Dental Inlays & Onlays in Wayne

Effectively Repairing & Restoring Your Teeth

A full dental crown is an excellent solution for a broken off or worn down tooth that needs to be built up, or one that needs the added strength and protection. A filling is a great solution for a small cavity that does not compromise the tooth structure. What can we do for a tooth with moderate damage that needs something sturdier than a filling, but doesn’t need a full crown? The answer is an inlay or an onlay.

Dental Inlays

An inlay, also called an indirect filling, is a small, custom-made dental restoration that replaces missing tooth material. It is stronger than a composite filling and appropriate for larger cavities. An inlay does not cover the cusp (tip) of the tooth.

Dental Onlays

An onlay, also called a partial dental crown, is similar to an inlay but larger. It covers all or part of the cusp and adds strength to the treated tooth. It is appropriate for a tooth with too much damage for an inlay, which does not quite need a full crown.

The Procedure

Inlays and onlays are considered indirect restorations because they are created outside of the mouth. In some dental offices, this means the patient has to wait for a laboratory to create the restoration and ship it to the dentist. We use E4D CAD/CAM technology to create inlays and onlays in Wayne, as well as crowns and other ceramic restorations, right here in our office.

Your dentist will begin by numbing the area to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Next, the decay and any damaged tooth material are removed. Unlike a dental crown, inlays and onlays do not require further tooth preparation. The healthy portion of the tooth structure is left intact, and a digital impression is taken. The restoration is then carved by our E4D machine. After verifying the fit and appearance, your dentist will cement it in place.

At Aesthetic Smile Design, we offer a wide variety of restorative options, including fillings, inlays, onlays, and full crowns, because each person has unique needs. If you have a damaged tooth, we will recommend the most conservative, effective option. Call (973) 847-2311 and schedule a consultation for dental inlays and onlays in Wayne today.
