Dental inlays and onlays target the back teeth, providing extra support and strength to molars which have been damaged by decay or trauma.
Inlays and onlays can also be used to replace old silver fillings. They are often chosen as the favoured treatment option when a tooth requires extra support but is not damaged enough for a crown as, unlike crowns, natural teeth do not require extensive preparation prior to the placement of an inlay or onlay.
At Etwall Dental Practice, our dental team will advise you on why you may benefit from this treatment and its need.
A dental inlay is fitted within the cusps (corners) of a natural tooth, while a dental onlay is bonded over a tooth’s cusps. The latter provides extra support and strength and is used when a tooth is more damaged.
If you require an inlay or onlay, this will be made specifically for you in our laboratory. You have the option of resin, gold or porcelain restorations.
