We offer dental onlay in great yarmouth & Lowestoft

What is an Onlay?

An onlay is a partial filling crown that covers the biting surface of the tooth. It may also replace one or more sides of the tooth.

What is an onlay made of?

Onlays can be either made of tooth-coloured ceramic material (such as e.max), tooth coloured composite resin (like a white filling) or of metal.

Your dentist will discuss with you which material choices are available and the advantages of each in your particular case.

All of our onlays are custom made for each individual case by a highly skilled dental technician to ensure an excellent fit and appearance.

Usually, we will need an up to date X-ray of your tooth/teeth to check that the roots are healthy and the foundations strong before commencing on the process of preparing your tooth for an onlay.
