What Are the Benefits of Inlays and Onlays?

Posted on 1/27/2016 by Dr Wael Garine
A woman happy with her smile after receiving onlays and inlays.When it comes to dental restorations and procedures, many people haven't heard of dental inlays and onlays, despite the fact that they can make a major impact on the function and appearance of your smile.

Inlays and onlays are used in the instance of tooth decay or damage, and your dentist might recommend them when a traditional filling isn't providing the necessary protection for the tooth. The inlay will be bonded to the inner workings of the tooth while the onlay will cover up the outer wall or surface of the tooth.

Benefits of Inlays and Onlays

If you are considering inlays and onlays in order to treat your cavity, it is important to consider the pros and cons of these restorations.

When it comes to benefits, many dentists recommend these restorations because they offer better protection for the teeth than fillings, and they are extremely durable. When examined frequently, inlays and onlays will last longer than fillings, and they are also less likely to result in sensitivity to hot and cold.

Shortcomings of Inlays and Onlays

Like any dental procedure, choosing inlays and onlays will have a few shortcomings. While the system does last longer than fillings, they are typically more expensive, as your dentist will usually need to send your information out to a lab to have them constructed.

This means that you'll need two appointments to have them put into place, compared to fillings which usually only require a single visit. However, they do tend to be cheaper than crowns, which may be another treatment method recommended by your dentist if a simple cavity isn't enough to treat the tooth.

If you are considering an inlay and onlay to treat your cavity, it is important to discuss your options with your dentist. You'll be able to review the pros and cons of each available option in order to choose the best treatment method for you.
