What Sets Our Crowns and Onlays Apart?

Dental crowns and onlays play a pivotal role in revitalizing damaged or decayed teeth. Our commitment to excellence begins with the selection of premium materials.


Unlike conventional options, our crowns and onlays boast durability, resilience, and a natural aesthetic that seamlessly blends with your existing teeth.


A dental crown, often referred to as a dental cap, is a custom-fitted covering that encases the entire tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crafted from high-quality materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys, dental crowns offer a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution for teeth affected by decay, damage, or other structural issues.

Dental onlays, also known as partial crowns, are conservative yet effective restorative options. Unlike crowns that cover the entire tooth, onlays are designed to address specific areas of decay or damage. They provide a tailored solution, preserving more of the natural tooth structure while still offering the benefits of restoration and enhancement.

Choosing Between DENTAL Crowns and Onlays

1. Extent of Damage

One pivotal factor influencing the decision between dental crowns and onlays is the extent of damage or decay in the affected tooth. Dental crowns emerge as the preferred option when the damage is extensive, necessitating comprehensive reinforcement of the entire tooth structure. In cases where a tooth has undergone substantial deterioration, a dental crown provides robust support, encapsulating the entire tooth and restoring both its form and function.

2. Conservative Approach with Onlays

On the other hand, when dealing with more localized issues or minimal damage, onlays present a conservative alternative. Unlike crowns, onlays are designed to address specific areas of decay or damage while leaving the majority of the natural tooth structure intact. This conservative approach is particularly advantageous for preserving as much healthy tooth structure as possible, contributing to the longevity of the tooth and minimizing unnecessary alteration.


3. Aesthetic Preferences

While both dental crowns and onlays offer aesthetic benefits, the choice may also be influenced by the patient's individual preferences and specific dental needs. Dental crowns, with their comprehensive coverage, provide a seamless and uniform appearance, blending effortlessly with the surrounding natural teeth. On the other hand, onlays, being a more targeted restoration, may be preferred for those who prioritize preserving the natural contours of their teeth while still achieving effective restoration.
