Benefits of Inlays and Onlays

  • Conservative Treatment: Unlike crowns, inlays and onlays preserve more of your natural tooth structure, making them a less invasive restoration option.
  • Durability: Made from strong, durable materials like porcelain or composite resin, inlays and onlays can withstand chewing forces and last for many years.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Custom-crafted to match the color and contours of your natural teeth, inlays and onlays offer a virtually undetectable restoration.
  • Improved Tooth Strength: By reinforcing the tooth structure, inlays and onlays can increase the strength of a tooth by up to 75%.

The Inlays and Onlays Process

Consultation: Our dental team assesses your tooth’s condition to determine if an inlay or onlay is the most suitable treatment option.

Preparation: The decayed or damaged area of the tooth is carefully removed, and an impression of the tooth is made.

Custom Creation: The inlay or onlay is custom-made in a dental lab from the impression to ensure a precise fit and natural look.

Placement: Once ready, the inlay or onlay is securely bonded to the tooth, and any necessary adjustments are made to ensure a perfect bite alignment.

Q&A Section

How do I care for my inlays or onlays?

Inlays and onlays require the same care as your natural teeth, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups to ensure their longevity.

Are inlays or onlays better than fillings or crowns?

Inlays and onlays are often recommended when a tooth is too damaged for a filling but not damaged enough to require a full crown. They offer a durable and aesthetically pleasing middle ground.

How long does the procedure take?

Typically, the inlay or onlay process requires two visits to our office—one to prepare the tooth and take the impression, and another to place the inlay or onlay.

How long will inlays and onlays last?

With proper care, inlays and onlays can last for decades, making them a fantastic long-term investment in your oral health.
