Dental onlays are tooth restoration devices that require far less of the tooth to be removed than when a crown is installed. Made from porcelain, onlays strengthen teeth and provide them with long term protection. When cracks or decay cover a large section of a tooth, fillings become impractical, and can only can be used to provide support and strength to the existing tooth structure. Unlike with crowns, onlays can be used to repair only a damaged section of a tooth, leaving far more of its original structure intact.
Porcelain is the most durable and long-lasting option for onlays. As with any other dental procedure though, correct oral hygiene routines and regular dental check-ups are required in order to keep the onlays looking good for as long as possible.
