Inlays, Onlays & Crowns

Inlays and onlays are customised to your tooth, so they can be more securely bonded to the tooth surface, adding structural integrity and preventing bacteria from entering and forming cavities. Crowns are a restoration that entirely covers or "caps" a tooth. Speak to our dentists who can explain the differences and what best suits your needs.

Inlays and Onlays

Dental inlays or onlays are used to restore teeth with mild to moderate decay, or teeth that have cracks or fractures that are not severe enough for a crown. They can also be used to replace metal fillings.

Inlays are used to restore teeth where the decay or damage is within the indented top surfaces.

Onlays are used to restore teeth where the decay or damage extends to the cusp of the tooth or beyond.

Dental inlays or onlays are made from porcelain, composite resin or gold.

Inlays and Onlays are a two step process because they are fabricated by a laboratory using the impression taken by your dentist. You will be fitted with a temporary inlay or onlay while you wait for the finished restoration to return. Because they are customised to your tooth, they can be more securely bonded to the tooth surface, adding structural integrity and preventing bacteria from entering and forming cavities.

Crowns

A dental crown is a restoration that entirely covers or "caps" a tooth. It can be fabricated from a number of different tooth-coloured materials and will improve the appearance of your smile. A crown may be recommended to:

  • Replace a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Support a bridge to replace a missing tooth
  • Cover a poorly shaped tooth
  • Strengthen a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
