Tooth-colored Treatment for Minor Decay

Porcelain Inlays, Onlays Manhattan

At times a restoration is slightly too large for a filling to be placed but too small for a porcelain crown to be necessary.  Porcelain onlays can match the color of the tooth exactly, are very durable and conserve the natural tooth structure.  Having our own esthetic lab on premises allows us to do the procedure in a relatively short period of time.

Steps of a Porcelain Onlay Procedure:

  • The tooth is prepared and cleaned as it is for a filling.
  • A precise impression is taken which is given to our in-house lab.
  • The technician and doctor consult on the shade of the tooth.
  • The onlay is carefully fabricated.
  • The onlay is bonded into place.

Advantages of Porcelain Onlays:

  • Saving of good tooth structure compared to crowns.
  • Since less tooth structure is removed there is less chance of root canal therapy.
  • Since the restoration is not touching gums (gingival) then less periodontal disease.
  • Very esthetic since the color is blended in.

There is no substitute for knowledge and experience.  A well trained dentist who has seen patients for many years will know whether to guide a patient toward a filling, onlay or a crown for the restoration that will serve a patient the best.
