Dental Inlays & Onlays

Dental Inlays & Onlays

Do you suffer from cracked, chipped or damaged teeth? With inlays and onlays from Back Bay Family Dentistry in D’Iberville, your damaged teeth can be a thing of the past! If your tooth is not damaged enough to warrant a crown, an inlay or an onlay may be the perfect restorative dental option for you.

What Are Dental Inlays & Onlays?

Unlike fillings, which can reduce the integrity of your tooth, inlays and onlays actually increase the integrity of your tooth structure. They can be made of various materials from porcelain to metal, depending on your preference. If you have damage that is too large for a filling to fix, but not extensive enough for a dental crown, inlays and onlays are the perfect option. They will be bonded to your existing tooth to protect it from further damage and provide a more visually appealing smile.

How Do I Get Inlays & Onlays?

The first step to getting your new inlays or onlays, is contacting Back Bay Family Dentistry in D’Iberville and scheduling an appointment with either Dr. Parker or Dr. Miner. You will first be examined and any tests necessary will be performed; after, your dentist will discuss your various inlay and onlay options and choose the best route for you. At your dental visit you can expect:

  • The filling or damaged area will be removed.
  • The damaged tooth will be prepared for the inlay or onlay.
  • An impression will be made to create your customized dental inlay or onlay.
  • The onlay or inlay will be tested for fit/appearance.
  • Your dental onlay or inlay will be bonded to your tooth and polished.
