Inlays & Onlays Procedure Details
The inlays and onlays procedure usually concludes in two sessions. During your first session, our dentists examine your oral anatomy, take digital x-rays, and review your dental history. After the initial tests and consultation, we take a mold or impression of your teeth, allowing us to create customized dental inlays and onlays. We also remove all the infected, decayed, or damaged parts of your teeth or old fillings.
Once the cavity or damage is thoroughly cleaned, we prepare it to receive the inlays/ onlays and provide a temporary filling to protect the space while the permanent restorations are prepared. During your second session, we cement the new inlays and onlays in place and make the necessary adjustments to ensure they fit properly. Our dentists ensure the final restoration looks perfectly natural, blending into your surrounding teeth to be inconspicuous.
