Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are fabricated in the lab. Inlays act as stronger, more durable versions of fillings, especially when restoring particularly large cavities. Onlays are a way to protect the occlusal surface of a tooth in situations where a full crown is not necessary.

The Benefits

With fabrication of inlays taking place in the lab, the chairside time (time our patients spend actually having dental treatment) is reduced. Inlays are fabricated from porcelain or metal which are extremely strong and durable.

Onlays can provide occlusal protection for the tooth without the expense of a crown. Though not as strong as a crown, in the right situation they can help to restore function, protect root canal treatments, and help to treat and restore the damage from bruxism.

The Process

Our dentist will explain your choices, and the pros, cons, risks and costs involved. Once decided the tooth will be prepared for the inlay or onlay under local anaesthetic. This involves shaping the tooth to be the ideal fit for the inlay or onlay. An impression is then taken of the tooth, the opposite arch, and the interrelationship. These models will be sent to the lab along with shading and design information to help them fabricate your restorations. For the interim you will be provided with temporaries.

Upon return of your inlay or onlay, they will be checked for fit and occlusion and cemented in place. Minor adjustments may be necessary.

The Cost

Fees for inlays and onlays will vary depending on material chosen. We encourage you to meet with our dentist for a consultation, and discussion of your particular needs and treatment costs.

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns are a great solution for teeth that have been broken, or weakened by large fillings, or fractures; and, ridges are a method of replacing a missing tooth by using the adjacent teeth to provide the support.

Inlays & Onlays

Removable Dentures

Removable dentures are a solution to replace missing teeth. They may be placed in a jaw where some teeth remain, or fully replace all the teeth in an arch. They are either an interim treatment in preparation for bridging or implants, or can be the final treatment itself.

Tooth Surface Loss / Bruxism

Tooth surface loss (TSL) can occur due to acid erosion of teeth, abrasion from hard substances – nuts, ice, or aggressive toothbrushing, and attrition-the wear caused by parafunctional tooth contact.
