Inlays and Onlays
 

Inlays and onlays are often referred to as partial crowns. They use the existing tooth as a base and fit the inlay or onlay onto the tooth. This is done to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and prevent further damage. An inlay is done when there is no damage to the cusps of the tooth and the inlay can be placed right on the tooth. An onlay is used when the damage is a little more extensive.

The decayed area of the tooth is first removed during the procedure. At most dental offices, a mold of the tooth is then taken and sent to a dental lab. They create a restoration made from porcelain, gold, or a composite resin. The restoration takes about 2-3 weeks to make, so a temporary inlay or onlay will be placed on the tooth for that time. During your next visit the inlay or onlay will be placed into your mouth and set with cement. Your tooth will look natural and you or anyone else won't be able to tell the difference.

 HOWEVER, we recommend onlays and inlays created with Cerec technology.  More accurate  and completed in just one appointment, these restorations are actually less expensive than laboratory fabricated restorations.  The savings occurs because because no $200 lab fee is charged and the savings get passed to the patients.  Please view the photo gallery, and remember, the finished products were all finished in one dental appointment.
