Do You Need an Inlay or an Onlay For Your Teeth?

Posted on 6/21/2021 by Front Desk
Do You Need an Inlay or an Onlay For Your Teeth?Are you looking for a way to maintain your dental hygiene while brightening your smile? If so, you can rejuvenate your smile and protect your teeth at the same time by getting Inlays and Onlays. Commonly referred to as partial crowns, inlays and onlays are a form of restorative dentistry for those looking to repair certain damage to their teeth. Onlays can repair severe damage to your teeth, while inlays can be a great alternative to metal filings. There are several reasons you might need an inlay or onlay for your teeth.

Brightening Your Smile

As much as there are several ways to brighten your teeth, it can sometimes be challenging to get rid of a yellowing smile. With onlays made out of durable materials like porcelain and resin, we can easily replace damaged or decayed portions of your teeth. Resin and porcelain onlays will bring a long-lasting and true white to your smile, something that can be difficult to achieve with other methods.

Solution to Damaged Teeth

While onlays take care of severe damage on the cusps of your tooth, Inlays are special fillings that address cavities and other dental damages. Both inlays and onlays are cemented on your tooth, providing a permanent solution to the damaged area. This is because they are not easily moved, no matter the amount of pressure exerted on them. Furthermore, they create a tight seal on your teeth that prevents further infection, damage, and inflammation. This is due to the fact that materials used to make onlays and inlays are long-lasting and scratch-resistant. Your teeth will enjoy strong protection that guarantees good dental health. You will also experience no cases of gum disease and other common dental infections like tooth decay. Visit our offices for more information on the benefits of inlays and onlays.
