Inlays and Onlays

Are you dealing with damaged or decayed teeth and seeking a durable, aesthetically pleasing solution? Inlays and onlays offer a conservative yet highly effective approach to restoring teeth that have been compromised by decay or injury. Unlike traditional fillings, which may weaken the tooth structure, inlays and onlays provide a durable and long-lasting restoration that preserves the integrity of your natural teeth. 

Inlays and onlays are custom-made restorations crafted from high-quality materials such as porcelain, composite resin, or gold. Unlike traditional fillings, which require the removal of a significant portion of healthy tooth structure to accommodate the filling material, inlays and onlays are designed to fit precisely within the prepared tooth cavity. This conservative approach preserves more of your natural tooth structure, resulting in a stronger and more resilient restoration.

Inlays and onlays are renowned for their exceptional durability and longevity. Made from sturdy materials that can withstand the forces of chewing and biting, these restorations offer superior strength and resilience compared to standard fillings. With proper care and maintenance, inlays and onlays can last for many years, providing reliable protection for your teeth and preventing further damage or decay.

Each inlay and onlay restoration is custom-made to precisely match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking result. Whether you opt for a porcelain inlay for its lifelike appearance or a gold onlay for its unparalleled strength, your dentist will work closely with you to select the most suitable material and design for your unique needs and preferences.

The placement of inlays and onlays typically involves a minimally invasive procedure that requires less tooth preparation compared to crowns or bridges. After removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth, your dentist will take impressions of the prepared tooth cavity and fabricate the custom restoration in a dental laboratory. Once ready, the inlay or onlay will be bonded securely to the tooth surface, restoring its strength, function, and appearance.

Inlays and onlays provide a tight seal that helps prevent bacteria and food particles from infiltrating the tooth and causing additional decay or infection. By sealing off the tooth cavity effectively, these restorations offer added protection against future dental issues, allowing you to enjoy improved oral health and peace of mind.
