Part of our philosophy is to do the best dentistry but in the most conservative way possible. When a crown is done, the entire circumference of the tooth needs to be trimmed down. Often time this part of the tooth is healthy. This is where an onlay may be a better option because this healthy portion is preserved and protected. When the entire circumference is trimmed down, the tooth is subjected to more trauma from which it sometimes does not recover. They often times are not done by dentists because they can be more difficult and require exquisite attention to detail.
We are happy to offer this superb treatment option.
