What are Dental Onlays?
An onlay/inlay may be a good option with a structurally compromised tooth, especially with a risk for fracture with a regular filling. Alternatively, we may prefer an onlay/inlay instead of a crown to avoid removing excessive healthy tooth structure. Making the restoration of ceramic/porcelain allows the restoration to be bonded to the tooth. This bonding process may actually improve the strength of the tooth and help seal the onlay/inlay to the tooth.
