Dental Inlays and Onlays
For a more conservative approach to teeth restoration, dental inlays and onlays can often be used. Typically used for rear teeth, this procedure allows for the repair of damaged teeth without the usage of crowns. Inlays and onlays have several benefits as a restorative option:
-They can create a natural and uniform appearance
-Fit comfortably with no follow-up appointments needed
-Long lasting and durable
-Minimal preparation/surface removal required
What to Expect
Inlays and onlays will require more than one visit in the sense that we need to send some impressions out first to the lab for creation. We will place a temporary inlay or onlay on the tooth to protect it in between visits.
After we receive the final inlay or onlay from the lab, Dr. Youngs will place it on the tooth to form a lasting bond.
