BENEFITS OF DENTAL INLAYS AND ONLAYS
TA great benefit to porcelain dental inlays and dental onlays is their preservation of healthy tooth as they require only minimal removal of a tooth’s surface in order to restore damaged or decayed areas. Not to mention, they have a great fit and will not expand or contract with temperature like metal fillings. Dental inlays and dental onlays are durable lasting longer than any other type of filling.
THE INLAY/ONLAY PROCESS
Typically, two visits are required for the placements of the dental inlays and onlays. In the first visit, Dr. Evans will take an impression of your tooth that he will send to a dental lab to create the permanent dental inlay or dental onlay. Before you leave, Dr. Evans will fit your tooth with a temporary inlay or onlay to keep the tooth protected between visits. During your second visit, the Dr. Evans will remove the temporary protective material and fit your tooth with the permanent dental inlay or dental onlay restoration.
