Porcelain Onlays – A Conservative Alternative to Crowns


An onlay is a porcelain filling that is custom made by a professional dental laboratory and is permanently cemented into the tooth by your dentist.

Advantages of Onlays:

  • More conservative than crowns because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation process
  • An ideal alternative to conventional mercury amalgam and composite resin fillings when much enamel has been lost
  • Strengthen teeth since they are bonded into place, unlike mercury amalgam fillings
  • Highly durable and clinically proven to last many years
  • Cosmetically pleasing since they are tooth coloured

Porcelain onlays are increasing in popularity due the general public's desire for a conservative way to replace their large failing mercury amalgam fillings.
