Treatment Description

If your tooth has been damaged but not to the extent that you need a crown we can use an inlay or onlay to rebuild your damaged tooth back to full strength.

Inlays and onlays are a cross between a crown and a filling, and need less preparation of the tooth.

The process is similar to that for a crown. We take an impression, or mould, of the tooth and surrounding area, and send it to our dental lab. There, a skilled technician will create your inlay or onlay, ensuring that it is a perfect fit and colour match.

Once your new inlay or onlay is ready, we will fit it and bond it in place with special dental cement.
