Dental onlays fall somewhere in between dental fillings and dental crowns. Like dental inlays, onlays restore large cavities without having to use a crown. Dental inlays and onlays are the same kind of restoration, but they cover different proportions of the tooth.
Note : dental onlays are sometimes referred to as "partial crowns."
Dental onlays are more durable and usually last longer than dental fillings. The size of the filling and type of material you choose can help determine the life of your restoration.
Depending on your budget and needs, dental onlays can be made from gold, composite resin or porcelain.
If properly cared, a dental onlay can last up to 20 years, Your best bet for preserving the life of any dental restoration is practicing excellent oral hygiene. Brushing, flossing and visiting the dentist regularly will have a significant outcome on the success of your dental onlay procedure.
