Important Information about Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are dental appliances that are usually fitted onto teeth located in the back of the mouth. These teeth can be worn down over time. When damaged teeth cannot be repaired with fillings, inlays and onlays may be a good alternative. An inlay is used to repair damage to the cusp of the tooth. In circumstances where the cusp of the tooth needs to be reconstructed, an onlay is used. If the patient requires it, a single onlay can be used to cover the surface of multiple teeth. Dr. Robertson offers his patients inlays and onlays made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, gold, or a composite material that matches the shade of the natural tooth.
The Procedure Involved with Inlays and Onlays
Most patients will have to visit our Borger, TX, office twice for inlays and onlays. During the first visit, Dr. Robertson will make an impression of the problem teeth. That impression will then be sent to a dental lab, where your custom-made inlays or onlays will be created. During your second visit, Dr. Robertson will apply a bonding agent that will permanently adhere your new inlays or onlays to your natural teeth.
How to Know if You’re a Good Candidate for Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are very effective at resolving some dental problems, but whether or not they’re right for you will probably be determined by the location of the affected teeth in your mouth and how severely damaged your teeth are. Dr. Robertson will help you decide whether or not you’re a good candidate for inlays and onlays.
