Inlays or onlays are restorations of choice when a tooth has a failed large filling or large decay but still has one or more tooth surface intact. In these situations traditional dental fillings or crowns are also can be used, but neither of them can be the right choice.
A crown requires preparing the tooth into a small structure to support the crown, which would be fabricated in the lab, therefore all the surfaces of the tooth for the crown need to be prepared in advance. This means even intact surfaces of the damaged tooth, would be drilled out.
Also the traditional filling may not be able to provide the level of protection required.
At Aldgate House Dental Care, we offer onlays or inlays that are made from a strong ceramic material. The result is an almost invisible solution that has longer lasting results when compared with alternative tooth coloured treatments.
