At Complete Dental Care, Dr. Robert Doyle and associates are pleased to offer our patients in Shadyside, Ohio, dental inlays and onlays to fix tooth damage and restore the tooth’s function and appearance. Today we would like to talk a little about dental onlays.
A dental only is designed to cover one or more cusps on a tooth to repair the damage. Onlays can even be used to cover the entire biting surface if necesary. When it comes to size, dental Onlays are bigger than dental fillings but smaller than crowns. These dental restorations are sometimes referred to as partial crowns since they can cover so much of a tooth’s surface.
When Dr. Robert Doyle places your dental onlay, it will blend in naturally with your tooth as it is designed to match the tooth’s size and shape. This dental restoration gives you a durable fix while complementing your tooth’s appearance.
A dental onlay can be placed on top of a tooth, between the teeth, and even fill in down to the gum line. So if your smile currently has a chipped or damaged tooth needing an effective restoration, a dental onlay may be just what the dentist suggests.
