What are Inlays and Onlays?

Onlays and inlays are considered Indirect Fillings, which means that they are customized to fit the specific size and shape of a cavity or where the tooth has active decay. Inlays and Onlays are usually used on premolars and molars. They are placed when the tooth has too much damage for a simple filling but not enough damage to need a crown. The difference between an inlay and an onlay is that it depends on how much of the tooth they cover and which parts of the tooth needs protection.

What to Expect When Getting Inlays and Onlays

  1. The first step the dentist will take is putting a local anesthetic to numb the area.
  2. Then, the dentist will remove the decayed area of the tooth.
  3. The dentist will then take impressions of the teeth so that either the inlay or onlay will have the perfect fit to your tooth. The impression will be sent out for the permanent inlay or onlay to be made, while the temporary one will be made in the office.
  4. The next step will be to schedule a second appointment to fit your permanent inlay or onlay and cement it to the tooth.
  5. The last step is to shape and polish to make sure that the inlay or onlay is the perfect fit and looks like the natural tooth.

Common Concerns

Is the process of getting inlays and onlays painful?

How long do inlays and onlays last?
Inlays and onlays should last for many years with proper oral care. Make sure that you attend your general checkups and cleaning to ensure that the inlays and onlays are in perfect condition and last for many years.
