Dental Inlays & Onlays

Our dentist and team are proud to offer dental inlays and onlays as part of our comprehensive dental care services. These restorations are an excellent choice for repairing mild to moderate tooth decay or damage, providing a durable and aesthetic solution for your smile.

What Are Dental Inlays and Onlays?

Dental inlays and onlays are types of restorative treatments used to repair the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. They are ideal for teeth that have too much damage for a filling but not enough to require a crown. Inlays fit within the cusps (bumps) of a tooth, while onlays cover one or more cusps. These restorations are custom-made from materials such as porcelain, composite resin, or gold, offering strength and a natural appearance.

The Process of Getting Dental Inlays and Onlays

The procedure for inlays and onlays typically requires two visits. During the first visit, the damaged or decayed area of the tooth is removed, and an impression is taken, which is sent to a dental lab where the inlay or onlay is made. A temporary restoration is placed on the tooth for protection. On the second visit, the temporary restoration is removed, and the custom inlay or onlay is precisely fitted and bonded to the tooth.

Benefits of Dental Inlays and Onlays

  • Durability: Stronger and more durable than fillings, inlays and onlays can last many years.
  • Aesthetic Match: Made to match the color and contour of your natural teeth, they provide a seamless restoration.
  • Tooth Preservation: Less invasive than crowns, they require less removal of the tooth structure.
  • Stability: Help to strengthen weakened teeth, restoring their shape and preventing further damage or decay.
  • Biocompatibility: Made from materials that are safe and well-tolerated by the body.
