If you're considering a dental inlay or onlay, you may be wondering how they can benefit your smile.

Inlays and onlays are made of strong, durable materials that can help to strengthen your teeth and protect them from further damage. Unlike amalgam fillings and dental crowns, placing these restorations requires that less of a patient's healthy tooth structure be removed. In addition, inlays and onlays can also help improve the appearance of a patient's smile by perfectly blending in with their natural tooth colour.

When is a dental inlay or onlay recommended?

When a molar or premolar has too much damage for a filling but not enough to necessitate a dental crown, an inlay or onlay can offer an ideal solution. Inlays are placed on the chewing surfaces of these teeth while onlays cover one or more cusps. Each of these restorations can also be used to restore a tooth that has been fractured or chipped.

How long do these dental restorations last?

Inlays and onlays typically last for many years with proper daily oral care and regular checkups. However, they may eventually need to be replaced due to wear or damage.
