Inlays & Onlays
Custom-Made Inlays & Onlays Rebuild Your Valuable Smile
Inlays and onlays are a custom-made restorations that fall somewhere between a traditional filling and a custom-made dental crown. Commonly referred to as “partial crowns,” Dr. Thomas Dolan and Dr. Brendan Dolan are likely to recommend them when moderate dental decay and/or injury are present on a tooth.
So what’s the difference between the two? Inlays are able to fit in-between the cusps of the tooth, while onlays are typically needed when the damage is more significant and coverage over multiple cusps is necessary. The creation process typically requires two to three appointments, including one visit to prepare the tooth and take impressions and another to cement the finished product in place.
Because inlays and onlays directly bond with the dental structure, they strengthen your tooth‘s overall shape and restore its ability to function!
