Dental Inlays and Onlays Near You
Inlays and onlays, are mainly used to support the tooth structure. These cosmetic dentistry solutions are used when a tooth is mildly or moderately decayed or there is not enough tooth structure to support a filling. For tooth damage, we attach outlays directly on the complete surface of the tooth. An inlay covers the center of the tooth when the outer surface is not damaged.
The Procedure for Inlays and Onlays
If you are receiving inlays and onlays in Sherwood Park, you will typically be required to visit your dentist twice for this procedure.
Our dentist will prepare your damaged tooth and take impressions of it during the first visit for inlays and only near you. The impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory for the construction of the restoration. To protect your tooth until your final restoration is ready, they will provide you with a temporary restoration.
