Onlays

Porcelain onlays

Porcelain onlays are a noninvasive treatment. They increase tooth strength and provide long lasting protection, while requiring less tooth removal than a full crown. If an area of fracture or decay is too big, fillings are not the right solution. The limited structure that is left undermines the walls of the tooth, an onlay can be used to both support and strengthen the area. Onlays only repair the affected area of the tooth, leaving the healthy natural part untouched.

A dental onlay is a restorative treatment for damaged and decayed teeth. Non-invasive and durable, dental onlays increase the strength and lasting protection of your teeth, requiring less removal of the natural tooth.Dental onlays restore the space in between the cusps, or rounded edges of the tooth, and covers the entire biting surface of the tooth. Because of their extensive coverage, dental onlays are sometimes referred to as partial crowns.
Onlays restore large cavities without having to require more involved treatment such as a crown.
Also, if an area of fracture or decay is too big, fillings are not the right solution. Onlays only repair the affected area of the tooth, leaving the healthy natural enamel untouched.

Are you a candidate to get a dental onlay?

Ideal candidates for dental onlay treatment typically have too much damage or decay in the tooth structure to be successfully treated using a filling, but have sufficient healthy tooth remaining to avoid the need for a crown. This allows the dentist to conserve more of the patient’s original tooth structure.
