For some teeth, there is a need for a more extensive restoration than a filling, yet it is desired to maintain a large portion of healthy tooth structure. This is a scenerio where an onlay may be recommended. Onlays restore the part of the tooth damaged by decay, fracture, or excessive wear leaving much of the remaining healthy tooth structure in tact. Dr. Neelam will determine if restoring your teeth with onlays is right for you.
