Inlays and Onlays
Nowadays, having strong and healthy teeth isn’t an overwhelming task.
With modern dental innovations, you now have several options to choose from.
Each option is customised to address certain issues, at each level of severity. These options include inlays and onlays.
Inlays and onlays serve the same purpose as dental fillings and crowns. They are used to repair a tooth, usually, one damaged by infection or breakage.
Unlike dental fillings, which are constructed directly inside the mouth during your appointment, inlays and onlays are manufactured in a laboratory before being fitted to the tooth.
Benefits of Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays have the following benefits:
- Minimal removal of tooth enamel is required
- They last longer than dental fillings
- They do not expand and move around unlike dental fillings do when exposed to thermal changes
- They are more resistant to stains compared to other dental restorations
The Inlay and Onlay Process
Getting an inlay or onlay for your tooth usually takes two dental appointments.
Once your dentist has evaluated that you are an ideal candidate for the treatment, the affected tooth is prepared.
The decayed portion of the tooth is removed, and the tooth is properly cleaned.
Your Kellyville Ridge dentist takes an impression of the tooth, which is sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication on inlays/onlays.
A temporary restoration is attached in place to cover the tooth while your inlay or onlay is being manufactured.
During your second appointment, the finished inlay or onlay is bonded and fitted into place.
