This restorative treatment is used to repair damaged or decayed teeth that need more than just a filling, but not enough to need a crown. Dentists place these gold, composite, or porcelain materials on the inside and outside surfaces of a tooth.
Onlays and inlays are less expensive and aggressive than full crowns. They are considered to be a safe and ideal method for repairing damaged or decayed teeth. Find out if an onlay/inlay is right for you by calling Platinum Dental Care Lehi today!
What makes an onlay different from an inlay?
Onlays and inlays are essentially the same thing, however, an onlay is specifically used to cover the cusp or “bump” of a tooth while an inlay’s purpose is to fill the area between those cusps. Inlays typically cover less surface area of a tooth than an onlay.
When Should I Consider
- Onlays/inlays are safe tooth restoration
- They are less likely to stain or become discolored
- Each of them only requires two appointments
- Both inlays and onlays seal your teeth, further preventing future bad bacteria
