The Advantages of Using Inlays and Onlays
It is essential that you maintain optimal oral health to prevent further dental problems from happening. Inlays and Onlays are considered both restorative and cosmetic dental procedures that help solve issues of decay and cavities.
In some cases, your dentist can recommend the use of inlays and onlays when you have a cavity that is too large or deep for a filling. While both dental procedures repair cavity, onlays are commonly used for tooth damage that is more extensive and goes beyond the cusp of the tooth, as well as the biting surface. On the other hand, inlays are typically for tooth cavity that does not extend the cusp of the tooth.
Onlays and inlays are both useful because your dentist can preserve more of your tooth’s structure.. Inlays and onlays are usually made of porcelain and resin, which makes them durable and in turn, can help prolong the life of your tooth and prevent further dental procedures in the future. Also, both inlays and onlays can appear as natural as possible, and your dentist will customize the most suitable inlays or onlays for your tooth.
