Dental Onlays vs. Dental Inlays
When your teeth are too damaged to support fillings, but not damaged enough to require crowns, you more than likely need dental onlays. In Houston, we implement dental onlays to restore large cavities without resorting to a complete dental crown.
The dental onlay typically covers the entire biting surface of your tooth, deeming it the "partial crown." We also provide dental inlays in Houston. These are similar to the onlay, but they only fill the spaces between the cusps or rounded edges of the tooth's surface. The material used in the dental onlay or inlay has the appearance of your natural tooth, making it less noticeable than other dental materials, such as metal fillings.
