Inlays and Onlays at Vancouver’s Arbutus North Dental Centre Restore your Perfect, Healthy Smile
Suffering with cracked, broken or worn tooth that has more than half its biting surface damaged is a problem that affects how you look, how you feel, and how well your teeth are working.
Fortunately, inlays/onlays are an ideal solution to not only repair your oral health, but transform how you look – and how you feel!
Inlays and onlays can be made from porcelain, gold, or composite resin, and they’re often the ideal alternative to crowns for when tooth damage is not extensive.
Inlays are similar to fillings, while onlays are for situations that requires more substantial restoration and reconstruction. Both involve bonding the material to the damaged are of your tooth, and restoring it to perfect functionality and beauty.
And even better, compared to traditional fillings which can reduce the natural strength of a tooth by up to 50%, inlays and onlays increase the strength of a tooth by up to 75%! This allows them to last for 10-30 years.
About the Procedure
Inlays and onlays can be done remarkably quickly, and only require two appointments. The first visit is for preparation and for your skilled and caring Arbutus North dentist to take a customized impression of your tooth. The second visit is to permanently bond the inlay/onlay to your tooth. It’s then polished to a smooth finish and a perfect look.
