Inlays and onlays are dental restorations used to repair and restore teeth that are damaged or decayed. If a tooth’s damage is not extensive enough to require the use of a dental crown, our knowledgeable dentist may recommend an inlay or onlay. Dental inlays and onlays in Ocoee, Florida are often created from porcelain. Porcelain ensures a restoration that is both aesthetic and long lasting. In order to restore the health of the damaged tooth, Dr. Baaqee will first remove the injured or decayed portion of the tooth. She will then clean the tooth and attach the custom-made inlay or onlay. Dental inlays and onlays are created to perfectly fit your tooth, restoring its original shape, structure, and appearance.
Dental inlays and onlays both serve the same purpose in restoring damaged teeth. The difference between inlays and onlays is that inlays are used when the damage does not include the cusp of the tooth, whereas a dental onlay is used to restore a tooth with damage that extends to the cusps.
