What Are Inlays and Onlays?
Classified somewhere between a tooth-colored filling and a full crown, an inlay or onlay can restore a damaged or decayed tooth. Used on molars and pre-molars, an inlay covers the indented middle of a tooth while onlays cover the tooth's rounded, upper edges. Like dental crowns and fillings, onlays and inlays can be created with a variety of materials, such as metal, porcelain, and composite resin. Before they decide how to treat your teeth at Bright Young Smiles in Lighthouse Point, FL, Drs. Jared and Catherine Young can help you gain a better understanding of crowns, fillings, onlays, and inlays.
What to Expect from Inlays and Onlays
After applying local anesthesia to numb the treatment area, we will begin by cleaning out areas of decay. Other methods of sedation can be used in case you experience fear or a strong gag reflex. When the enamel is cleaned, impressions will be made from the tooth. Once your restoration is ready, we will carefully set and then bond it on your tooth. We will then polish the edges or adjust the fit so your tooth is properly coated and feels right. You might feel mild discomfort, inflammation, or sensitivity for several days once your inlay or onlay is placed. Please contact Bright Young Smiles should you have any concerns following your treatment. With proper care and maintenance, it should last for many years before needing to be repaired or replaced.
