Dental Inlay / Onlay

Inlay / Onlay dentaire
  • Onlays and Inlays are known as indirect dental restorations.Unlike traditional dental fillings, these are made outside the mouth.
  • Onlays and inlays offer you a more conservative approach and save the maximum of your tooth structure. 
  • Onlays and inlays are reserved for larger cavities that cannot be restored by usual fillings but are not big enough to consider a crown.
  • Whereas onlays are recommended when a tooth’s cusp has been involved, and it needs added reinforcement.

About Dental Inlay / Onlay

The process for an Inlay/Onlay is as follows:

The procedure starts with a complete oral examination which also includes taking relevant x-rays. Next step is to identify the decayed teeth and if the tooth decay is significant and cannot be restored with a straightforward filling, the inlay or onlay will be the best procedure to consider.

Firstly we need to clean the decayed part of the tooth/teeth and then  take a dental impression of your upper and lower teeth.

This impression will serve as a guide for your onlays and inlays.

After completing the first steps together with you, the dentist is choosing the color that matches your natural look. All this being done,  all the details are sent to the laboratory so that the final piece can be made.

After receiving the final piece it’s time to check the fit, and once approved from medical and aesthetic point of view it’s time to fix the final piece with the help of bonding agents and finish to ensure a natural sheen.
