    What Are Inlays and Onlays

    Inlays and onlays are types of ceramic restorations that are custom-designed to restore damaged teeth. It is a conservative dental treatment that can restore your teeth while preserving the healthy tooth structure.

    An inlay covers a small area of the chewing surface that does not involve the tooth cusps (raised edges of the tooth). On the other hand, an onlay extends to the cuspal surface and has bigger coverage. Depending on the size of the tooth cavity or damage, our St. John’s, NL, specialist will decide whether inlays or onlays are best suited for the restoration of your teeth.

    Process of Inlays and Onlays in St. John’s, NL

    Inlays and onlays are also called indirect restorations because, unlike conventional dental fillings, they are fabricated in a dental lab. The treatment process involves two dental appointments. During the first visit, we will start the procedure by numbing your teeth with a local anesthetic. It helps reduce the risk of pain and sensitivity.

    Once your teeth are numb, we will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and smoothen the rough edges. This technique does not include enamel removal, so we preserve as much of the healthy tooth structure as possible. We will then record dental impressions and send them to a lab.

    On the second visit, our prosthodontist will test the fit of the restoration and bond it permanently with the tooth surface. It blends seamlessly, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your smile. Our team will also provide aftercare instructions to prolong the lifespan of these restorations.

    From the moment that I first met Dr. Chedella at his dentist chair, I knew I was in good hands. I had implants started in another country but not finished due to the pandemic. Dr. Chedella did a perfect job in completing the procedure. After waiting 20 months in limbo, I can't thank you enough Dr. Chedella.

    Nice friendly staff. The doctor gave practical, easy advice on every day changes I could make to help my TMJ problem - and it worked! One of the few specialists I’ve seen in years who I didn’t feel was trying to push an expensive device or unnecessary procedure on me - it was refreshing.
