traditional metal fillings and crowns with Emax porcelain crowns can produce a dramatic cosmetic improvement to your smile. The all-porcelain restorations are more natural and life-like as they allow light to pass through them in a similar manner to a natural tooth.
