What are Onlays?
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?
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?
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.
