Dr. Robert Hays may recommend dental onlays to restore your damaged teeth and give you back a healthy, beautiful smile. Also known as “partial crowns,” this restorative treatment is typically recommended when the damage to your tooth is too extensive for a filling. Call us at 916-961-0163 to schedule your appointment with our dentist and learn more about dental onlays in Citrus Heights, California.
Dental onlays are custom created from porcelain, composite resin material or gold. Our dentist and team often recommend this treatment when your tooth requires more attention than a regular filling but does not need a full crown. Onlays are usually used when the damage to your tooth extends to one or more of the tooth cusps, or pointed areas on the chewing surface of the tooth. They are often created in a dental lab to ensure that they fit your tooth perfectly. Once placed, they are nearly invisible in the mouth.
Onlays are a more conservative treatment option, working to restore your tooth while preserving as much of your natural tooth structure as possible to promote better oral health long-term.
