What are inlays and onlays?
An inlay is designed to just repair the very central part of a back tooth whereas an onlay is a bit bigger, repairing one or more of your tooth raised points. Your inlay or onlay can be made from a variety of different materials that include composite resins, porcelain or gold.
What is the procedure?
With an inlay or onlay, we only need to remove a minimal amount of tooth structure when preparing your tooth. The inlay or onlay is then made to fit exactly into the cavity and is bonded into place, creating a strong and hard wearing restoration enabling you to chew without fear of the tooth cracking or chipping.
What types of inlay and onlay are there?
Our high-quality porcelain and composite resin inlays and onlays will blend in beautifully with your natural tooth colour, creating a restoration that is virtually invisible. However, sometimes we may suggest you have a gold inlay or onlay as this is extremely strong and hard wearing whilst being very kind to your opposing teeth as it will wear down at a similar rate to your natural tooth enamel.
