What are Dental Inlays and Onlays?

Dental inlays and onlays are custom-made indirect fillings that fit precisely into a prepared cavity. They are used when a tooth has suffered damage that requires more than a simple filling but less than a full crown.

Benefits of Choosing Dental Inlays and Onlays

Procedure for Dental Inlays and Onlays

  1. Consultation and Preparation: Your dentist will examine your tooth and prepare it by removing any decay or old filling.
  2. Impression: An impression of the prepared tooth is taken to create a customized inlay or onlay.
  3. Temporary Restoration: A temporary filling is placed to protect your tooth while the final restoration is being fabricated.
  4. Placement: During the second visit, the custom-made inlay or onlay is bonded to your tooth using dental adhesive, ensuring a secure fit and natural appearance.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. Attend regular dental check-ups to ensure the longevity of your inlays or onlays.
