Inlays & Onlays In Mt. Eliza

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and on-lays are often referred to as partial crowns. They use the existing tooth as a base and fit the inlay or on-lay onto the tooth. This is done to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and prevent further damage.

An inlay is done when there is no damage to the cusps of the tooth and the inlay can be placed right on the tooth. An onlay is used when the damage is a little more extensive.

  • The decayed area of the tooth is first removed during the procedure.
  • A mould of the tooth is then taken and sent to a dental lab.
  • The laboratory creates a restoration made from porcelain, gold, or a composite resin.

The restoration takes about 2-3 weeks to make, so a temporary inlay or onlay will be placed on the tooth for that time. During your next visit the inlay or onlay will be placed into your mouth and fixed to your tooth.

Your tooth will look natural and, you (or anyone else) won’t be able to tell the difference.
