An onlay is a type of dental filling where the cusps of the tooth are involved. It often is an alternative option to having a dental crown and is less expensive and more conservative therefore better for the tooth. It can be made from ceramic or gold and is fabricated in a dental laboratory.
The process of making a dental crown
There are many steps involved in making a dental crown. The tooth needs to be prepared and an accurate mould taken. This is sent to the laboratory where the dental technician creates a customised crown for your tooth. This will need to be carefully fitted and assessed for appropriate function and aesthetics.
