Porcelain Inlays / Onlays in Mississauga

Well-suited for restoring weakened back teeth, and equally appropriate for restoring more visible tooth surfaces, porcelain inlays and onlays offer a strong, attractive alternative to traditional composite fillings. Typically considered for teeth that need a major portion restored or teeth that endure heavy chewing loads, porcelain inlays and onlays offer the protection and strength of a crown without the need for extensive tooth preparation. Made from the same strong, tooth-colored material as crowns and bridges, porcelain inlays and onlays are customized to match your tooth shape and shade—and are stronger and more durable than composite restorations.

The procedure of Porcelain Inlays / Onlays

Your dentist will recommend a dental inlay or onlay when the following applies to your teeth:

There is not enough damage to the tooth for it to require a dental crown

Curettage is the name for the procedure where diseased soft tissue is removed from around the tooth. By removing the diseased tissue, we are removing a source of chronic infection and irritation and allowing proper healing to occur.

There is not enough tooth structure in the mouth for a filling

But what exactly is the difference between inlays and onlays?

Dental Inlays

These are fixed into grooves within the cusps of your teeth

Dental Onlays

These are involved when there is wide decay or damage. They are used to fill a bigger cavity that extends over the cusps of a tooth

The process for both dental inlays and onlays is very similar. You will need to come in for 2 dental visits to complete this treatment.

During the first visit, your dentist uses specific dental tools to eliminate damaged parts of your tooth with a local anesthetic. They will make the tooth impression which will be then sent to a dental lab for inlay or onlay fabrication.


On the second visit, your dentist will clean and prepare the tooth for your permanent inlay or onlay. Your tooth restoration will be fitted perfectly and will be polished to make it smooth.

What are the benefits of Porcelain Inlays & Onlays?

Porcelain Inlays and Onlays have both aesthetic and functional benefits:

 

  • They reorganize the anatomy and function of a tooth
  • They support teeth and they replace decayed or damaged fillings
  • They reinstate your tooth and a natural, confident smile
  • They are extremely durable and can be safely used
  • They are a cost-effective solution

How do you take care of Porcelain Inlays and Onlays at home?

It can take from 1-2 weeks for your oral health to fully recover from a wisdom teeth extraction. During this healing process, there are some important care tips to keep in mind:
  • After the procedure, make sure to not chew hard things until the anesthetic wears off
  • Take your selected over-the-counter pain medication, as prescribed
  • Properly brush and floss your teeth regularly
  • Call your dentist if any of the following occurs:
    • Bleeding
    • Fever
    • Gum or tooth pain
    • Biting/chewing issues

Who are Porcelain Inlays and Onlays for?

When you have enough or more damage required for a traditional dental filling, but not too much harm to deserve the need for a crown, Porcelain Inlays / Onlays are suitable for you. However, it is important for the patient to have a good tooth structure to support the restoration.
