Restore Your Smile To Its Natural Glory With Inlays/Onlays

Inlays and onlays are dental treatments that involve placing a custom-made tooth restoration in the mouth. This restoration, which is available from your dentist at Roseborough Dental in Mississauga, ON, is made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin material, and it can protect your teeth from cavities and decay.

A brief history of onlays and inlays:

Inlays and onlays have been used by dentists for centuries to treat cavities and tooth decay. In the early 1800s, gold inlays were first used to fill cavities in teeth. Porcelain inlays were introduced in the late 1800s and became popular for dental restoration due to their aesthetic appeal. Composite resin inlays and onlays were developed in the 1970s and are now widely used by dentists due to their durability and natural-looking appearance.

What are inlays and onlays?

If you have a cavity, your dentist will likely recommend a filling. But what if the damage is too extensive for a filling? Inlays and onlays are ideal for repairing moderate to severe tooth decay or damage. They can also be used to restore worn-down teeth.  An inlay is similar to a filling and lies within the cusps, or bumps, on the biting surface of your tooth. Onlays are more extensive and cover one or more cusps. Both inlays and onlays are made in a dental laboratory from impressions of your teeth.

What are the benefits of inlays and onlays?

Inlays and onlays are more durable and longer lasting than fillings. They’re also less likely to break, which can lead to further decay in your tooth.
