Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations which are used for the repair of teeth with mild to moderate decay and damage, or teeth that are cracked or fractured. They are ideal if a tooth is not damaged enough to need the protection of a dental crown but has endured enough damage that it cannot be repaired with a dental filling. Inlays and onlays are also known as indirect restorations as they are made outside of the mouth, in contrast to normal fillings that are directly placed and shaped inside the mouth.

Inlays and onlays can be manufactured using porcelain or composite resin. Dental inlays are used to treat teeth that have decay or damage between the cusps of the teeth, while onlays are used to treat decay that reaches out to one or more cusps.

To prepare your tooth, we will clean the tooth and remove damage and decay. Then, we will take an impression of your tooth. Once your custom-made restoration is complete, it will be placed on the tooth using dental bonding material.

Advantages of tooth restoration using Inlays and Onlays:

  • They are almost invisible restorations since they are made to match the natural tooth color.
  • The use of inlays and onlays requires less preparation for the tooth than metal fillings.
  • Inlays and onlays can replace silver fillings to create a natural and healthy smile.
  • They are durable.
  • By protecting decayed teeth, inlays and onlays prevent the need for more extensive treatment later.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr Ziomek has been "managing my mouth" for more than 30 years! In fact I still fly back from New Mexico for my semi-annual exams and needed dental work. She is highly skilled, caring, gentle and always works to keep my teeth and gums healthy. Her staff reflects these same qualities. I recommend her office to everyone!"

"Dr. Leung is a great dentist. He is gentle, honest and really listens to your concerns. My whole family sees him! He did Invisalign on my daughter and now she loves her smile! Pay him a visit, you won’t be disappointed!"

"One of the Best Dental Groups in the DMV! This was my first time at the office, but the staff made me feel welcomed as if I was a regular patient. The front desk staff was nice and welcoming! The dental hygienist is really knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. The individual rooms are huge. Each room is equipped with its own television! Usually I am scared of getting poked at but the hygienist gave me a pain free cleaning! Dr. Leung spoke to me after the cleaning and devised a great plan to ensure that my teeth stay strong and healthy. I will be coming back to visit Dr. Leung and his staff again! I highly recommend this dental group!"
