What are Dental Inlays?

Dental inlays can be made of numerous materials. They provide a sturdy and durable alternative to fillings by replacing the damaged or decayed part of a tooth. Inlays are stronger than fillings and are specially used to restore the chewing surfaces of molars as well as the front teeth.

Let us help you with Dental Inlays

Inlays are used in between the cusps of a tooth, as opposed to onlays, which sit on the tooth and build up the tooth’s shape.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between inlays and fillings?

A filling is the most basic dental restoration for minor tooth decay, wherein restoration material such as silver amalgam, porcelain, or composite resin are fitted on prepared tooth to cover the damaged tooth and stop further breakdown and tooth loss. A dental inlay, meanwhile, is for slightly larger cavities. An inlay is prefabricated as a single, solid piece to fit the shape and size of the cavity. To secure it, dental bond is used.

What is the difference between inlays and onlays?

An inlay is used to fill a cavity inside the crevices between tooth cusps. Meanwhile, an onlay is a restoration that fills at least a tooth cusp to restore the chewing or biting surface’s look and function.

Should I get a crown instead of an inlay?

The goal of dental restoration is to preserve as much of your healthy tooth as possible. However, if a large part of your tooth is seriously decayed, inlays or onlays may not be enough. Dental crowns are used for these cases when decay is more serious and a larger part of your tooth needs to be removed due to damage.

What material is best for inlays?

Porcelain inlays are the most commonly utilised. They have the least chance of easily discolouring and it has the most similar look and strength to real teeth.
