What Dental Inlays & Onlays Are Used For

Dental inlays and onlays are used when old fillings need to be removed or replaced because they are chipped, broken or have leaky cracked margins on the old restorations

If one uses a magnifying glass or takes a picture in close range of these restorations, it will show indications of leaky margins or cracked restorations. Leaky margins are often the first step in breaking down of a restoration

The damage is easily restored with Porcelain Inlays and Onlays. These are lab processed porcelain pieces, which are fabricated using CADCAM technology. The inlays and onlays are then cemented in with resin cement, which provides adequate strength for the restoration from fracturing and also prevents Marginal leaks and decay.

    How It’s Done

    The dental inlay and onlay procedure is usually performed in two phases requiring separate visits to your New York dental clinic. The first visit will consist of your dentist taking a full impression of your tooth so a clear and detailed outline can be made. The impression will then be sent to the lab so that your permanent inlay or onlay can be created. In order to protect your teeth between your two visits, a temporary inlay or onlay will be placed over the tooth. When you go for your second visit, the protective material will be removed and the permanent inlay or only will take its place.
