Inlay & Onlay What to Expect
Dr. Kaplan begins the inlay or onlay procedure by administering a local anesthetic for the comfort of the patient. Once numb, the decayed tissue is removed from the infected tooth. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned and prepared for the inlay or onlay.
Inlays are used to treat decay affecting the contour of the surface of the tooth. Inlays are ideal for treating large surface areas of decay. The inlay will be color matched and polished to create a seamless, beautiful and lasting result.
Also referred to as a partial crown, the onlay is custom designed to conform to the crevices of the crown of the tooth. Onlays are used to treat damage or decay in the crown of the tooth, a common place for decay to develop due to the difficulty to clean.
