Dental Inlays & Onlays

When a tooth has a cavity or damage that is too extensive for a standard dental filling, but not severe enough to warrant a full dental crown, inlays and onlays provide an ideal solution. Dr. Sinan Abdulkadir offers these essential dental restorations at Top Rated Dentistry, which are designed to repair and strengthen damaged or decayed teeth.

Inlays are used when the damage is contained within the cusps (the pointed areas) of the tooth, while onlays, also known as partial crowns, cover a larger portion of the tooth, including one or more cusps. These custom-crafted restorations are made from durable materials such as porcelain, ceramic or composite resin, ensuring both strength and aesthetics. The procedure typically involves preparing the damaged tooth, taking an impression, placing a temporary filling, fitting and bonding the custom restoration and making final adjustments for fit and appearance.

One of the significant advantages of inlays and onlays is their ability to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible, making them a minimally invasive option. They are bonded to the tooth, providing added strength and preventing further damage.
