Inlays and onlays are used to restore severely decayed or damaged teeth. These restorations have many advantages and enable your dentist to preserve more of your natural tooth’s structure than with fillings or dental crowns.
Keep reading to discover why inlays and onlays may be the best treatment for you.
Preserve Tooth Structure
In order to fit inlays and onlways, your dentist will need to remove the damaged tissue before treatment can begin. The amount of tissue removed is far less than with a dental crown as more tooth needs to be removed in order to accommodate the crown restoration.
Strength & Durability
Your standard, everyday composite fillings generally last around 5 years. Inlays and onlays are specially crafted from porcelain, making them especially strong and durable, giving them a lifespan or 20-30 years if cared for properly. Inlays and onlays are also more aesthetically appealing.
Inlays and onlays are often used to repair old amalgam fillings that have become unsightly and ruin the appearance of your teeth. Porcelain inlays and onlays are shade-matched to your teeth so that they seamlessly blend in with your surrounding teeth and are practically undetectable. They are also stain-resistant, so you know overtime they won’t become discoloured.
