Inlays and Onlays

Benefits of Dental Inlays and Onlays

Procedures that are often used instead of crowns or fillings are dental inlays and onlays. They are used on the teeth located toward the back of the mouth. Inlays or onlays are placed over teeth that have suffered from some decay. They can also be placed on teeth that have suffered damage from cracking or fracturing. However, serious cracks or breaks are usually better resolved with the use of dental crowns.

Distinct Benefits

There are a few advantages inlays and onlays have. Firstly, they are versatile and can be used to treat tooth decay, tooth loss or tooth sensitivity. Some of the other benefits includes:

  • Being able to match the natural teeth color for inlays or onlays so they are not noticeable
  • They do not change in shape to respond to temperature changes like metal fillings
  • The procedure will not require further damage or loss to the teeth
  • Inlays and onlays can add strength to the tooth rather than weaken it

Basic Application

Inlays and onlays are constructed in a lab. Your dentist will need to make a mold of your teeth. He will prepare your teeth during one visit and then bind them to the teeth during the next.

Properly aligned teeth not only give you a beautiful smile, but they can significantly improve your overall dental health.
