Before you visit your Gosnells dentist, learn the basics of dental treatment. In this way, you’ll have a glimpse of what to expect and a chance to prepare any questions you might have.
Inlays and onlays have the same purpose as dental fillings and dental crowns. They are used to repair a tooth, usually, one damaged by infection or breakage.
Unlike dental fillings, which are constructed directly inside the mouth during your appointment, inlays and onlays are first made in a laboratory before being fitted to the tooth.
Advantages of Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays have the following advantages:
- Minimal tooth enamel removal
- Longer-lasting compared to dental fillings
- Do not deform and move around unlike dental fillings when exposed to thermal changes
- More stain-resistant compared to other restorations
Inlay and Onlay Procedure
Getting an inlay or onlay for your tooth usually takes two dental appointments. Once your dentist has evaluated that you are an ideal candidate for the treatment, the affected tooth is prepared.
The decayed portion of the tooth is removed, and the tooth is properly cleaned. Your Gosnells dentist takes an impression of the tooth to be sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication. A temporary restoration is attached in place to cover the tooth while your inlay or onlay is being manufactured.
During your second appointment, the finished inlay or onlay is bonded and fitted into place.
