Dental inlays or onlays are a choice restorations when a tooth is only partially damaged or decayed. A tooth filling may not provide adequate protection and if the damaged tooth is not severe enough to warrant a new dental crown, then dental inlays and onlays may be the ideal restorative solution.
They are used to restore the back teeth and have long lasting results as well as looking as natural as the rest of your teeth. A dental inlay is used within the cusp of the tooth similar to where a tooth filling is placed and a dental onlay is used to treat a tooth that requires more external restoration.
Our dentists will begin the treatment with a local anaesthetic and then prepare the damaged tooth for either the inlay or onlay. If the tooth has an old filling, this will be removed before the restorative treatment commences.
Dental inlays and onlays are durable and use a hard-wearing material which can match the colour of your original teeth. Your dentist will ensure the inlay or onlay fits perfectly before a finally cleaning and polishing.
