Dental Onlay Westlake Hills TX

Glint offers dental onlays for Westlake Hills patients to repair and strengthen damaged teeth without the use of more invasive techniques, like dental crowns. Often called partial crowns, dental onlays remove less of the tooth structure and provide a more durable solution for cracks and decay than fillings. By taking a more conservative approach, I can help you maintain a healthy smile while preserving the structure of your natural teeth.

Book a visit to Glint and find out if dental onlays are the right choice for your dental needs.

Understanding Dental Onlays

Dental onlays are an excellent option for restoring damaged teeth. Unlike crowns, which cover all or most of your natural tooth, onlays are designed to fit inside the grooves of your tooth, covering only the chewing surface. 

While dental crowns have their place in dental restorations, dental onlays can be a better choice for many Westlake Hills TX patients, especially when it comes to preserving the integrity of your natural tooth. In some cases, dental crowns may increase the risk of fractures and the potential for root canal treatment. At your appointment, I’ll start by assessing the damage to your tooth; if you have only minimal damage, we may be able to use a dental inlay instead. A dental inlay is similar to an onlay, but it covers a smaller area. 

Once placed, a dental onlay or inlay fully restores the structural integrity of your tooth, while also enhancing its appearance and function. Our onlays are skillfully crafted from ceramic to perfectly match the color of your natural teeth. Their exceptional durability ensures minimal discoloration over time for a long-lasting seamless and natural-looking smile.
