Understand The Procedure

Understand The Procedure
An inlay or onlay restoration is a custom made filling made of porcelain, gold, or lab processed composite resin. Porcelain inlays are popular because they resemble your natural tooth. A porcelain inlay is made by a professional dental laboratory and is permanently cemented into the tooth by your dentist.

Inlays & Onlays can be utilized to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma. Inlays are an ideal alternative to conventional silver and composite fillings because they are esthetic, last longer and their bond restores strength to the tooth. Also, they are more conservative than crowns because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation of inlays & onlays.

As with most dental restorations, inlays are not always permanent and may someday require replacement. They are highly durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.

Reasons for inlay & onlay restorations:

  • Broken or fractured teeth.
  • Cosmetic enhancement.
  • Decayed teeth.
  • Fractured fillings.
  • Large fillings.
