A dental onlay or an inlay is a way to
give structure back to the tooth
without performing a dental implant.
Or performing another procedure that
might be a bit more invasive.
The inlay or onlay is like a filling. But it
is done in a laboratory. Then it is
bonded to the tooth instead of the
damaged area being removed and filled
in the office.
Inlays and onlays do not weaken the
structure of the teeth. Over time the
teeth will begin to strengthen.
Most people can bear at least 50%
more chewing force than before the
inlays and onlays were placed.
The inlay is performed when the
structure is replaced close to the
tips of the tooth.
Damage that is a bit more extensive
or requires more of the tooth to be
addressed is done with an onlay.
The onlay will usually cover the
entire surface area of the tooth
instead of only certain parts.
A benefit of the dental inlay is
that it doesn't show on the
tooth like a filling would.
It is made to look as natural as
This gives you the beautiful
smile that you desire. And it
usually takes only 1 or 2 visits to
The inlays allow you to chew
once again without worrying
about the tooth breaking.
Inlays can be made of porcelain
or resin that is colored to match
the shade of the tooth.
This will give as natural of a look
as possible so that no one can
tell that there is anything there.
Inlays are also sometimes made
The process of an inlay is often less
expensive than a crown. It is another
benefit of the procedure for those without
dental insurance or those who can't
afford significant work done.
Most inlays can be placed in one
visit unless there are issues with
the lab that would cause a delay.
The dentist can save more of the
tooth with a dental inlay.
An inlay won't expand or contract
when you eat something hot or
cold. This prevents breaking that
might occur with a filling.
The dental onlay is performed
when there is more of the chewing
surface involved and more damage
to the tooth.
Each onlay is made from one of
many materials that are available,
such as porcelain or resin.
The onlay procedure sometimes
takes two visits to the office only
because there is more of the tooth
that needs to be covered.
Each material has a different color.
But the laboratory will get the
onlay as close to the natural shade
The tooth is prepared at the first
visit with molds being taken of the
teeth to create the onlay.
The second visit is when the onlay
is placed. The dentist will examine
the bite to ensure that it's natural
and fitting in the mouth.
A benefit of the onlay is that you can
eat almost anything that you would
with your normal tooth without the
fear of chipping or breaking.
The onlays are easy to clean
and stay true to size on the tooth.
