Inlays and Onlays

Dentist matching tooth color for inlays and onlays

If you catch a cavity early enough, usually a dental filling will take care of the job. However, the more you wait, the more likely we’ll suggest inlays and onlays for your decayed teeth. At Barker Dentistry & Implant Center, we’re always looking for the best possible solutions to properly maintain excellent oral health.

What are Inlays and Onlays?

These restorations are usually made of either porcelain or composite resin, so they can easily match the shade of your natural teeth. While fillings come with many benefits, they can’t compare to the stability added by using inlays and onlays. They can increase the tooth structure’s integrity by around 50 percent.

After we take a digital dental impression of your teeth, we’ll use it to fabricate a custom restoration. Dr. Barker will use an adhesive to secure it into place.

Are Inlays and Onlays Right for Me?

If a cavity grows to be too large, you will most likely require inlays and onlays. Inlays cover the area between tooth cusps. We use onlays for even larger tasks, as they can cover the area over multiple cusps.

What are the Benefits of Inlays and Onlays?

  • Increases integrity of a tooth’s structure
  • Durable and stable
  • Great for large cavities
  • Less likely to contract and expand due to temperature
  • Custom-made to fit your smile
