What are dental onlays?

Dental Onlays in Lafayette A broken tooth can be a real pain in more ways than one. Having a broken tooth compromises the integrity of your tooth, creates sensitivity, and may cause sores due to rough spots.

Restorative Dentistry

Dental onlays are a restorative technique used to repair damaged teeth that do not need a full crown. They are created in a lab from our impressions to fit the missing portion of your tooth and then bonded permanently in place.

Onlays are usually made from composite resin that is colored to match perfectly with the natural shade of your teeth so nobody can tell that you have onlays in place. Onlays may also be made of porcelain or a combination of porcelain and metal.

Benefits of Onlays

The benefit of using a dental onlay instead of a full crown is that you are not needlessly prepping a tooth for a full crown when only partially prepping it for an onlay may be necessary.
