What Are Inlays and Onlays?
Classified between a tooth-colored or composite filling and a crown, inlays and onlays can treat a decayed or damaged tooth. Used on molars and premolars, an inlay covers the concave middle of a tooth and an onlay covers the tooth's upper, rounded edges. Like fillings and crowns, onlays and inlays can be created in a variety of materials — metal, porcelain, and composite resin. Our dental experts can help Las Vegas, NV patients better understand composite fillings, crowns, inlays, and onlays so they can make the right decision about treating their teeth at Elegant Smiles.
How Do Inlays and Onlays Work?
An onlay or inlay is a good choice when you have a damaged tooth or a large cavity that's too big to get filled but does not require the entire coverage of a crown. During your examination, our doctors can examine your x-rays to determine the ideal method for your needs. If an onlay or inlay is chosen, our team will explain the available materials that will best suit your needs. After applying local anesthesia to numb the treatment area, our doctors will start by cleaning out regions of decay. Other techniques of sedation may be used in case you experience stress or a strong gag reflex. Once the tooth is cleaned and prepared, impressions will be made. If you're getting a restoration made in a lab, a temporary filling will be set until it is prepared. Once your inlay or onlay is ready, our dental experts will carefully set and bond it to your tooth. Our dentist may polish the edges or adjust the fit so your tooth is properly covered and feels comfortable.
If only local anesthesia was used, you should be able to leave following the procedure and return to your normal activities. You may feel mild discomfort, swelling, or sensitivity for several days once your onlay or inlay is placed. Please call Elegant Smiles if you have any concerns following your treatment. Your inlay or onlay should be taken care of just like your own teeth using daily brushing and flossing.
Elegant Smiles Reviews
I chose Elegant Smiles when looking for a dentist near my apartment and saw the great reviews. I have to say the reviews are only the tip fo the iceberg and if I could give 10 stars, I would! I had clear alignment orthodontic therapy done and Dr Eileen and Dr. Phi were both involved in my treatment. They explained the entire process to me and I felt comfortable throughout the entire 6 month process. They are so awesome! I felt my treatment was performed with the highest levels of quality and service. Beyond the treatment, what I absolutely love about Elegant Smiles is their entire staff. From the doctors to the assistants, to the front desk staff, from the moment I would enter the office, the staff was so welcoming and I was treated like family. My friends and family laugh at me because I keep saying how much I LOVE going to the dentist. It’s because I look forward to every visit and every time they call me for anything, it brings a smile to my face because they genuinely care and they are on top of it! I’m no longer in Las Vegas, but I want to do everything I can to time my cleanings and future treatments so that I can keep going to Elegant Smiles. Thank you for being so awesome!
