Restore and Strengthen Your Teeth with Inlays and Onlays

Comprehensive Evaluation

Before recommending Inlays and Onlays, our experienced dentists will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your tooth and oral health. We will assess the extent of the damage or decay and determine if Inlays and Onlays are the most suitable treatment option for preserving your natural tooth structure.

Customised Restoration Design

Inlays and Onlays are custom-made restorations designed to fit precisely into the prepared cavity or on the biting surface of the tooth. Our dental professionals will take precise impressions of your tooth to ensure that the inlay or onlay matches the shape, size, and color of your natural tooth, providing a seamless and natural-looking restoration.

Conservative Tooth Preparation

To accommodate the inlay or onlay, a minimal amount of healthy tooth structure will be removed. This conservative approach preserves as much of your natural tooth as possible, providing a strong foundation for the restoration.

Temporary Restoration

While your permanent inlay or onlay is being fabricated in a dental laboratory, we will provide you with a temporary restoration to protect your prepared tooth. This temporary restoration will maintain the tooth’s functionality and aesthetics until the final restoration is ready for placement.

Precise Placement of Inlays and Onlays

Once your custom inlay or onlay is ready, our team of Private dentist in Dumfries will ensure its precise placement. We will check the fit, bite alignment, and aesthetics to ensure that the restoration seamlessly blends with your natural teeth. The inlay or onlay will be permanently bonded to your tooth, providing long-lasting durability and strength.

Benefits of Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and Onlays offer several advantages, including:

  • Preserving Natural Tooth Structure: Inlays and Onlays are conservative restorations that allow us to save as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.
  • Enhanced Strength and Durability: Inlays and Onlays are crafted from high-quality materials such as porcelain or composite resin, providing strength and durability comparable to natural teeth.
  • Longevity: With proper care and regular dental check-ups, inlays and onlays can last for many years, ensuring the longevity of your restored tooth.

Maintenance and Oral Hygiene

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for the longevity and health of your inlays and onlays. Our dental professionals will provide you with instructions on how to care for your restorations, including proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits. By following these guidelines, you can maintain optimal oral health and prolong the life of your inlays and onlays.

nlays and onlays are dental restorations used to repair damaged or decayed teeth. They are custom-made to fit the specific shape and size of the cavity or tooth structure being treated.
Inlays and onlays are a middle ground between fillings and crowns. They are more extensive than fillings but less invasive than crowns. Inlays are used when the damage is within the cusps of the tooth, while onlays cover a larger portion of the tooth, including one or more cusps.
Inlays and onlays can be made of various materials, including porcelain, composite resin, or gold. The choice of material depends on factors such as the location of the restoration, aesthetic preferences, and the biting forces exerted on the tooth.
The lifespan of inlays and onlays depends on various factors, such as oral hygiene practices, biting forces, and the material used. With proper care, they can last for many years, often longer than traditional fillings.
Inlays and onlays are designed to match the color of your natural teeth, making them blend in seamlessly. Porcelain and composite resin restorations can be made to closely resemble the appearance of natural tooth enamel.
Placing inlays and onlays typically involves two visits. During the first visit, the damaged or decayed tooth structure is removed, and an impression is taken to create a custom restoration. On the second visit, the restoration is bonded to the tooth, providing a durable and natural-looking result.
