Protect & Repair Your Teeth With Composite Inlays & Onlays
Used to repair damaged teeth, composite inlays and onlays use tooth-matching materials to shield and strengthen teeth that have experienced decay.
At Twin Dental in Edmonton, our team has seen the benefits of these restorations time and time again, and we’d be happy to discuss whether they might be right for you!
What’s the difference between an inlay and an onlay?
Inlays refer to fillings placed inside the cusp tips of your tooth while onlays are placed over one or more cusps of your tooth to provide a stronger restoration.
How are inlays and onlays placed?
Having an inlay or onlay placed requires two appointments at our office. During the first visit, we will take an impression of your teeth, which will be used to create a mold for preparing the restoration. The second visit involves the placing of the inlay/onlay itself after it has been custom-made.
What benefits do they offer?
Along with the fact that they can help prevent further decay and damage to your teeth, these restorations also maintain the integrity of your tooth and can provide a natural-looking appearance. Each option is also very durable and can last for many years with proper care.
Who is a candidate for inlays and onlays?
These restorations are ideal for patients who are experiencing damage that's too significant for a filling but not significant enough for a dental crown. If you have mild to moderate tooth decay, chips, or cracks, inlays and onlays may be the optimal solution for your smile!
