Here at Smiles by Goh, our dentist and team take a conservative approach to restoring your damaged teeth. If your tooth sustains damage, Dr. Irwan Goh may recommend restoring it with a dental onlay to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible. Call 702-732-3754 today to schedule a consultation and learn more about dental onlays in Henderson, Nevada.
Dental onlays are a type of restoration used to repair teeth which have been broken or sustained damage from cracking or decay. Also known as “partial crowns,” onlays are custom-made to fit your tooth perfectly and fully restore the shape, function and appearance of the tooth. Unlike traditional dental crowns, however, dental onlays require very little tooth preparation prior to being placed.
Dental onlays are typically recommended when the damage on your tooth extends to one or more of the cusps (pointed tips) of the tooth’s chewing surface. Onlays are usually made using tooth-colored material such as porcelain or gold to give you a more discreet and natural-looking final result. Our dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth prior to providing an onlay to determine the extent of the damage and whether or not an onlay is right for your need.
If you have any questions about dental onlays or would like to schedule an appointment with our experienced dentist, please contact our office today.
