DENTAL INLAYS AND ONLAYS

Just the right solution for stronger teeth

Is your tooth suffering from cavities and tooth decay? Dental inlays and onlays from Dentistry of Orlando might resolve the problem. You’re probably more familiar with the common solutions like fillings or crowns. Fillings are used to fill in small cavities while crowns are made for deeper or larger fractures. But what if fillings are too small while crowns are too big for your dental problem? 

Our dental inlays and onlays present just the right solution for tooth decays that neither fit fillings nor crowns. It’s a more conservative approach to tooth restoration than full crowns. This procedure is used to repair rear teeth that have mild to moderate tooth decay, or for cracked teeth where the damage does not warrant a dental crown. 

Want to know if dental inlays and onlays are right for you? Consult Dr. Marc Chapkis today.

BENEFITS OF DENTAL RESTORATION

Why go for tooth inlays and onlays?

At Dentistry of Orlando, we make sure you get the restorative dental solution that suits your needs. We use porcelain, composite resin, and sometimes gold to create inlays and onlays. Inlays refer to those procedures where the bonded material is limited to the center of the tooth, while onlays refers to those procedures where the bonded material extends further to one or more cusps of the tooth. Patients who go for this procedure enjoy these benefits:

Frequently asked questions

Dr. Marc Chapkis will perform a dental examination to determine if an inlay or onlay is the best solution. He will also check where the inlay/onlay has to be placed. In some cases, the dentist may need to remove older filling material before the procedure can be done. Most patients who are good candidates for an inlay or onlay can have the procedure safely done in the clinic at their earliest convenience.
Since inlays and onlays are more durable and last longer, it will cost more than a regular filling. The exact cost will depend on several things such as the material being used and how much damage the tooth has suffered.
