Restore the Beauty of Your Smile
Inlays and onlays are generally used when a tooth is fractured or corroded and has not lost too much of its structure for it to be restored or doesn’t need the added support of a tooth crown. This type of dental restoration works better on minimal to moderate dental deficiencies.
Inlays and onlays are made from porcelain materials, which when fused together with current teeth will closely resemble the organic teeth, giving a remarkably natural look.
The difference between an inlay and an onlay restoration is its size. Inlays has to be inserted in the middle of a tooth extending from the front of the tooth to the back. The onlay can be utilized just like the inlay, however, it is much more widespread covering more affected area and able to envelop broken sections of a tooth.
Inlays and onlays are indirect restorations or indirect dental fillings. The advantage of using an indirect filling is that during preparation, a smaller amount existing tooth structure will have to be removed and the restorations are built to fit firmly within the existing framework of the tooth.
