Inlays & Onlays

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are two types of restorations that your dentist can suggest if you have a cavity in your tooth that needs to be filled. An inlay is a small filling that fits into the biting surface of a tooth while an onlay covers a larger area of the tooth and is better suited to bigger cavities. For many years, gold has been used to make inlays and onlays because it is a hard material and lasts for a long time. Nowadays, tooth-coloured porcelain is also used and gives the restored tooth a more natural look, which many patients prefer.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays can be made in a dental laboratory by a technician, with the help of impressions taken of your teeth. While these are being made, you will wear a temporary filling. When your inlay or onlay is ready your dentist will glue it into place using a special adhesive, after removing the temporary filling.

Dear Mrs Syal

Thank you ever so much for being
  • the best dentist in the world
  • being really gentle
  • just being caring

They (my teeth) are healing up very well. Even though I was scared on Tuesday I managed to get through all of it. That was why I was a bit scared.

You are the best dentist I have ever had! Words cannot thank you enough for the kindness you have shown. Thanks again.
Love from CL
