Inlays and Onlays in Eastwood

inlay and overlay illustrationIf your teeth have become damaged or decayed, Eastwood Dental Clinic offers many solutions that may be suitable for you. Our experienced dental team is happy to evaluate your needs and make their best recommendations to maintain your oral health.

When are inlays or onlays needed?

Occasionally, the damage to a tooth isn’t suitable for a filling. In such cases, an inlay or onlay may be ideal for your situation. They repair decay that’s on the chewing surface of a molar. If a tooth has been damaged but doesn’t require a crown or a filling or is old or broken, these may be your best options.

What’s the difference?

  • Inlays. With a custom fit, damage and decay in the rides of the teeth can be repaired.
  • Onlays. With a custom fit, these repair decay and damage that is on two or more cusps of your teeth.

How will you know which one I need?

Each visit begins with a comprehensive examination of your mouth and teeth. Once completed, we’ll have a thorough picture of your oral health and what’s required to maintain it.

What are the advantages of inlays and onlays?

We use a tooth-coloured material for both, so no one will be able to tell them apart from your natural teeth. They’re strong, durable and will last a long time if you practice good oral hygiene habits and stick to your biyearly dental checkups.
