An Inlay or Onlay is a porcelain filling (either part or full) bonded into place to protect the tooth from chewing.
Inlays and Onlays are custom made in our lab by our technicians to fit into or over the tooth. They are used when there is insufficient tooth structure to support a directly placed filling.
This is carried out over two appointments.
- Prepare the tooth, take impressions and place a temporary inlay
- The permanent porcelain Inlay or Onlay is bonded to the tooth.
Inlays, Crowns & Veneers are an inexpensive way of repairing your teeth.
With the modern materials we use there will be no way of spotting your treatments.
Which is the best treatment for me? This depends on the tooth and the degradation of the tooth. During an initial consultation we will recommend an appropriate course of treatment for you
Is there any long term maintenance required? No, however we do recommend a regular dental hygiene appointment to ensure longevity in your treatment as well as regular oral health checks with the dentist.
