Dental Inlays and Onlays you can rely on

Inlays and Onlays

Recommended for larger cavities where a filling may not be suitable, a dental inlay or onlay is used to repair the tooth’s biting surface and is generally made from a porcelain material which means they are very strong, natural looking and long lasting.

What are Dental Inlays and Onlays?

As their name suggests, an inlay sits in a hole inside the tooth like a filling and an onlay is used to build up the shape of a tooth that has been badly damaged by decay.

Why is having Dental Inlays and Onlays Important?

If decay has built up in a tooth over time, then the area of damaged tooth tissue will have developed into large cavity that will require immediate attention. Without treatment, the decay will continue to grow and spread and could eventually extend into your root canal causing much pain, potential tooth loss and a much more costly treatment plan.

Cleaning and safely filling your large cavity with an inlay or an onlay will therefore help protect your tooth from any further infection and decay.

How long do Dental Inlays and Onlays last?

Made from porcelain, plastic resin or gold, both inlays and onlays can last up to 20 years where oral hygiene is maintained and with regular check-ups to your dentist.

How much do Dental Inlays and Onlays cost?

The cost of dental inlays and onlays treatment will depend on the material used such as porcelain, plastic or gold. When you come in to see your dentist at Green Lane Dental Care, we will talk you through the treatment procedure and associated costs of treatment before any dental work is carried out. Should you have any questions, please always feel free to ask or get in touch prior to your appointment.
