Onlays

A dental onlay is a restoration fabricated outside of the mouth to restore a tooth’s decayed or fractured portion. Onlays are a conservative treatment option for a tooth too weakened to be adequately treated with a filling but not damaged enough to need a full-coverage crown. This treatment has the advantage of preserving the healthy portion of the tooth while repairing the damaged part. Onlays are most often made of a tooth-colored porcelain material but can be made of gold in some cases. In either instance, after the onlay is fabricated, it is bonded or cemented onto the tooth.
