Dental onlays can be used to treat decay and repair damage to the cusp of your tooth or its biting surface to restore your tooth’s function and usefulness. Onlays are similar to dental crowns but only cover part of your tooth instead of the entire structure. They also require less filing and removal of tooth enamel for their application, which helps keep more of your tooth intact for treatment. If your tooth has sustained damage to the cusp or chewing surface, and you have been searching for “onlay dentists near me,” contact Dr. Balaji Srinivasan from Aesthetic Dental Creations in Jackson, New Jersey, to see if you’re a good candidate for dental onlay treatment.
Onlays are made of durable porcelain material and can be used to treat cavities, fortify weak, worn teeth, and repair damaged teeth so they can continue to be used. Onlays can also be used as a cosmetic treatment to refresh your tooth’s appearance. Dr. Srinivasan may recommend dental onlay treatment to:
Onlays are bonded directly onto your tooth to form a protective seal against decay and oral infections. At the same time, the bond fortifies your tooth to strengthen its structure. As onlays cover less of your tooth structure than a crown, Dr. Srinivasan does not have to remove as much enamel before applying the onlay to your tooth. Porcelain is the material of choice for onlay treatment due to its durability and natural tooth-colored appearance. With proper care, a porcelain onlay can last up to 30 years before needing to be replaced, making onlays a long-term restorative treatment.
