Inlays & Onlays

Inlays & Onlays

When a tooth has suffered from the damage of decay it’s important that it is treated as soon as is possible. With early treatment comes the potential for being able to preserve much of the natural tooth.

Delaying treatment for tooth damage and decay can lead to the need for root canal treatment. It can also potentially lead to the total loss of the tooth.

Keep in mind that routine checkups with your dentist, along with those annual appointments to clean your teeth, will be able to identify any cavities and other damage in its early stages. Prevention truly is better than a cure when it comes to oral health care.

What are inlays and onlays?

Get results you love

There are occasions where the decay or damage to a tooth may be too extensive to be treated with a simple filling, but not quite extensive enough to need the full-coverage of a crown. In these types of situations, the best option for tooth restoration may be to consider dental inlays or onlays.

Inlays and onlays are larger fillings that are made in the laboratory using tooth-coloured porcelain instead of composite material. An inlay replaces the central chewing surface of a back tooth, but an onlay will replace a larger area which includes the central chewing area plus one or more of the cusps

What are inlays and onlays used to treat?

Dental inlays and dental onlays are used as a restoration solution for teeth that have mild to moderate damage or decay. Simple cavities can be filled using composite material, and they are typically done in one visit to the clinic.

Getting porcelain inlays and onlays is a two-stage process that involves waiting for the porcelain restorative piece to be milled.

What options are there?

Typically there are just a few options for a tooth that has sustained decay and damage.

  • When a filling is not enough to resolve the damage, a full-coverage crown may be used. This is not always the ideal solution as there is a steep cost difference when you compare onlays vs crowns.
  • Remember that if the decay and damage are not treated in a timely manner, you may be facing the need for root canal treatment or the complete loss of the tooth once the decay has progressed too far.
What is the procedure for getting inlays and onlays?
dental-inlays-dublin There are two stages to the process of getting inlays and onlays, which differs from a routine filling. The damaged tooth and the surrounding gum will be numbed so that patients feel little to no discomfort during the procedure. A mould will be taken from an impression of your damaged tooth. This will then be used as a guide for a cast. The cast is used to produce the inlays or onlays. The second stage will involve the fitting of the inlay or onlay. Your dentist will check the fitting before securing the porcelain inlay or onlay in place with a bonding material. Your dentist will make any minor adjustments and polish the tooth so that it looks completely natural.

And also got implants and bridges done by Crown Dental. The staff is very helpful and professional. The environment is very relaxed, you don't feel going to the dentist 🙂 . I always recommend the clinic to my friends.

  • I just had a visit with Dr Joanna today for a routine clean and to ask about veneers . during the consultation she noticed something more sinister with an infection that's been going on for over 15yrs . she was so informative,caring and really listened to all my questions and worries. most dentists I find are just there to make money but I found wirh joanna that she really wanted to help and not rush into veneers when there was concerns with my gums I may have a longer road then expected but I know I'm in good hands 🙏

  • I would highly recommend. As someone who hates the dentist and put off going for years, I can say that going to Crown Dental is probably the best dental experience I've ever had. I am a very nervous patient, but Dr. Joanna is a brilliant dentist who really put me at ease.

  • I was very lucky to come across Crown Dental 8 years ago. While other dentists were offering extremely complicated and unaffordable treatments, Erika came up with a much simpler and affordable solution to my issues. I have been going to Crown Dental all these years and have got all my dental work done there: crowns, extractions, cleanings and check-ups... I would definitely recommend Erika and her team in Crown Dental to anyone looking for a top quality, reliable and friendly dentist.
