Repair and Reconstruct the Biting Surface of Your Teeth with Dental Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and Onlays at iSMILE DENTAL CENTRE in Brampton provided by our specialists are indirect restorations. Indirection restorations are made outside the dental clinic in a dental laboratory here in Brampton. Inlays and Onlays are typically used when the dental cavity is too large to be entirely restored using a simple dental filling. A simple filling may not provide sufficient strength to restore extensively decayed teeth. If this situation arises with you, our dentists at iSMILE DENTAL CENTRE may suggest you go for Inlays and Onlays in Brampton, depending upon your individual case needs.
Inlays and Onlays at iSMILE DENTAL CENTRE in Brampton are a more conservative approach to restore a tooth. Inlays and Onlays in Brampton do not require extensive crown cutting and preparations like dental crowns do. It is an excellent alternative to a dental crown. Inlay and Onlays at iSMILE DENTAL CENTRE in Brampton can restore up to 75% of the tooth’s strength.
WHAT IS AN INLAY?
Inlays at iSMILE DENTAL CENTRE in Brampton are used to restore large cavities on the biting surfaces of the back teeth. The back teeth consist of large fissures, which trap food particles and bacteria, giving rise to cavities. These cavities have the potential to destroy large portions of the tooth structure. When a cavity is significantly large, and a straightforward filling may not restore the tooth to its original shape, size and strength, our dentists use Inlays. Inlays at iSMILE DENTAL CENTRE in Brampton are prepared outside the oral cavity in a dental laboratory.
WHAT IS AN ONLAY?
Dental Onlays in Brampton are similar to Inlays but are more extensive. Our natural back tooth’s biting surface consists of cusps. These cusps play a significant role in maintaining the correct bite and application of optimum chewing forces. When one of the cusps gets involved in a dental cavity and is destroyed by it, our dentists at iSMILE DENTAL CENTRE in Brampton will prescribe you onlays. Onlays restore the biting surface of your teeth, including one of the cusps. Onlays are also custom-made for every patient in a dental laboratory.
HOW ARE DENTAL INLAYS AND ONLAYS IN BRAMPTON MADE?
When you schedule an appointment to visit us for a dental check-up at iSMILE DENTAL CENTRE in Brampton, one of our specialist dentists will first thoroughly examine your oral cavity. Once our dentist in Brampton has reached a diagnosis, they will create a treatment plan for you to cater to your dental health needs.
The process of inlays and onlays is similar. One of our specialist dentists at iSMILE DENTAL CENTRE in Brampton will use a dental drill to clear out the infection in your tooth, prepare and clean the cavity. After this, an impression of your upper and lower jaw is taken. This impression acts as a mould that is poured to form a model cast. This model cast goes to the laboratory, and an inlay or an onlay is casted or made on it. In your next appointment, this prepared inlay or onlay will be fixed into the prepared cavity with dental cement. Our dentist will check the inlay or onlay in Brampton for proper fit and bite. Once they approve it, the restoration will be polished, which marks the completion of your treatment.
MATERIAL USED FOR MAKING INLAYS AND ONLAYS IN BRAMPTON
Inlays and onlays can be made of gold, composite, and porcelain. In the earlier time, gold inlays and onlays were very popular due to their strength and excellent bio-compatibility properties. However, gold inlays and onlays are not aesthetically pleasing as they are yellow in colour.
Therefore, at iSMILE DENTAL CENTRE in Brampton, we make frequent use of porcelain. Porcelain or ceramic can be manipulated to match the shade of your tooth closely. It’s is aesthetically superior and yields a great result. Porcelain blends in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Porcelain inlays and onlays also have excellent strength and durability. Porcelain inlays and onlays in Brampton have the property of being stain resistant, making them the material of choice.
