Restore Teeth with Dental Inlays & Onlays
When more than one-third of a tooth’s biting surface is damaged, a dental inlay or onlay can be an alternative to a full dental crown. Inlays are slightly smaller than onlays, replacing only the areas in between the cusps of the tooth, while onlays replace at least one cusp as well. These custom pieces, often made from porcelain, offer these benefits:
- Preserves more of the natural tooth structure.
- Matches the color of your teeth better.
- Strengthens the teeth they are bonded to.
- Creates a stronger, more stable solution.
When Are Inlays & Onlays a Good Option?
When it comes to dental inlays and onlays, there are different types available. You can choose from gold, porcelain, or composite materials that are molded to repair damaged or decayed teeth. We use dental inlays and onlays for tooth restoration when:
- A complete dental crown is not necessary.
- Your tooth is too damaged for a filling.
- The healthy part of the tooth can be saved.
- A stronger, more stable solution is needed.
Unique Characteristics of Inlays & Onlays
|Dental inlays and onlays are also known as partial crowns and indirect fillings. When compared to full crowns, they are typically a less-expensive option.|
|Dental inlays are installed in the center of the tooth while dental onlays are installed on almost all surface areas of a tooth.|
|Composite inlays and onlays are made up of acrylics and ground glass-like materials. They tend to be more cosmetically comfortable than metal materials, and they don’t discolor the teeth.|
|Metal inlays and onlays are normally made with gold and placed on rear teeth, such as molars, due to their durability.|
|Porcelain dental inlays and onlays are a popular option as they are the most consistent when it comes to matching the color of your other teeth.|
