Onlays are used on teeth to restore a decayed or cracked tooth. An onlay is similar to a filling, except that it is made in a dental lab and placed by a dentist. The advantage of getting an onlay instead of a filling is that an onlay is stronger and it can repair the cusps of the tooth.

There is no typical cost for an onlay; there are too many variables to consider. The main driver of your dental onlay cost is the material used in the onlay. For example, gold only will be more expensive than a porcelain onlay.
