At Gorelik Dentistry, we strive to care for your smile using dental procedures which are kind to your health as well as cosmetically attractive to boost self-confidence. This is important because your smile is vulnerable to dental issues, including oral trauma, tooth decay, and other damage that comes with age, but that doesn’t mean dental restorations can’t be aesthetically pleasing in the process.

Thanks to modern dentistry, Dr. Julia Gorelik is able to offer our patients in Charlotte, North Carolina, custom porcelain onlays to fix tooth damage while being aware of your cosmetic needs as well as your tooth’s functional needs. Dental onlays cover one or more cusps of a tooth or even the entire biting surface. On the spectrum of dental restorations, onlays lie somewhere between fillings and crowns. Dental onlays are sometimes called partial crowns because they cover so much of a tooth area.

When Dr. Gorelik places our high-quality porcelain onlay, not only will it blend in naturally with your tooth as it is matched to the tooth’s size and shape, but it will be strong as well. What does this mean for your smile? A sturdy restoration that compliments your tooth’s appearance!

When a tooth has minor to moderate damage or decay, Dr. Gorelik can place a dental only on top of a tooth, in between your pearly whites, and even down to the gum line as needed. So whether you currently have a tooth that has chips or damage, a porcelain dental onlay can effectively restore your smile.

If you would like to take the next step in restoring your confident smile, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Julia Gorelik to determine if a porcelain dental onlay is the right option for you. Please give our Gorelik Dentistry team a call at 704-553-1627 at your earliest convenience!
