Inlays & Onlays in Forestville

At Forestville Family Dentistry, we are dedicated to preserving your natural teeth and enhancing your oral health through tailored restorative treatments. Dr. Grados and our skilled team specialize in providing high-quality inlays and onlays, offering a restoration alternative to fillings when a larger area of a tooth is damaged or decayed.

What are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are custom-made dental restorations used to repair rear teeth with mild to moderate decay or damage. They are also an ideal solution for restoring teeth that are cracked or fractured if the damage is not severe enough to require a crown.

  • Inlays: Fit within the grooves between the cusps of a tooth.
  • Onlays: Cover one or more cusps or the entire biting surface of a tooth.

Both options are crafted from durable materials such as porcelain, composite resin, or gold, providing longevity and strength while matching the natural color of your teeth.

Benefits of Choosing Inlays and Onlays

Opting for inlays and onlays at Forestville Family Dentistry brings several advantages:

  • Durability: Made from strong, hard-wearing materials that can last up to 30 years with proper care.
  • Aesthetics: Seamlessly blend with your natural teeth for a flawless finish.
  • Preservation of Natural Tooth: Less invasive than crowns, allowing for more of the natural tooth structure to be preserved.
  • Improved Oral Health: Tight custom fit helps maintain hygiene and prevents further decay.

Our Process

  1. Consultation and Evaluation: Dr. Grados will thoroughly examine your teeth and discuss the best treatment options for your dental health.
  2. Tooth Preparation: The affected tooth is gently prepared to make space for the inlay or onlay.
  3. Impression and Creation: An impression of your tooth is taken and sent to a dental lab where your custom inlay or onlay is crafted.
  4. Fitting and Adjustment: Once ready, Dr. Grados will fit the inlay or onlay, making any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.
  5. Bonding and Polishing: The inlay or onlay is securely bonded to your tooth and polished to a smooth finish.
