Your Smile's Perfect Symphony

Reinvent Your Smile with Precision Onlays

Onlays are a conservative and effective treatment option for restoring damaged or decayed teeth. They are custom-made dental restorations designed to fit precisely onto the affected tooth, providing both functional and aesthetic benefits. Our dedicated dental team specializes in providing onlays as part of our commitment to delivering exceptional dental care and helping you achieve optimal oral health.

What are Onlays?

An onlay is a type of dental restoration used to repair teeth with moderate to extensive damage or decay. Unlike traditional fillings that are placed directly into the cavity, onlays are custom-crafted restorations that cover a larger portion of the tooth. They are made from durable and tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain or composite resin, ensuring a seamless and natural appearance.

How Do Onlays Work?

The process of getting an onlay typically involves an initial consultation, where Dr. Zemskova will evaluate your oral health, assess the condition of the affected tooth, and discuss the treatment plan. Once the tooth is prepared, impressions or digital scans are taken to create a custom-made onlay. The onlay is then carefully bonded to the tooth using dental cement, providing strength, protection, and an improved bite. With proper care and regular dental visits, onlays can provide long-lasting restoration for your damaged teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are onlays the same as dental crowns?

No, onlays and dental crowns are different restorative options. While both can repair damaged or decayed teeth, onlays cover a portion of the tooth’s surface, while dental crowns encase the entire tooth. Onlays are a more conservative treatment that preserves more natural tooth structure.

How long does it take to get an onlay?

The process of getting an onlay usually requires two dental visits. During the first visit, Dr. Zemskova will prepare the tooth, take impressions or digital scans, and place a temporary onlay. The impressions or scans are sent to a dental laboratory to create a custom-made onlay. On your second visit, the temporary onlay is removed, and the permanent onlay is bonded to the tooth.

Will getting an onlay be painful?

The procedure for getting an onlay is typically performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. You may experience some mild sensitivity or discomfort after the anesthesia wears off, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

How long do onlays last?

With proper care and regular dental check-ups, onlays can last for many years, often 10 to 15 years or even longer. Good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting our office regularly, are important for maintaining the longevity of your onlays.
