Inlays

When the cavity is large, an inlay is needed for strength. These restorations a fabricated by a dental lab and usually require a second appointment at the office for insertion.

An inlay is similar to a filling and lies inside the cusp tips of the tooth. They are custom-made to fit the prepared cavity and are then cemented into place. An onlay is a more extensive reconstruction that covers one or more cusps of a tooth. Onlays are indicated in situations where a substantial reconstruction is required. However, more of the tooth structure can be conserved compared to the placement of a crown.

The dentist will make an impression of the tooth, and send this impression to a dental laboratory. This impression will be used by the laboratory to construct a custom-made porcelain, or gold inlay . At this time the dentist will place a temporary sealant on your tooth and schedule another appointment.

At the next visit, the temporary sealant is removed. Your dentist will then ensure that the inlay fits properly in the tooth and does not interfere with your bite. The inlay is then bonded into the tooth with a strong bonding resin, and polished smooth.

Inlays can successfully achieve both esthetic and functional results in restoring discolored or metal posterior teeth. More conservative than full crown.
