Inlays and Onlays

Let’s chat about a cool way to give your smile a little TLC without going all out with caps and crowns. Ever heard of inlays and onlays? They’re like the middle ground between fillings and the more extensive stuff. Crafted in a dental lab, these gems come in gold, porcelain, or resin to suit what you’re looking for and blend seamlessly with your vibe. Inlays snug right into the center of your tooth, while onlays are the cool cousins that cover a bit more ground, including those toothy peaks. We bond them onto your teeth, making sure they match perfectly, so it’s like nothing ever happened! Perfect for keeping your smile in tip-top shape.

Did you know…

When your tooth is playing up, but it’s not quite time to roll out the red carpet for a dental crown, inlays and onlays could be your tooth-saving heroes! Think of them as the trusty sidekicks when a regular filling just won’t cut it. These custom-fit wonders snugly cover your tooth, blending in like they were always meant to be there. Whether we’re talking porcelain, gold, or resin, they’re designed to mimic your tooth’s natural look and feel, keeping things running smoothly in your mouth. Plus, they’re superstars in durability, often outshining traditional fillings with their longevity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate for an inlay or onlay?

If you’re dealing with a tooth that’s seen better days but isn’t quite ready to be crowned king (or queen) of your mouth, an inlay or onlay might just be the superhero you need. It’s the perfect middle ground for those not-so-great, not-so-terrible tooth troubles. Why not pop in for a chat and let us take a closer look? We can figure out together if an inlay or onlay will be your smile’s new best friend.

What should I expect when I get my inlay or onlay restoration?

Let’s chat about giving your tooth the glow-up it deserves with an inlay or onlay restoration. Think of it as a mini makeover for your smile, spread out over a few chill visits. First up, we’ll get your tooth ready for its close-up and take a quick impression—kinda like its first selfie—to craft its new look. Don’t worry, we won’t leave your tooth feeling underdressed; it’ll rock a temporary outfit while we perfect the permanent one. Then, when everything’s just right, you’ll swing by, and we’ll swap the temp for the real deal, bonding it securely so your smile is all set to dazzle. Easy-peasy and totally worth it!

Do I need to follow any post-treatment care guidelines?

Alright, let’s talk about giving your temporary restorations the VIP treatment they deserve. Think of them like a delicate but super important guest in your mouth – you wouldn’t want to upset them with sticky or hard snacks that could send them packing before their time, right? But hey, once we’ve rolled out the red carpet for your permanent inlay or onlay, it’s back to business as usual. You can dive back into your favorite foods and get cozy with your toothbrush and floss again without a worry. It’s all about keeping that smile of yours shining bright and healthy!
