Inlays and Onlays in Halifax

If you have damaged teeth, your dentist may recommend inlays and onlays as a solution to restore them. Inlays and onlays are designed to fit precisely into the damaged area of the tooth and are custom-made in a dental lab. Not only do they provide a natural look, but they also offer a long-term solution for restoring damaged teeth.

How are Inlays Different from Onlays?

To determine whether an inlay or an onlay is the right solution for your damaged tooth, your dentist will carefully examine the affected area. Inlays are typically recommended when the damage is situated between the cusps of a tooth. On the other hand, onlays are used when the damage is located on a single cusp.

Do I Need an Onlay or a Crown?

While onlays are ideal for restoring teeth with minimal damage, dental crowns are recommended when the tooth is severely damaged or has undergone root canal treatment. Your dentist will recommend the best option for your specific dental needs and create a treatment plan that will restore your tooth’s health and function.
