Dental Crowns and Onlays
Do you have a tooth that is broken or severely compromised by decay?
Dental crowns and onlays can repair your teeth in a way that restores function, comfort, health, and the appearance of your smile.
At our Albuquerque, NM, office, we help patients experience the maximum benefits of this treatment...
An Efficient and Lasting Solution
That Looks Great and Feels Comfortable
A Long-lasting Solution
Dental crowns and onlays can last 15 years or more with proper brushing, flossing, and dental exams.
With CEREC technology, we can design and fabricate high-quality ceramic restorations in one visit so you can avoid the need for temporary crowns and multiple appointments. However, it is important to understand that materials other than porcelain will require multiple office visits.
The placement of crowns and onlays is virtually a painless procedure. We completely numb the treatment area to maintain your comfort.
We fabricate crowns and onlays out of high-quality materials that are virtually identical to natural dental tissue.

What about Dental Onlays?
For patients with mild to moderate tooth damage, our dentist may recommend the placement of dental onlays when you visit our Albuquerque dentistry practice. Onlays are:
- A more conservative option that only replaces the decayed tissue rather than covering the entire tooth
- Made in a single appointment using CEREC technology
- Custom-designed to blend with your natural dental tissue
Dental onlays are made of porcelain, and they are a long-lasting, durable solution for replacing decayed tissue on or between tooth cusps (the top projections of a tooth). After the tooth has been treated, the restoration is carefully crafted to replace the compromised tissue, fitting like a puzzle piece.
The Placement Process
"There's No Second Visit, No Temporaries."
Replace Missing Teeth with Implant-supported Crowns
Crowns can replace missing teeth when they are secured to dental implants. This treatment is an alternative to a traditional dental bridge, which relies on adjacent teeth for support. During a consultation at our Albuquerque practice, patients can find out if an implant-supported crown or dental bridge is the best treatment option. Dr. Wall does not place implants, but he can coordinate with other area specialists to help you take advantage of this solution.
