Restoring part of tooth*

Procedure Details

This patient's tooth had a lot of decay. His tooth was broken, but most of the tooth was intact. I performed a conservative procedure, where I did a porcelain onlay. This procedure replaces the damaged portion of the tooth and the old metal filling without having to perform a full crown.

The Many Advantages of Onlays

Onlays are sometimes called partial crowns. The procedure is a conservative technique which achieves the same tooth strength and endurance as other dental procedures. To patients, onlays feel much like a filling. In most cases, onlays can be completed in one visit using CAD/CAM techniques.
