Gallagher Dentistry & Facial Pain Center offers porcelain CEREC onlays. Porcelain CEREC onlays are used to protect teeth that are at risk of fracturing due to cracks or tooth decay. In these cases, the teeth have been weakened to the point that fillings cannot protect the teeth. Both porcelain onlays and crowns cover the chewing surface of the tooth, but porcelain onlays cover a portion of the chewing surface while crowns cover the entire chewing surface.
