Inlays and onlays restore tooth function, shape and stability. They are also known as partial crowns, because your natural tooth is the base and the inlay or onlay covers the tooth. We want you to smile with confidence again!
What It Is
Inlay procedures are placed on top of your natural tooth and used when the edges of your teeth are damaged. However, an onlay is required when tooth damage is more severe.
During the treatment process, we will remove the decayed center of your tooth. Then, we will take a template of the tooth and transfer it to our laboratory. The goal is to construct an entirely new inlay or onlay composed of gold, composite resin, or porcelain material. Since the construction takes approximately 2-3 weeks, we will provide you with temporary inlays and onlays. Lastly, your inlay and onlay will be cemented into its corresponding place.
