When a tooth incurs extensive decay, a crack, or significant damage, a dental crown, inlay, or on-lay can restore its function, structure, and strength. Dental crowns are created in a laboratory from materials that mimic natural tooth structure. Dr. Higginbotham and his associates place dental crowns, an established brand of great quality. A crown fits snugly over the portion of a tooth that extends above the gum line. Inlays and on-lays, also made in a dental lab, fit inside a hole left behind by tooth decay.
