Your dentist, Dr. , is thrilled to offer dental inlays and onlays at York Dental. These strong, reliable, and natural-looking restorations can help you restore the health and function of your tooth. To tell you a little more about these restorations, our dental team is happy to share some details.
A dental inlay repairs the space on the top of the tooth. However, it only repairs between the cusps on the center of the tooth’s surface. A dental onlay is just like a dental inlay, but it repairs more of the tooth. It can fix more cusps than an inlay and it can even restore the entire tooth’s surface. It can also branch out to repair the edges of the tooth.
Dental inlays and onlays are often used when old fillings need to be removed or replaced or if the decay is too extensive for a filling but not quite extensive enough for a dental crown. These restorations are custom made for you and your smile. Your dentist will make impressions of the tooth, send those impressions to a dental lab, and wait for technicians to make your inlay or onlay. When the restorations are ready, they will be sent to our office and bonded to your tooth.
