Inlays and Onlays

 

Inlays and onlays are often referred to as partial crowns. They use the existing tooth as a base and fit the inlay or onlay onto the tooth much like a jigsaw puzzle piece. This is done to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and prevent further damage. An inlay is done when there is no damage to the cusps of the tooth and the inlay can be placed right on the tooth. An onlay is used when the damage is a little more extensive.

The decayed area of the tooth is first removed. A digital image of the tooth is then taken with no gooey impressions, gagging or temporaries. On a computer before your eyes a perfect reproduction of your tooth is created and bonded in place all in about 2 hours. Your tooth will look feel and function like a natural tooth. You or anyone else won't be able to tell the difference.
