Restore Your Damaged Teeth With Inlays/Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are restorative services provided at Green Grove Dental in St. Albert that can improve the structure of teeth that have become damaged, chipped, or cracked. They work by bonding to the surface of a tooth and filling in areas of decay or damage. Inlays and onlays can be made from porcelain, gold, or composite resin.
How are inlays/onlays placed at our practice?
Receiving inlays and onlays at Green Grove Dental is a simple procedure that requires only two visits. During the first visit, our dentist will examine the affected tooth to determine if you are a good candidate for this type of restoration. If so, an impression is taken of the tooth and sent to a dental laboratory to fabricate the inlay or onlay. During the second appointment, our dentist will check the fit of the restoration and bond it into place.
What are the benefits of inlays/onlays?
Inlays and onlays are beneficial because they strengthen the affected tooth while restoring its natural shape, size, and function. They can last for many years with proper oral care. Unlike silver fillings and crowns, inlays and onlays require less removal of healthy tooth structure.
Who should consider getting inlays/onlays?
Inlays and onlays are ideal for those with deep cavities or damaged areas that cannot be restored with a traditional filling. They are also a great option for those wanting a more aesthetically pleasing solution than metal fillings since they can be colour-matched to your teeth.
