Dental Onlay vs. a Dental Crown:
Dental onlays are generally used to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma. Dental onlays can be an ideal alternative to crowns because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation but over time, with an onlay restoration, you may weaken the tooth’s structure causing the tooth to break, crack or eventually lead to a root canal. When you’re faced with the choice between a large tooth filling, an onlay or a dental crown, do you save money now and risk major dental problems down the line or undergo possibly an unwanted dental treatment?
Dental restorations, such as a porcelain crown, fixed bridge or fixed partial denture may be a better solution than a dental onlay. You can also talk to Dr. Wesley about a more permanent restoration called an Implant-supported crown. After a thorough evaluation Dr. Wesley will suggest a solution that will best meet all your dental needs.
