Inlays are custom-made resin inserts used to fill gaps in the top of teeth. Inlays restore the integrity of the tooth, reduce sensitivity and limit further decay or damage.
Onlays are used to reconstruct damaged or fractured teeth. Perfectly adapted, high-tech dental resin restores the shape and structure of the top part of a tooth.
If you require an Inlay or Onlay, your dentist will begin by treating the damage or removing decay that has weakened the tooth. A local anaesthetic will be used to numb the area around the tooth.
An impression of the tooth will then be taken, which will be used to create a custom-made resin insert.
During your next appointment, your dentist will bond the natural color Inlay or Onlay into place for an effective, aesthetic and durable tooth restoration.
