Repair Damaged Teeth With Inlays/Onlays
At Summit Heights Dental in North York, we know the importance of a healthy smile. We’re proud to provide inlays and onlays as restorative options to treat your teeth.
What are inlays/onlays?
Inlays and onlays are two types of dental restorations. Inlays lie within the cusps, the pointy parts of your teeth, while onlays extend over one or more cusps. They can be made from porcelain, gold, or composite resin.
What oral issues can inlays/onlays correct?
Inlays and onlays correct dental issues such as cavities, decay, fractures, or chips. They can also be used to replace old amalgam fillings.
What are the benefits of having inlays/onlays?
Inlays and onlays are more durable and longer lasting than traditional fillings. In addition, they restore the tooth to its original shape, which helps prevent further damage or decay. They also provide a natural-looking finish to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth, giving you a beautiful smile!
What is the procedure for receiving inlays/onlays?
Receiving inlays and onlays is a straightforward process. Our dental team will prepare the tooth, take an impression of the affected area, and send it to a lab for fabrication. Once ready, our team will bond the restoration to your tooth. This process typically takes two visits to our office.
How long do inlays/onlays last?
Inlays and onlays can last many years, depending on how well you care for them. Regular brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups with our dentist will help ensure they last as long as possible.
Who should consider getting inlays/onlays?
Inlays and onlays can be good solutions for anyone who needs to repair their teeth or restore missing tooth structures. They provide a durable and natural-looking result that can improve the health of your smile.
