Inlays & Onlays

Used to restore and repair teeth, the inlays and onlays we recommend at Dublin Dental Associates are custom made of tooth colored porcelain material. Inlays are used to repair teeth that are damaged by decay or trauma and are often used to replace old silver fillings. Replacing silver fillings with tooth colored material can dramatically change the look of your smile.

Often referred to as partial crowns, onlays are identical to inlays but used when the chewing cusps of teeth have been affected.

Inlay and onlay procedures generally require two separate appointments. At the first appointment your dentist will remove any old filling material, clear away any decay or debris and prepare the space for restoration. We will take impressions of the teeth involved to be used to create the custom inlay. A temporary filling will be applied while your inlay is made by a dental laboratory.

During you second appointment we will cement your inlay into place. If needed, we’ll make a few adjustments to ensure that your bite is comfortable. As with all dental restoration, good daily oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits are important to the success of this treatment.
