What Are Inlays And Onlays?

Inlays and onlays have the same purpose as dental fillings and dental crowns. They are usually used to restore a tooth damaged by decay. The three treatments differ as to when they are the best choice for you.

Inlays and onlays are used when the decay or cavity is too large for a dental filling, but isn’t so damaged it requires a dental crown.

Unlike dental fillings, which are directly moulded unto the tooth during your dental appointment, inlays and onlays are first fabricated in the laboratory before fitted to the tooth.

What Is The Difference Between Inlays And Onlays?

There isn’t a big difference between the two. The materials used are the same and the application process is similar. The only difference is:

Inlays fill the space in between the cusps of the damaged tooth, or at the centre of the tooth.

Onlays cover one or more cusps or the entire biting surface of the tooth. They are also used when the damage is greater.

Benefits Of Dental Inlays And Onlays

Inlays and onlays have the following benefits:

Same Day Inlay and Onlays Procedure

Getting an inlay or onlay for your tooth takes just one appointment. Once your dentist has established that you are an ideal candidate for the treatment, the target tooth is prepared.

The decayed parts are removed, and the tooth is thoroughly cleaned. Your dentist will take an impression of the tooth, fabricate the inlay or onlay, and bond and fit it into place.
