Pros and Cons of Dental Onlays


Posted on 3/1/2024 by Weo Admin
3D rendering of three teeth, one each with an inlay, onlay, and dental crownIf your teeth have cavities, we can recommend dental onlays to seal those holes and prevent further infiltration of bacteria. Onlays cover more extensive damage compared to fillings and inlays. These dental restoration methods can cover the cusps of your teeth and even cover the biting surfaces to offer robust protection for your teeth. In this article, we will explore the pros and cons of dental onlays:

Pros of Onlays



Durability

Onlays are created with a solid material that is not easily prone to wear and tear. This material offers a solid foundation for your teeth and maintains the right size and shape. Compared to crowns and fillings, onlays offer unquestionable durability.

Help Preserve the Structure of your Teeth

Another great benefit of the onlays is that they help preserve the structure of your teeth. When we are placing them, we preserve the structure of your teeth, as we only remove the decayed part and reshape your teeth. The dental tool is then attached to the teeth and compliments your bite.

Reduces Risks of Future Decay

Another significant advantage of the onlays is that they help to prevent future decay of your teeth. These dental tools will protect your weak and susceptible teeth.

Cons of Onlays



Requires Two Appointments

These dental tools cannot be fixed in one appointment. During the initial appointment, we first prepare your teeth and take the needed impressions, which are later customized in the lab. We first place a temporary restoration tool during the initial appointment. At the second appointment, we remove the temporary one and put in place the final one.

Costs

In terms of costs, onlays are more expensive than dental fillings. But since these solutions are durable, you are able to save money in the long run.

Onlays have their advantages and drawbacks, but their advantages are more. This dental restorative method is attractive and preserves the structure of your teeth. Contact our offices to arrange for an onlays evaluation.
