Advantages of Inlays and Onlays
Listed below are the advantages of inlays and onlays:
Support a bridge
Replace missing teeth
Support upper and lower dentures
The process is similar to that of fabricating a crown. Moulds of your teeth are made for a custom fit. An inlay is prepared if the damage is only present on the top or bite surface of the tooth. If the damage extends to the sides of the tooth, then an onlay is made.
It takes two appointments to apply an inlay or onlay. During your fist visit, the tooth is prepared for the procedure. During the second visit, the filling is secured in place using bonding cement and ultraviolet light.
