Dental onlays are a type of restoration used to repair damage or decay and are also sometimes known as partial crowns. Onlays are typically created from tooth-colored material, such as porcelain or composite resin, or from gold. They are custom-designed to fit your tooth perfectly and provide a discreet restoration that can fully restore the shape, function and appearance of the tooth. Once placed, an onlay is virtually undetectable in the mouth. Onlays are also a more conservative treatment, as they work to restore the tooth while preserving as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.
Our dentist will typically recommend dental onlays when the damage to your tooth extends to one or more of the cusps, or pointed tips, of the tooth. We will carefully evaluate your mouth to determine if an onlay is the right option for you.
