Inlay and Onlay Dental Restorations

Inlay and Onlay Dental Restorations

Inlay and onlay dental restorations are one of the aesthetic dental applications applied to teeth that do not require filling and whose tooth structure is not damaged or damaged enough to require coating. The difference between an inlay and onlay dental restorations is related to their coverage areas. Inlay dental restorations are like dental fillings and are applied to the surface of the chewing areas. Onlay dental restorations can be applied to more extensive surfaces. Inlays and onlays are made of ceramic, which is a solid, white material. It is mostly applied to the teeth with advanced caries and root canal treatment which are left with insufficient healthy tooth surfaces after cleaning.

It is a dental veneer method developed to prevent material loss in teeth. Onlays are the preferred method for covering more damaged teeth. The materials used for these methods are composed of robust, durable materials suitable for chewing. Sometimes tooth decay occurs in a part of the tooth and has not spread. The tooth with the removed tooth decay is not as strong as before and it weakens. With inlay and onlay dental restorations, this weakened tooth coating is remade and the tooth is strengthened.

Depending on the size and location of the area where tooth weakness occurs, one of the two methods is preferred. By filling the gaps with these methods, we obtain teeth in full contact and adaptation with each other. People treated with these methods use these veneers with satisfaction.

Tooth Restorations Filling Treatment

Dental restorations are known as filling veneers. Inlay and onlay dental restorations provide support and strength as well as cover the tooth spaces where they are applied. The decision is made according to the size of the damage and salvage status of the tooth. Depending on the extent of the damage to the tooth, a choice is made between the two methods. With these methods, which are determined according to the coverage area of the damage, the most suitable dental veneers are made for the structure of other teeth.
