A porcelain onlay is similar to a crown in that it is designed to restore a tooth that is broken down so much that a filling is not enough to fix it. A porcelain onlay covers the weak or thin portions of the tooth and strengthens it so that it won't fracture. They are made in one visit with Cerec CAD-CAM technology.

Porcelain veneers are thin wafers no thicker than a fingernail that are bonded to your tooth to give the tooth a whole new appearance. This is the most elegant and the most versatile way to improve your smile. It can change the color, spacing, alignment, length, or shape of your teeth.
