What Are Inlays and Onlays?
Classified somewhere between a regular filling and a crown, a dental inlay or onlay can effectively treat a damaged or decayed tooth. Used on molars and premolars, a dental inlay covers the indented middle of a tooth while an onlay covers the tooth's upper, rounded edges. Like dental fillings and crowns, onlays and inlays can be made with different materials — metal, porcelain, and composite resin. Dr. Debra Palmer or Dr. Tiffany Smalkoski can help Racine, WI patients better understand crowns, fillings, inlays, and onlays before they make an informed decision about treating their teeth at Creating Beautiful Smiles.
How Do Inlays and Onlays Work?
After applying a numbing cream or local anesthesia to your gums, your dentist will begin by carefully cleaning out areas of decay. Other techniques of sedation may be used if you have anxiety or a strong gag reflex. When the tooth is cleaned, impressions will be produced of your tooth. If you are receiving an inlay or onlay made in a dental lab, a temporary filling will be placed until it is prepared. As soon as your onlay or inlay is ready, Dr. Palmer or Dr. Smalkoski will carefully set and then bond it onto your tooth. They may polish the borders or adjust the fit so your tooth is properly covered and feels right.
