Our Services Inlays & Onlays

About Inlays & Onlays When a significant amount of a tooth is damaged, Dr. Hendrix may advise replacing the damaged structure with an inlay or onlay. Many times these are conservative alternatives to crowns.

If the damage is minimal, inlays are appropriate. When the damage is more extensive (but not enough to warrant replacement with a crown) onlays may be best.

Dr. Hendrix typically places inlays and onlays that are made of porcelain or gold and then bonded directly to the tooth. These materials are much stronger than traditional blended-metal fillings and tooth colored composite fillings and can help prevent further damage.

Procedure

First, Dr. Hendrix will remove the damaged areas (or old fillings). He then takes an impression, which is sent to a dental lab where the restoration is constructed.

After the laboratory has returned the completed inlay or onlay, Dr. Hendrix will check for proper fit, then bond the well-fitted restoration to your tooth.
