Inlays and onlays are small inserts that are bonded in or on damaged teeth. Inlays and onlays are custom-made from composite, porcelain or metal and are designed to reconstruct and repair damaged teeth.
When the top of a damaged tooth requires strengthening, an inlay is a specially made insert that is bonded into the centre of the tooth.
For teeth that have been damaged or fractured, an onlay can be applied to the exterior of the tooth, reinforcing its strength and limiting further damage.
Your dentist will first administer a local anaesthetic and then begin preparing the tooth to be treated. When all the damaged or decayed parts of the tooth have been removed, a dental impression of the tooth will then be taken.
Your inlay or onlay will then be made by our selected specialist dental lab to exactly fit the space in the prepared tooth. During your next appointment, the insert is positioned and then permanently bonded in place. To complete the tooth restoration, the surface is then smoothed and polished for a comfortable bite and a pleasing aesthetic result.
