What Are Inlays and Onlays?
Classified between a dental filling and a crown, inlays and onlays can treat a damaged or decayed tooth. Used on molars and premolars, a dental inlay covers the indented middle of a tooth and an onlay covers the tooth's rounded, upper edges. Like dental fillings and crowns, inlays and onlays can be made in a variety of materials — metal, porcelain, and composite resin. Dr. Ernest De Paoli can help Frisco, TX patients understand tooth-colored fillings, crowns, inlays, and onlays so they can make the best choice about treating their teeth at Advanced Smiles.
What Are the Benefits of Inlays and Onlays?
Inlays and onlays at Advanced Smiles in Frisco, TX are conservative and long-lasting dental restorations for damaged or decayed teeth. They offer several benefits, including:
- Preserves a larger portion of the natural tooth structure compared to traditional dental crowns
- Offers durability and longevity
- Resists staining and discoloration, maintaining a natural appearance
- Minimizes the risk of further decay or damage by sealing the tooth
- Provides a less invasive alternative to full dental crowns
- Enhances the overall strength and integrity of the tooth
- Restores a comfortable and functional bite
- Blends seamlessly with the natural teeth
How Do Inlays and Onlays Work?
After applying local anesthesia to numb your gums, Dr. De Paoli will start by cleaning out areas of decay. Stronger techniques of sedation can be used if you have anxiety or a strong gag reflex. Once the enamel is cleaned, impressions will be made of the tooth. If you are receiving an inlay or onlay made in a dental lab, a temporary cover will be placed until it is prepared. Once your onlay or inlay is ready, Dr. De Paoli will carefully place and then bond it to your tooth. He will polish the edges or adjust the fit so that your tooth is suitably coated and feels right.
