Inlays and Onlays Broadmeadow

example of inlay and onlayDental health is of utmost importance, not only for maintaining a beautiful smile, but also for ensuring overall wellbeing. Among the various dental treatments available, inlays and onlays have gained popularity as an effective solution for repairing larger cavities and addressing some cosmetic issues.

At The Smile Factory, we offer these restorations that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing both functional and aesthetic benefits. Moreover, by using the highest quality materials, inlays and onlays guarantee long-lasting results that will keep your smile looking its best.

Repairing Larger Cavities

Traditional fillings can effectively treat small to medium-sized cavities, but they may not be sufficient for larger cavities or those involving the cusps (the biting surfaces) of the teeth. In such cases, inlays and onlays offer a more suitable solution.

Inlays are used when the damage is confined within the cusps, while onlays extend over one or more cusps and are often referred to as partial crowns. Both inlays and onlays are custom-made in a dental lab to fit the exact dimensions of the cavity, ensuring a precise and secure fit. Once prepared, the inlay or onlay is bonded to the tooth, restoring its strength and functionality.

Addressing Cosmetic Issues

In addition to their restorative benefits, inlays and onlays can also address certain cosmetic issues. They can be used to repair chipped or fractured teeth, close gaps between teeth, or even replace old, discoloured fillings that detract from the appearance of your smile.

Since they are made from tooth-coloured materials like porcelain or composite resin, inlays and onlays blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing an aesthetically pleasing result.

Using the Highest Quality Materials for Long-Lasting Results

One of the reasons inlays and onlays have become a popular choice among patients and dentists alike is their durability. By using the highest quality materials like porcelain, gold, or composite resin, these restorations are designed to last for many years. In fact, with proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups, inlays and onlays can last up to 30 years or more.
