In cases of severe wear onlays are a good solution to replace the tooth height and dimensions.
Onlays are made to replace lost tooth tissue often in cases of severe wear. They can be made from porcelain, ceramics or gold and help increase the dimensions of the tooth to replace this lost tooth tissue.
Inlays are placed within a tooth in the same way a filling is and can be tooth coloured or gold. Which material we use will depend on personal choice as well as potential wear needs.
We are also able to use Cerec for this purpose and can construct onlays and inlays chairside without the wait of having to send work to our dental technician.
