Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that resort a mildly decayed or cracked and fractured rear teeth. The damage done to the affected teeth is usually mild such that the patient doesn’t need a crown.

Candidates that are eligible for an inlay an onlay procedure at Miami usually have a tooth decay or damage that cannot be corrected by a dental filling. However, the affected tooth is still healthy such that the patient doesn’t need a crown. With this, the dentist at Miami can conserve a great percentage of your original tooth structure.

Inlays and onlays have other benefits compared to fillings:

Inlays and onlays are used when there is need for removal or replacement of old fillings. A dental inlay resembles a filling and fits the inside of the top edges of your tooth. An onlay on the other hand is very extensive and covers the cusps of the affected tooth.

How is the treatment done?

During treatment, the dentist at Miami will administer local anesthesia, and then take off the old fillings. He or she will then take your tooth impression and send it to the dental lab. This impression serves as the mold from which the new inlay and onlay is made. The new dental onlay or inlay may be made from gold, composite, or porcelain resin material. On your next appointment, your new inlay and onlay are fixed. At Advanced Family Dental, Miami dentists take great care to ensure that the new inlay and onlay blends perfectly with the treated tooth and your entire dentition, giving your mouth a uniform, natural appearance.
