At Mount Road Dental Surgery our dentists can restore chipped, fractured or decayed teeth at the back of your mouth without the need for an extraction or a new dental crown. Dental inlays are used when a filling may not provide adequate protection inside the cusp of tooth. Dental onlays repair the outer part of the tooth when the damaged or decayed tooth is not severe enough to require a new dental crown.
Dental treatment begins with a local anaesthetic and then the tooth is prepared before the restoration takes place. If the tooth has an old filling, this will be removed before the inlay process commences. Dental inlays and onlays use a hard-wearing porcelain or ceramic material so it will last for many years.
Our dentists will also carefully match the dental inlay or onlay material with the natural colour of your teeth. After restoration your tooth will be clean and polished to feel as good as new.
