Inlays And Onlays

Inlays & Onlays

Dental inlays and dental onlays are made of a composite, tooth-colored material, and are typically used to restore a tooth with severe decay, cracks, or fractures. An inlay is typically used to repair damage inside the top edges of a tooth, while an onlay is used for larger areas of decay or damage and extends over the edges, providing a larger area of protection.

Why Dental Inlays & Onlays?

For patients with extensive decay or damage, a dental filling may not be an adequate restoration option. In other cases, the damage may not be significant enough to warrant a crown placement. Opting for an inlay or onlay will allow your Katy dentist to perform the restoration without compromising the structural integrity of your tooth.

Benefits of Dental Inlays & Onlays

Dental inlays and dental onlays can have various benefits over traditional fillings or crowns, including:

  • Extremely durable; when taken care of inlays and onlays can last up to 30 years.
  • Inlays and onlays can provide 75% of added strength to the affected tooth.
  • The restorations protect teeth from additional decay or damage and can prolong the life of your tooth.

The procedure for placing dental inlays and dental onlays at our Katy dental practice to repair decayed or damaged teeth requires only two appointments with our dentist.
