An onlay is a type of partial dental crown, and it can be used to repair chipped, broken, cracked, and decayed teeth. Think of it as the middle point between a filling and a complete dental crown. An onlay simply fits onto the affected tooth just like a crown, but it only covers part of it as opposed to the whole thing. This kind of treatment allows us to preserve as much of your natural tooth as we can, which will make the tooth stronger over all.
Have a tooth that needs to be repaired? Is one of your teeth oddly shaped and doesn’t match the others? An onlay can address all of these issues, so be sure to contact our office today for an appointment.
