Inlays and Onlays

What are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are restorations that can be used to improve damaged or compromised teeth. You can think of either of these restorations as a medium between a dental filling and a full dental crown. The inlay or onlay doesn’t require that the tooth be filed down to accommodate a crown, but it is larger and more durable than a typical dental filling. Inlays and onlays are custom made for each individual patient requiring one.

Why Are Inlays And Onlays Needed

Why are Inlays and Onlays needed?

There are several reasons why an inlay or onlay may be needed. Inlays sit more within the cusps of a tooth while an onlay sits over the very top of the tooth. Some reasons you’d need an inlay or onlay include:

  • You have a large filling in one or more teeth
  • You have slightly cracked or broken a tooth just on the top portion of its crown
  • You have a deep or large area of decay
  • You are looking for a long-lasting alternative to a filling
  • The tooth doesn’t require the entire surface to be filed down for a crown

Who is a candidate for Inlays and Onlays?

We can perform an examination to determine if an inlay or onlay might be needed. The restoration is made for you so that it fits perfectly. It can last for decades without needing any type of special care. The restoration is matched perfectly with the rest of your smile so that it isn’t noticeable.

What happens during the procedure for Inlays and Onlays?

We begin the process by removing old filling material and decay. If the edges of the tooth are sharp or jagged, we’ll smooth them out. Impressions are taken and used to make either an inlay or onlay for the tooth. Your next visit involves placing the actual restoration and then filing it down into place. You will love the way that your smile looks with its new inlay or onlay. The restoration can last for decades and provide you with a full, bright and healthy-looking smile.
