Inlays and Onlays

An Inlays is a small filling that fits into the biting surface of a tooth.

An onlay covers a larger area of the tooth and is better suited to bigger cavities.

For inlays and onlays, gold was traditionally used for this type of restoration. However, in recent times, tooth color resistant porcelain has become a more popular material choice. This is a more aesthetic way to restore teeth and creates a more natural looking smile.

When we consider the options to preserve even a single broken tooth, we use a conservative philosophy in our approach. Fortunately, modern dental materials open doors to rebuild teeth to full strength less invasively than ever before.

 

Sometimes teeth undergo significant damage due to cavities

heavy bite forces, trauma, or even normal functioning. Many situations can leave teeth in danger of loss if treatment is bypassed. While teeth may need to be fully “capped” with a dental crown, some smaller fractures can be perfectly formed back to health with an onlay. A crown requires a little more tooth preparation while onlays allow the unbroken portions of a tooth to be left uncut. A custom piece of porcelain, like a partial crown, is bonded to the damaged area.

Onlays blend seamlessly with the natural enamel and enhance both function and appearance. When the most conservative option fits your treatment plan, Dr. Cabrera may suggest an onlay for ultimate restoration.
