Inlays and Onlays

An inlay is basically a pre-molded filling that is fitted on the grooves of the teeth and does not get extended over the cusps. For Onlays, it covers one or more cusps. Both of them are considered to be indirect fillings due to the fact that they are fabricated outside the mouth. They work best for the tooth that has been moderately damaged by decay and is not extensive enough to undergo crown. Hence Inlays and Onlays are a form of restorative dentistry that would help you to retain healthy natural teeth.

How does it work?

The process of Inlays and Onlays is quite similar to that of a crown. The only difference being, the dentist would drill much lesser and hence less of your natural tooth structure would be lost in this procedure. This is a more constructive treatment as dentistry always aims at retaining as many natural teeth as possible. Some benefits of Inlays and Onlays are:

  • You would be able to retain more of your natural teeth
  • The weaker area of your teeth would get protected
  • They would give your teeth a natural and aesthetic appearance
  • They are stain-resistant and would also protect your teeth from sensitivity

The treatment procedure

The procedure would start with applying local anesthesia. Then the decay would be removed so that it cannot go any further inside the tooth and cause more complications. Once this is complete, dental impressions would be taken so that customized Inlays and Onlays can be made that would fit your teeth perfectly. For the time being, you might be given a temporary filling until the permanent one is ready. To conduct the whole procedure, you would have to visit the clinic twice.

So if you are suffering from toothache or has tooth decay, then contact us immediately. The more you delay, the intense your dental complication would get. We have digital Inlays and Onlays creator which uses technology and dentistry together to make the best-customized equipment. To book an appointment, call us immediately on the given number.
