  Ceramic Work - Onlay / Inlay

An inlay is similar to a filling and lies inside the cusp tips of the tooth. They are custom-made to fit the prepared cavity and are then cemented into place. An onlay is a more extensive reconstruction that covers one or more cusps of a tooth. Onlays are indicated in situations where a substantial reconstruction is required. However, more of the tooth structure can be conserved compared to the placement of a crown.
To repair damage to the tooth’s biting surface, rather than using a simple filling, or a crown, a dentist will often use an inlay, or an onlay. Inlays and onlays can be made from porcelain, gold, or composite resin, although porcelain is now becoming the material of choice because of its strength and potential to match the natural color of your tooth.

To repair damage involving over of the tooth’s biting surface, rather than using a simple filling, or a crown, a dentist will often use a porcelain inlay or onlay.
An inlay is similar to a filling and lies inside the cusp tips of the tooth; an onlay is a more extensive reconstruction that covers one or more cusps of a tooth. 
Inlays and onlays are both traditionally made of gold; however, now, porcelain is becoming the material of choice because of its strength and potential to match the natural color of your tooth.

Inlays and onlays are applied in two dental visits. At the first visit, your old filling, or decay, is removed, and the tooth is prepared for the inlay / onlay. Our dental specialist will then make an impression of the tooth, and send this impression to our dental technician.  This impression will be used by our technician to construct, a porcelain inlay / onlay that will fit exactly into your tooth. At this time our dental specialist will place a temporary sealant on your tooth and schedule a second appointment

At the second visit, your temporary sealant is removed. Our dentist will then ensure that the inlay / onlay fits properly in the tooth and does not interfere with your bite. Once correctly fit, the inlay / onlay is bonded into the tooth with a strong bonding resin, and polished smooth.

Typically fillings can reduce the strength of the tooth by up to 50%. Inlays and onlays, however, because they are bonded directly into the tooth with special resins, can actually increase the strength of the tooth by up to 75%; as a result, they can last from 10-30 years, and in some cases, provide a good alternative to a crown.
