As a cosmetic option for your smile, we offer dental inlays and onlays to help restore damaged teeth at Riverview Dentistry in the Findley Park Area.
Inlays and onlays are fillings that fix broken, misshapen, chipped, asymmetrical, or damaged teeth. They match the original shape of your tooth because they are custom-made. Inlays and onlays look similar to natural enamel.
What is the difference between inlays and onlays?
Inlays and onlays are both custom-made fillings which fit into decayed or damaged teeth. Inlays fit just inside the cusps (or bumps) of a tooth, similar to a composite filling.
Onlays cover more surface area than inlays and also wrap over one or more edges of the tooth.
How will my inlay or onlay be fitted?
Placing both inlays and onlays requires two appointments. During your first appointment, our highly skilled team will remove any decay from your tooth and take impressions to send to the lab where the inlay or onlay will be prepared. At the end of this appointment, a temporary filling will be placed in your tooth. During the second appointment, the temporary filling will first be removed and then your inlay or onlay will be fitted and bonded to your tooth.
