Sometimes, a large portion of your teeth may decay or suffer damage from trauma. When this affects the back of a tooth, quick dental attention is required to restore strength and provide added support to the affected tooth.
Inlays and outlays are used to fill the back of the teeth when they are decayed or damaged, but the damage is not significant enough for a crown. These two methods restore and strengthen normal tooth structure.
An inlay is fitted within tooth cusps and an onlay is bonded over the entire chewing surface when the damage is more extensive. Onlays allow our dentists to preserve the tooth structure which allows for functional longevity.
At The Gallery Dental Centre, we provide natural-looking inlays and outlays that help restore your damaged teeth. They can be made from porcelain, resin, or gold materials.
Our staff craft inlays and outlays for you in our state-of-the art laboratory after assessing the tooth damage. The inlays and outlays are customised to fit your tooth structure.
