What are Inlays and Onlays?
Classified somewhere between a tooth-colored filling and a full crown, an inlay or onlay can fix a decayed or damaged tooth. Used on premolars and molars, a dental inlay covers the concave middle of a tooth, and onlays cover the tooth's upper, rounded edges. Like dental fillings and crowns, inlays and onlays can be made in several materials — porcelain, metal, and composite resin. Dr. Tracy Provenghi can help you better understand tooth-colored fillings, crowns, inlays, and onlays so you can make the right decision about treating your teeth at Awesome Smiles. Contact our El Paso, TX dental facility to arrange an appointment.
How do Inlays and Onlays Work?
After applying a numbing cream to your gums, Dr. Provenghi will start by cleaning out regions of decay. Stronger techniques of sedation can be used if needed. Once the enamel is cleaned, we will take digital impressions of your tooth. As soon as your inlay or onlay is created in our in-house lab, Dr. Provenghi will carefully set and bond it onto your tooth. We will polish the borders or adjust the fit so that your tooth is suitably coated and feels right. If just local anesthesia is used, you will be able to leave following your procedure and get back to your normal activities. You may experience mild discomfort, inflammation, or sensitivity for several days after your onlay or inlay is placed.
