Inlays and Onlays

Got cracks or fractures on your teeth that cannot be corrected with filling? Don’t worry. You don’t need major corrective procedures for these problems. Cracked teeth that don’t need a crown can be restored easily with dental inlays and onlays.

Rear teeth suffering from moderate decay can also be repaired using inlays and onlays.

Who should get inlays/ onlays?

If one or more of your teeth have suffered damage that cannot be fixed with a filling, you are a candidate for inlays and onlays. Keep in mind that, your tooth should be sufficiently healthy to get inlays. The inlay technique allows the dentist to conserve the original tooth structure of the patient to a great extent.

Benefits of inlays and onlays

  • They are good at resisting biting forces.
  • They also last longer and fit snugly.
  • Since they can be cleaned easily, they help you maintain better oral health.

The procedure

Inlays are usually fitted over two visits. During your first visit, our dentist will take impressions of your teeth and mouth. We will also fit your tooth with a temporary inlay or onlay to protect it from infection. The permanent inlay is fitted during the second visit. If you’re happy with the looks of your teeth and have no problem with your bite, the dentist will bond the inlay to the teeth and give it a polish.

If your teeth are badly damaged, you will most probably require crowns. Inlays and onlays are conservative choices that are suggested when the damage is to your back tooth.

We are located in North Beach and our clinic is also accessible from Carine, Watermans Bay, Sorrento, and Marmion. Our inlays are made of high-quality composite resin and porcelain. Since they blend well with the colour of your natural teeth, they manage to create an invisible restoration. Book an appointment with us to learn more about how we can help you.
