Restore And Strengthen Your Smile With Inlays & Onlays!

Inlays and onlays are highly effective treatments for repairing damaged teeth at Olde Town Dentistry in Conyers. These restorations offer strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal, making them a good option for individuals seeking long-term dental solutions.

What are inlays and onlays?

Inlays and onlays are custom-made restorations for repairing teeth with moderate to severe decay or damage. They are typically crafted from high-quality materials such as porcelain, composite resin, or gold. Inlays are designed to fit inside the cusps of a tooth, while onlays extend beyond the cusps to cover a larger area. These restorations are fabricated in a dental laboratory based on impressions taken from your teeth.

How are inlays and onlays placed?

During your first visit, our dentist will remove the damaged or decayed tissue from the affected tooth and take an impression of it. This will be sent to a laboratory, where a custom restoration will be made. Meanwhile, a temporary filling will protect the tooth until the next appointment. At the second visit, we will remove the temporary filling, carefully place the permanent inlay or onlay, and bond it to the tooth with dental adhesive. We will match the natural color and shape of the surrounding teeth and ensure a snug fit. Once the restoration has been bonded, we will polish it to give it a smooth and natural-looking finish.

What are the benefits of inlays and onlays?

Unlike dental crowns, inlays and onlays require minimal removal of healthy tooth structure. They are fabricated from high-quality materials, offering exceptional strength and durability. The materials used can match the color and shade of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking smile. With proper care, inlays and onlays can last for many years.
