Dental Inlays and Onlays

At Six Twelve Family Dental, our experienced, gentle team offers a broad range of solutions. We can provide for the dental needs of your entire family. Inlays and onlays are a restorative dental option that can protect your oral health.

What are Inlays and Onlays?

If you have a tooth that is fractured, cracked or moderately decayed, inlays or onlays may be the ideal treatment. An inlay fits inside the cusp of a tooth. An onlay covers one or more of the cusps of teeth, covering the entire chewing surface. They are appropriate for teeth that have a good deal of healthy structure left but have too much decay to be covered by a dental filling.

What to Expect

The first step is to have the decay or old filling removed from the tooth. Then, impressions can be taken. An inlay or onlay is fabricated in our laboratory. The materials available include gold, ceramic, porcelain or composite resin. The inlay or onlay is then put into place.

A Long-Lasting Solution

Our patients are pleased to find out that inlays or onlays last a minimum of three times longer than the standard filling. The key is to maintain your good oral hygiene with brushing, flossing and keeping your regular dental checkups. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
