Onlays & Inlays:



Inlays are similar to fillings but the entire work lies within the cusps (bumps) on the chewing surface of the tooth.

Onlays are more extensive than inlays, covering one or more cusps. Onlays are sometimes called partial crowns.


Benefits of Dental Inlays and Onlays
 

  • Increase the strength of a tooth with respect to fillings
  • Alternative to an crown when teeth damage is not extensive
  • Porcelain inlays/onlays does not change color over time
  • Gives better esthetic appearance compared amalgam fillings

Types of Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays can be made of porcelain, gold, or Lab-Processed composite resin. Porcelain inlays mimic enamel's translucency and color, making them attractive choices for patients. Gold alloy inlays and onlays possess greater durability. Lately, however, evolvement of Lab-Processed Composite seems to be a great choice as they became more durable and Esthetically pleasing.
 

 

Tooth Color Filling ( Composite):

 

Tooth Colored Fillings

In the past, teeth were most commonly repaired with amalgam (Silver + Mercury) fillings or gold restorations, but most people don't want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look. Thanks to advances in modern dental materials and techniques, your teeth can be restored with a more aesthetic and natural appearance.

Rather than using ugly silver fillings, which ultimately weaken back teeth, we use tooth colored resin fillings. These restorations are strong, minimize the amount of tooth which must be ground away, and look natural and incredible, as can be seen in these pictures above.
