Inlays and Onlays are the same as partial crowns. If the tooth is partially decayed or chipped, in order to restore it back and strengthen the tooth, we recommend Inlay or Onlay estimations. Inlays and Onlays are made of porcelain or metal like gold. This process take 2-3 weeks in two visits. After removing the decayed or chipped tooth we take an impression of the remaining tooth structure and send it to dental lab. The laboratory fabricates the Inlays and Onlays.
An inlay is similar to a filling, but it lies within the cusps (bumps) on the chewing surface of your tooth. An onlay is larger than an inlay. It replaces one or more decayed cusps.
Inlays or onlays can be made of gold, composite resin (plastic) or ceramics. They can last for 10 years or longer. How long they last depends on:
- The material used
- The teeth involved
- The forces of chewing
- How well you maintain them with good oral hygiene and regular visits to a dentist
