Inlay/Onlay Restorations

An Inlay/Onlay is an indirect restoration consisting of a solid substance gold, or tooth-colored porcelain.  It is made by a professional dental laboratory and is permanently cemented into the tooth by your dentist.

Inlay/Onlay Restorations

Inlays/Onlays can be utilized to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma. 

Inlays/Onlays are an ideal alternative to conventional silver and composite fillings.

Also, they are more conservative than crowns because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation of inlays/onlays.

What are Dental Inlays & Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are custom-crafted restorations that fit precisely within or over a damaged tooth, unlike traditional fillings. They are made from durable materials like porcelain or gold, offering several advantages:

  • Strength & Durability: Inlays and onlays reinforce the tooth, often lasting 10-30 years compared to 5-7 years for fillings.
  • Natural Appearance: Porcelain inlays and onlays blend seamlessly with your existing teeth for a natural-looking smile.
  • Improved Function: They restore the original shape and structure of the tooth, allowing you to chew comfortably.
  • Preserves Tooth Structure: Inlays and onlays remove minimal healthy tooth structure compared to crowns.

 

When are Inlays & Onlays Used?

Inlays are ideal for repairing moderate tooth damage to the cusps (raised chewing surfaces). Onlays are used for more extensive damage, covering one or more cusps.

 

The Inlay & Onlay Process at Horizon Dental Care:

  • Consultation: Our dentists discuss your needs and examine your tooth to determine if an inlay or onlay is the right choice.
  • Tooth Preparation: We carefully remove any decay or old fillings and prepare the tooth for the restoration.
  • Impression & Fabrication: We take an impression of your tooth to create a custom inlay or onlay in a dental lab. A temporary restoration is placed.
  • Placement & Bonding: During the second visit, we remove the temporary restoration and carefully bond the inlay or onlay to your tooth for a strong, secure fit.
