Inlays and Onlays

Cosmetic and family dentist in Woodbury, NY

In our practice dental inlays and dental onlays are used to repair a very decayed tooth or multiple damaged teeth. Dental inlays and onlays are very strong, create a super tight bond and can last for many years.

DENTAL INLAYS & ONLAYS: THE DIFFERENCE

Dr. Herman chooses to use an inlay or an onlay depending upon how much of your natural tooth is still strong and healthy. A dental inlay fits into the grooves of a tooth and wraps around most of its surface. A dental onlay is used when a tooth is more severely damaged. An onlay covers your tooth’s entire surface.

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH DENTAL INLAYS & ONLAYS

We design dental inlays and dental onlays individually for each patient. They are fabricated from extremely hard and durable materials then bonded onto your tooth. The dental onlay or inlay procedure can protect your teeth for up to 30 years.

Advantages and benefits of inlays and onlays include:

Tooth color – Inlays and onlays are not likely to discolor over time.

Superior fit – This conservative approach preserves as much healthy tooth as possible.

Tight space protection – Inlays are best for sealing teeth to keep out bacteria.

Strength and stability – Inlays and onlays are extremely stable restorative solutions for the treatment of decay.

Tooth structure safeguard – Since the fit is tailored at all edges and preparation is minimal, your tooth will be easier to clean.

Weak tooth protection – An onlay can protect the weak areas of the tooth and the procedure does not require the complete reshaping of the tooth.
