Inlays and Onlays in

If you have a tooth with moderate damage or decay, and inlay or onlay may be the right restoration for you. Inlays and onlays are used to restore teeth that have suffered too much damage for a traditional filling, but not enough to warrant a full dental crown.

Inlays and onlays are a highly effective restoration for moderately damaged or decayed teeth. They are custom-made from composite resin or porcelain materials. Inlays and onlays are also known as indirect fillings because unlike traditional fillings, they are custom-made outside of the mouth. Inlays are used when the damage is only in the middle of the chewing surface; whereas onlays cover at least one of the points or cusps of a tooth. The process of placing an inlay or onlay begins with the tooth being cleaned and the damaged or decayed portion being removed. After that, digital images or impressions will be taken of the tooth. These images or impressions will be used to create your custom restoration. The final step involves placing the inlays or onlay and bonding it to your tooth.

The advantages of restoring your tooth using inlays or onlays:

  • Strong and durable
  • Do not contract or expand with temperature changes
  • Tooth-colored and natural-looking
  • Can replace old metal fillings
  • Prevent the need for more extensive treatment later

-I was Recommended by a long time friend that works there (Selena) as she knew I was struggling to find dental care that was affordable but I also have a fear of getting work done. The facility is extremely clean and the staff was super nice. I have difficult work that needed to be completed and they were so patient with me it made me feel very comfortable. Highland Oaks will be my preferred Dentistry from now on!
