Dr. Brian Wegley takes a conservative approach to restoring your damaged teeth. If your tooth needs to be repaired, he may recommend a dental onlay to restore the tooth while also preserving as much of your natural tooth structures as possible.

Dental onlays, sometimes referred to as partial crowns, are a type of restoration used to repair teeth that have been damaged or broken by cracking or decay. They are typically created using tooth-colored material (such as porcelain) or gold. Like a standard dental crown, onlays are custom made to fit your tooth perfectly and fully restore the shape, function and appearance of your tooth. Unlike crowns, however, onlays require very little tooth preparation prior to being placed in your mouth.
Our dentist may recommend an onlay if the damage on your tooth extends to one or more of the cusps, or pointed tips, of the tooth’s chewing surface. Dr. Wegley will carefully examine your teeth to determine the extent of the damage and whether or not a dental onlay is the right treatment for your needs.
