Inlays and Onlays at Dentus Family Dental in St. Albert
At Dentus Family Dental, we are happy to offer you a wide range of restorative and preventative options. We offer quality porcelain inlays and porcelain onlays near you to restore your teeth.
Inlays and Onlays are very popular forms of dental treatment often offered in a Porcelain material, however many also choose to use Gold as their material of choice. Inlays are in a sense a type of filling, however they differ in that they are more “custom” to your individual tooth. Whereas a filling is placed at the site immediately, an Inlay is similar to a puzzle piece, in that after the tooth is “prepped” (the diseased part is removed) an impression is taken and then sent off to a lab who then makes the inlay to fit into your tooth. The Inlay is then cemented into the tooth, similar to how a crown would be cemented. An Onlay is similar in that it too is made to fit like a puzzle piece on your tooth, however it typically covers more surface area than an Inlay does. If you’re interested in receiving porcelain onlays or porcelain inlays near you, schedule a consultation with us. We will be glad to determine if this treatment is right for you.
