More info

Inlays and onlays are used when a cavity is large but the surrounding tooth is healthy. Instead of reducing the healthy tooth to fit a crown, inlays are made from porcelain, gold or resin. An inlay sits in a hole in the tooth and an onlay sits on the tooth to build up its shape. Inlays are very strong and, in some circumstances, may be more durable than ordinary fillings. Most commonly used materials for inlay and onlay are porcelain, gold and plastic.

Treatment procedure

1. At the first appointment your Hundental dentist will determine whether the tooth can be repaired by an inlay or an onlay procedure or other teratment needed. Then the dentist removes the old filling or decay and makes a mould of the tooth.

2. A temporary filling is placed to protect the tooth while the laboratory uses the mould to make the inlay or onlay.

3. On the next visit, the temporary filling is removed and the inlay or onlay glued in place.

After the treatment you can feel a bit discomfort or sensitivity to cold or hot foods. These problems will break off within two to four days.
