Dental Inlay And Onlays Cypress, Texas 77429
Onlays are used when tooth loss from decay or damage is extensive but not bad enough to require a crown. This procedure is sometimes referred to as applying a partial crown and is used to add strength to a weakened tooth. This is a conservative approach to restoring your tooth. As with a crown, the onlay is made in a dental laboratory from an impression made in the office. Until the onlay is ready, the tooth is protected by a temporary filling applied in the dentist’s office. When the onlay is returned from the laboratory, the temporary filling is removed, and the onlay is cemented into place.
