Inlays and onlays repair the larger chewing surfaces of back teeth and deal with larger cavities. They’re custom made just for you and come in a range of materials. They can be made to match your unique tooth shade, producing a fantastic aesthetic result.
After an examination of your teeth, we can go ahead with the treatment. The procedure is similar to getting a crown; the tooth that needs the inlay or onlay is shaped and an impression of the tooth is taken and sent away to the dental lab. Once we receive it back from the lab, we can invite you back to have it bonded to the tooth. Leave the practice with a healthier smile that looks great.
Regular hygienist and dentist appointments will ensure you don’t need to have countless fillings, inlays and onlays which can become costly and a nuisance. By coming along to routine appointments, any problems can be flagged early and you have the chance to make changes at home before the need manifests. If left untreated, serious decay and wear can lead to extraction; it’s always our aim to avoid this wherever we can.
Restore your tooth: inlays and onlay protect your teeth from further decay and damage. They’re an investment into your long-term dental wellbeing.
Fantastic aesthetic result: inlays and onlays can be made from a number of materials, though we recommend porcelain, as this gives the best result. It’s a material that best mimics the appearance of real tooth enamel.
Curb pain and sensitivity: the need for an inlay and onlay may have been accompanied by symptoms like pain and sensitivity to certain food and drink. After you’ve had treatment, you’ll find this subsides.
Put your mind at ease: if you’ve been worried about tooth sensitivity and pain, it can cause you to feel stressed. In getting it sorted, you can put your mind at rest that your smile is healthy again.
