Find the best restorative dentist near Fayetteville, Laurinburg, & Beyond
Village Family Dental is your choice dentist for restorative dentistry procedures, including inlays or onlays. These restorations may be necessary when a large amount of tooth structure is missing. An inlay is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth, while an onlay is more of a substantial reconstruction where one or more of the cusp tips require restoration.
Contact or call your local dentist’s office in North Carolina if you believe you need a tooth inlay or onlay procedure or any other dentistry service.
How are they applied?
Inlays and onlays require two appointments to complete the procedure. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared by removing old filling material or damaged/decayed tooth structure. An impression is taken and sent to the lab for fabrication. The doctor will place a temporary restoration on the tooth and schedule the next appointment. At the second appointment, the temporary is removed and the doctor will make sure the inlay or onlay fits properly. If the fit is satisfactory, the inlay or onlay will be bonded in place and polished.
