Restore A Beautiful Health-Looking Smile With Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays have emerged as highly effective and reliable options at Woodland Lakes Dental in Orlando and Alafaya. These restorative procedures address various dental issues while providing long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing results.
What are inlays and onlays?
Dental inlays and onlays are custom-made restorations used to repair damaged or decayed teeth. They are typically made of porcelain, composite resin, or gold. Inlays are designed to fit within the tooth’s cusps, while onlays cover a larger portion of the tooth's surface, extending over one or more cusps. These restorations can be a great solution when a tooth requires more than a simple filling but does not necessitate a full dental crown.
How are inlays and onlays placed?
Our dentist prepares the damaged tooth, takes impressions, and places a temporary restoration. The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory, where the custom inlay or onlay is fabricated. At the second appointment, the temporary restoration is removed, and the permanent inlay or onlay is bonded securely to the tooth, providing a seamless fit and natural appearance.
What issues do inlays and onlays address?
Inlays and onlays can address moderate tooth decay, large cavities, fractured teeth, and worn-down or damaged fillings. They provide structural support and restore the affected tooth's strength, function, and appearance. By preserving the natural tooth structure as much as possible, inlays and onlays offer a conservative and minimally invasive alternative to more extensive dental procedures.
What are the benefits of inlays and onlays?
Inlays and onlays provide durability, longevity, and resistance to staining, ensuring a lasting solution. They help preserve healthy tooth structure by bonding directly to the tooth. Inlays and onlays are aesthetically pleasing, as they can be color-matched to the tooth’s natural shade.
