Dental Inlays and Onlays

Restore your teeth' natural strength and appearance with precision-crafted and onlays.

Restore Damaged Teeth

Family Dentistry of Lakewood offers inlays and onlays as an effective solution for repairing damaged or decayed teeth. These restorations are custom-made to fit the exact shape of your tooth, providing a seamless and durable result. Inlays and onlays are ideal for teeth with too much damage for a filling but are not severe enough to require a crown. Our skilled dental team uses high-quality materials to ensure your restored teeth look natural and function properly.

  • When are inlays and onlays used?

    Inlays and onlays are used when a tooth has significant decay or damage that a standard filling cannot repair. They are often recommended for molars and premolars that require more strength and stability than a filling can provide.

  • How long do dental inlays and onlays last?

    They can last anywhere from 10 to 30 years with proper care and maintenance. Their longevity depends on factors such as oral hygiene practices, the materials used, and the location of the inlay or onlay in the mouth.

  • What materials are used for inlays and onlays?

    Inlays and onlays can be made from various materials, including porcelain, composite resin, and gold. Porcelain and composite resin are popular choices because they can be color-matched to your natural teeth, providing a discreet and aesthetically pleasing result. Gold is highly durable and often used for strength and longevity, especially in back teeth.
