Inlays/Onlays Can Support A Weakened Tooth

At Dentistry at Bridlewood in Ocala, FL, we know that dental inlays and onlays can provide reliable and durable support to a tooth that needs more restoration than a filling but does not yet require a dental crown.

What are inlays and onlays?

Typically made with gold, porcelain, or composite materials, an inlay is a custom-made restoration placed between the cusps of a tooth, while an onlay is a customized restoration that fits over one or more cusps of a tooth.

What benefits do these restorations provide?

In addition to the fact that Inlays and onlays provide your damaged tooth with structural support while helping protect it from further decay, because materials can be matched to your exact tooth shade, they can also provide a natural-looking effect. Moreover, each of these restorations has the potential to last for many years when cared for diligently!

Is everyone a candidate for an inlay or onlay?

Many patients who require a reliable and durable restoration are likely to be candidates for these restorations. However, they may not be suitable for patients who regularly grind and clench their teeth, develop cavities easily, and/or have certain medical conditions. Patients considering an inlay or onlay are invited to contact our office for a thorough consultation and examination to determine their candidacy for care.
