Inlays and onlays are categorized as a type of tooth restoration, repairing your tooth to its natural form and utility. Experienced dentists at Old Milton Dental may recommend this procedure if your tooth decay requires more than a filling, but not the extent of a dental crown.
Inlays and onlays cover the biting surface of your tooth. The difference between the two lies in the placement of the material. Inlays are placed in the middle of your tooth. Onlays are required when the entire biting surface or cusps, points of your tooth, need restoration. The benefits that accompany this procedure make it one of the best tooth restoration options.
All inlays and onlays are custom fit. It’s perfect fit and porcelain composition result in a very natural appearance. The porcelain is stain-resistant, eliminating any concerns about discoloration. Threats of discoloration and staining remain minimal because inlays and onlays are easy to clean. Exceptional hygiene can be continued after the procedure. Inlays and onlays are extremely durable, lasting up to 30 years. No other dental restoration maintains this longevity.
