Inlays fit into the grooves of a tooth and an onlay is pre-moulded to cover the cusp of a tooth when damage is more severe. Restoring teeth in this way is less invasive than a crown.
First, the tooth has to be prepared and shaped before the inlay or onlay is positioned. A digital impression is taken so that a precise restoration can be created to match the tooth.
At Hampden Dental & Aesthetics Clinic, we have reduced the need for standard impressions and use the latest digital technology. During the wait for the inlay or onlay to arrive, a temporary filling is placed to seal the cavity from further decay and prevent any sensitivity.
It usually takes up to two appointments to remove any decay and prepare the tooth. Once impressions have been taken and the inlay or onlay is ready, then it is bonded to the tooth using a local anaesthetic if needed.
Composite, ceramic and gold materials are used to create inlays and onlays.
