Onlays / Inlays
Inlays and onlays restore your teeth to a healthy, natural-looking smile. Is more than half of your tooth missing or damaged? If so, a filling may no longer be the best treatment option to save your tooth in ways that improve your smile. In this case, your Vancouver dentist assesses the tooth for a dental inlay, an onlay or a crown.
What are dental inlays/onlays?
An inlay or onlay is a restoration made of strong ceramic to fit your tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a conservative tooth preserving restoration that are custom made in a lab to match your tooth enamel and provide a longterm fit over your tooth. Strong ceramic is used, allowing your experienced Vancouver dentist to leave more of the healthy tooth structure intact. This cosmetic dentistry procedure requires two appointments. The first visit includes cleaning out any decay and old filling, taking impressions of the tooth and creating a temporary restoration. Your inlay/onlay is ready for your second appointment in two to three weeks.
The Process: From Assessment to Restoration
When you choose Westcoast Smile Dental Studio for your inlay or onlay procedure, you’re opting for excellence and precision. Our cosmetic dentistry procedure typically involves two appointments, both aimed at delivering a smile that you’ll be proud to show off. During your first visit, we will meticulously clean out any decay and remove old fillings. We’ll then take impressions of your tooth to ensure a perfect fit for your inlay or onlay. To maintain your smile’s aesthetics while your customized restoration is being created in the lab, we’ll provide you with a temporary restoration.
Within two to three weeks, your exquisite inlay or onlay will be ready for your second appointment. During this visit, we will seamlessly place the restoration over your tooth, enhancing both its functionality and appearance. With the craftsmanship of our dedicated dental team, you can be confident that your new restoration will blend harmoniously with your natural teeth.
