Inlays

Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays are a strong, and long lasting solution to restoring a damaged or decayed tooth’s biting surface.

Inlays are performed when the cusp of the tooth is not damaged. As they require little tooth structure to be removed, inlays can be successfully bonded directly to the biting surface. Generally made from porcelain, composite resin or gold, inlays are bigger than fillings and smaller than crowns. They are constructed prior to being fitted, and then bonded to the damaged tooth.

An onlay is a more extensive form of reconstruction, which is required when the damage is over more than one of the tooth cusps, and therefore an inlay won’t suffice.

Dental inlays and onlays have the same effect, and the procedures are typically completed over two dental visits. Call us on 024 76 686 690 for more information on how dental inlays and onlays can be used to restore your teeth back to their natural appearance and strength.

Patient questions

What is the difference between an inlay and a crown?

An inlay is designed just to fit across and protect the surface of the whole tooth. Unlike a crown which is fitted over the tooth to protect it from further damage, inlays leave more of the natural tooth intact.

Wisdom tooth removal.

I had my lower wisdom tooth removed. To say that I was a nervous patient was an understatement. The dentist was very understanding and explained the process in stages where I could ask questions. Even though I was really panicking inside the staff had a true sense of calm and the tooth removal was quick and uneventful. I originally wanted sedation but felt confident to go without. The aftercare information was very useful. I experienced a first class service here!
