Dental Inlays & Onlays
Drs. Stohl Specialize in Dental Inlays & Onlays in Salt Lake City
Inlays and Onlays are lab-made restorations that are placed on teeth when the cavity or lost tooth structure is too large to be restored by a simple filling. The process of making an inlay is very similar to a crown. After the tooth is prepared, it is cemented or bonded to the tooth.
There are different materials that Dental Inlays and Onlays are made of, including gold, porcelain, and composite resins. Porcelain and composite Dental Inlays and Onlays are cosmetic alternatives to fillings and are very strong compared to regular white fillings. Gold Dental Inlays and Onlays are also suitable alternatives, but their appearance makes them less popular.
Your Salt Lake City Dentists will explain when a Dental Inlay or Onlay is a viable treatment option for you. In general, Dental Inlays and Onlays can replace most back teeth fillings and are sometimes cosmetically preferred over conventional fillings. At the same time, they are more conservative than crowns.
As far as cost is concerned, because the process of making a Dental Inlay and Onlay is similar to a crown, its cost is also comparable. But when considering the longevity of Dental Inlays and Onlays, they can end up costing less than traditional fillings.
