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.
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.

The staff made me feel comfortable during my procedure. Thank you
I am a new patient and had a great experience from start to finish with Advanced Smiles. From the initial call to schedule my cleaning to the appointment itself, I found the staff to be kind, welcoming, knowledgeable, and thorough. My hygienist was efficient and skilled with the cleaning and Dr. De Paoli was equally great. He has perfect bedside manner and welcomed any and all questions. Moving from out of state, the office had no issues with processing an unfamiliar insurance plan and proactively offered additional cost saving options. A+++ experience. Thanks!
Very ended and nice doctor and staff.
