What Are Porcelain Onlays?
Porcelain onlays are often referred to as partial crowns, and they are generally placed on your existing tooth as a base and fitted onto the tooth. It is done to strengthen your tooth, to restore its shape, and to prevent any further damage. While a porcelain inlay is appropriate when there is no damage to the cusps of the tooth, a porcelain onlay is used when the damage is a little more extensive.
Benefits of Porcelain Onlays
At Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics, we will provide perfect porcelain onlays that will help to restore the natural strength and structure of your teeth, even if extensive damage or decay has worn away much of the tooth. The porcelain onlays look completely natural and can help prevent future issues from compromising what is left of the tooth.
What Is the Procedure for Porcelain Onlays?
First, the decayed area of the tooth is removed. A mold of the tooth is taken, and digital data is sent to the dental lab that will create a restoration porcelain onlay. Your porcelain onlay will be ready for placement in about 2-3 weeks, so a temporary onlay will be placed on the tooth for the time being. During your next visit, the onlay will be placed into your mouth and set with cement. Your tooth will look natural, and you won’t be able to tell the difference from a natural tooth.
