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.

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.

These guys are great! Starting from the receptionist, to the dental assistants all the way to Drs. Huynh and Phan. Everyone treats you so well. They make sure you know what's happening (if you wanna know, at least) and that you're comfortable the whole time. They've even taken care to put in amenities for you: like a massage dentist chair and a TV right above it for when your teeth are getting worked on. It's a great office, great practice.

This dentist office is truly a gem in Las Vegas! Dr. Eileen and her husband are so nice and competent. The receptionists always promptly call back and they will go above and beyond to squeeze you in if you need an emergency repair for a broken tooth for example. They won't try to sell you treatments you don't need and they don't lie to their patients. Been to so many bad dentist offices in the past, they are one of the best in Las Vegas. Prices are very reasonable too! Highly recommend this dentist office. Thank you Dr. Eileen!!

Thank you for the wonderful service I received today😊. I needed to get a lot of work done and was nervous about potential pain, because of my past experiences with other dentist offices. Dr. Huynh is the best dentist I have ever had, and treated this cry baby with the most gentle hands. She individually cleaned each tooth in my mouth, and I didn’t even need numbing gel lol. Everywhere else I have been in the past left me traumatized and in pain, so what a relief it was to be given that extra reassurance and perfect end results. I had an awesome teeth cleaning, and was numbed up perfectly to have my fillings put in. I look forward to all of my future teeth cleanings and check ups with Dr. Huynh!!!
