Littleton’s Premier Restorative Dentistry

Inlays and Onlays are used to restore teeth that have mild to moderate decay, or have small cracks or fractures. Inlays are used to repair small areas of decay, while onlays are able to cover larger areas, such as the entire chewing surface of the tooth. These types of restorations can be made of ceramic, porcelain fused to metal, or even gold.

Advantages of Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and Onlays have many advantages, including:

  • They don’t discolor over time
  • They are extremely durable
  • They can strengthen a damaged tooth
  • Much of the healthy tooth structure is preserved

Our High-Tech Procedure

In general, our inlay and onlay procedures are compiled in two separate office visits. During your first visit, Dr. Burdick preps the decayed or damaged area of the tooth for restoration. While the impression of your tooth is sent to the lab for fabrication, Dr. Burdick will place a temporary inlay or onlay on your tooth to preserve it until your next visit. At your second visit, the permanent restoration will be securely bonded to your tooth.
