Could Your Oral Health Be Improved with Inlays or Onlays?

Posted on 12/20/2018 by Dr. Janice Pliszczak
Could Your Oral Health Be Improved with Inlays or Onlays?If your tooth sustains damage, an inlay or onlay may be recommended in order to correct the problem and restore the original structure and function. By better understanding your options, you can find the restoration that is right in your mouth.

When Should You Choose an Inlay?

A dental inlay is a pre-molded filling that fits into the groves of a tooth without extending over the cusps. If you sustain oral damage, a dental implant might be a good option or even an alternative to a regular filling. They are especially useful for fractured, decayed, or broken teeth where the cusp of the tooth is not impacted. If the damage is so extensive that a large dental filling could weaken the remaining structure, an inlay could be a benefit.

When Should You Choose an Onlay?

A dental onlay is used to repair a tooth that has extensive damage affecting the tips or cusps of the tooth. Onlays strengthen the teeth and provide an attractive cosmetic appearance, and both ceramic and porcelain options are available. Onlays can also be stained to match the rest of the surrounding teeth.

Inlays and Onlays Are a Conservative Approach to Dental Restorations

Regardless of whether you need an inlay or only, these are conservative approaches to dental treatments, and they offer a wealth of benefits. Both inlays and onlays offer a superior fit, and they can match the exact color of your natural teeth. They make it easy to clean the teeth and preserve the maximum amount of remaining tooth structure. They are also extremely stable and can protect weakened teeth.
