Understanding Inlays & Onlays

Posted on 2/22/2021 by Sean Saghatchi
Understanding Inlays & OnlaysA cracked or a broken tooth can make you restless. While bones can heal on their own, your teeth need to be looked at by our professionals immediately in case they undergo any damage. Based on how severe the damage is, we may recommend getting a dental crown, inlays, or onlays.

All of these procedures fall under the restorative dentistry treatment. They are created using custom-made forms to help provide complete functionality and improve the aesthetic appeal of your mouth. A lot of people wonder what the difference between an inlay and an onlay is.

What Are Inlays and Onlays?

An inlay is the filling between two teeth that helps cover the damage. This filling is used for a chipped tooth and in between two teeth to fill the gap. Just like the name suggests, it is used between two teeth.

An onlay is used to cover the biting surface. This could be a partial or complete cover to go around the tooth. As the name suggests, an onlay is used on your tooth.

Benefits of Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are immediate restorative solutions. They are non-invasive and effective. The technique has been around for a long time and is becoming a more popular choice because not only does it help to heal your tooth, but it also provides functionality.

Inlays and onlays are designed using a resin material or porcelain. It matches your tooth color irrespective of where the damaged tooth is. You no longer have to worry about your smile being compromised in any way. This dental procedure is more affordable as compared to other dental procedures available.

Our professionals always recommend inlays and onlays for minor teeth issues. Not only is it quick to fix but the results are durable and beautiful. To learn if you need inlays, onlays, or a crown, please call us to book an appointment.
