About the Procedure
Inlays and Onlays in Brampton
Crowns vs. Fillings vs. Inlays / Onlays
Fillings work well for small cavities (holes) in the teeth. However, larger gaps caused by tooth decay that runs through the center of a tooth or damage the top of a tooth sometimes require a stronger restorative solution. Because inlays and onlays are created at a dental laboratory and custom-fitted to your tooth, the result is a durable, partial restoration that will strengthen the natural tooth. The end result is a perfectly-fitted option that doesn’t require a full crown but is more robust than a simple filling.
What to Expect from the Procedure
The procedure to apply an inlay or an onlay often takes more than one appointment. During the first visit, we’ll clean up and prepare the damaged tooth. Then we’ll take an impression of your teeth for the dental lab where highly trained professionals will use modern dental technology to create a custom-fitted inlay or onlay, depending on your needs. During the second visit, we will fit the partial restoration to your tooth, ensuring your bite is comfortable and even before cementing it in place.
