Inlays/Onlays: Less Invasive Than Complete Crowns

cosmetic dental High Point

Restorative dentistry has progressed considerably over the years and there are now several effective ways to repair decayed teeth. In this Crystal Dental Group post, the High Point dentist discusses two similar types of restorations: dental inlays and onlays.

An inlay or an onlay can be a less-invasive alternative to a complete crown and either one is usually more affordable than a porcelain crown procedure.

Inlays/onlays are “indirect fillings,” meaning that they are produced in a lab and placed whole on the tooth. A traditional “direct filling” is applied to the tooth while the material is malleable and then shaped by the dentist.

An inlay is used to repair the surface of a damaged tooth, usually to fill a small cavity or a natural pit that is at risk for decay.

Typically porcelain or composite resin are used for inlays; these materials are durable and look very natural because the color can be matched accurately to the surrounding teeth. An inlay is exactly fitted to your tooth and looks, feels, and functions like the original tooth.

An onlay covers a larger part of the tooth. Because they cover such a large area of the tooth, they are often referred to as partial crowns. Onlays are generally applied to the biting surface of the tooth. Just like inlays, they are accurately fitted to the damaged part of the tooth. Composite resin and porcelain are also the main materials used to create an onlay. As mentioned before, inlays and onlays serve an essential role in restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
