Inlays/Onlays

Imágen del proceso de incrustación dentalInalys/Onlays are procedures performed to restore a very damaged tooth in order to preserve it without using a full crown. This restoration consists in apreserving that area of ​​the tooth that is still healthy. For this, the onlay/inlay is cemented, replacing the structure that could have been lost due to wear, decay or after a fracture.

 

 

What types of inlays/onlays exist?

 

There are different materials with which dental inlays/onlays are manufactured. The amalgam ones are metallic, and their advantage is that they last a long time without deteriorating. In spite of this, they have fallen into disuse due to the fact that they can be seen too much and tend to generate aesthetic rejection by the patients.

The composite inlays/onlays are made with resin and light cured with LED light. Despite the good result is a somewhat delicate material and may be accompanied by greater wear over time.

And finally the most recommended, porcelain inlays/onlays. They give the tooth its natural appearance and has a great hardness and durability.

 

 

How is the procedure for placing inlays/onlays?

 

First, the part of the affected tooth is removed, creating a space in which the inlay/onlay will adhere. At the same time, a mold is made from the patient´s mouth, on which the dental inlay/onlay of the appropriate shape and size is manufactured. Once manufactured, the inlay/onlay is polished and checked in the mouth, eliminating inappropriate contacts until the perfect fit is achieved. Subsequently the area is prepared, the inlay/onlay is cemented to the tooth and the surface is polished.
