Transform Your Smile with Inlays and Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays represent a cutting-edge approach to restorative dentistry, offering a meticulous and personalized solution for a range of dental concerns. Whether you seek to repair damaged teeth, reinforce weakened structures, or simply enhance the natural beauty of your smile, our skilled professionals at North River Dental Clinic are here to guide you through every step of the process.

Inlays Vs. Onlays

Dental Inlays
A dental inlay is a custom-made restoration that fits into the cavity of a damaged or decayed tooth. Crafted from high-quality materials such as porcelain, composite resin, or gold, inlays offer a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution for restoring the tooth’s structure. Inlays are an ideal choice for addressing moderate tooth damage while preserving a natural appearance.
Dental Onlays
Similar to inlays, dental onlays are also custom-made restorations designed to treat more extensive damage that extends to the chewing surface of the tooth. Onlays cover one or more cusps (points) and provide a conservative yet effective solution for restoring the tooth’s integrity. They offer the benefits of both inlays and crowns, preserving more of the natural tooth structure while providing superior strength.

What are dental inlays and onlays?
Dental inlays and onlays are custom-made restorations used to repair damaged or decayed teeth. Inlays fit within the grooves of a tooth, while onlays cover a larger surface area. Crafted from durable materials like porcelain, they provide a natural look and strengthen weakened teeth.
Inlays and onlays offer a more substantial restoration compared to traditional fillings. While fillings are molded directly onto the tooth, inlays and onlays are fabricated outside the mouth, ensuring a precise fit and enhanced structural integrity.
At North River Dental, we commonly use porcelain and composite resin for inlays and onlays. These materials not only mimic the appearance of natural teeth but also provide durability and resistance to staining, offering long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing results.
The process typically involves two appointments. During the first visit, impressions are taken, and a temporary restoration is placed. At the second appointment, the custom-fit inlay or onlay is bonded to the tooth, ensuring a seamless fit and restoring both function and aesthetics.
With proper care and regular dental check-ups, inlays and onlays from North River Dental can last for many years. Maintaining good oral hygiene practices and avoiding excessive pressure on treated teeth will contribute to the longevity of these restorations.
Inlays and onlays are versatile and can be used on molars, premolars, and even front teeth. Your dentist at North River Dental will assess the extent of damage or decay to determine the most suitable type of restoration for your specific dental needs.
While inlays and onlays do not demand any extraordinary care, maintaining a consistent oral hygiene routine, including regular brushing and flossing, is crucial. Additionally, scheduling routine dental check-ups at North River Dental will help monitor the condition of the restorations and address any concerns promptly.
Yes, if an inlay or onlay becomes damaged or worn over time, it can be replaced. Regular dental examinations at our Ellenton, FL clinic will allow our experienced team to assess the condition of your restorations and recommend any necessary repairs or replacements to ensure continued dental health.
Depending on the extent of damage, alternatives such as fillings or crowns may be considered. However, inlays and onlays offer a conservative option, preserving more natural tooth structure while providing effective and aesthetically pleasing results. Your dentist at North River Dental will recommend the best solution for your specific case.
Many dental insurance plans cover a portion of the cost for inlays and onlays, especially when deemed necessary for oral health. Our team at North River Dental will work with you to maximize your insurance benefits and explore flexible payment options to make your dental care as accessible as possible.

I got the smile I always wanted! I chose these folks because of all the positive reviews I found on Google. Looks like they’re gonna get another one. Doc Steinberg is the real deal and I will definitely be recommending this office to all my family and friends. I had to make multiple trips due the extent of work required, and I was greeted with a warm smile and friendly service every time. I can’t say enough about the people in this office and how pleasant my experience was. Yes a pleasant experience at the dentist! Go figure.

My husband and I made the decision to try NRD after having some bad experiences at our last dental office. We were both blown away by how welcoming the staff at NRD were. Thank you Bonnie, Vanessa, Dr Raj, and Tayla for making my first exam and cleaning so enjoyable!

Great dental office. Super professional and friendly staff. This was my first visit. I was seen exactly at my appointment time. I received a thorough dental exam and evaluation, followed by a cleaning I could not have been happier with the process, the staff and the outcome

This is the best dentist office you could ever go to.They all are great. They treat you so kind, especially Bobbie Jo and the Dr. I was never a fan of going to the dentist as most of us are not, right, but the experience I have had at NRD has changed all that. I enjoy going to the dentist now and you will too, I promise, just give them a call.

I felt very comfortable from the moment I walked in. Kelly was an excellent guide through the entire evaluation. Drs. Delarose and Steinberg were informative, friendly and comforting with my uneasiness at being in a dental office. I plan on coming back and starting my dental journey right here!

When half a tooth fell out unexpectedly, on referral from a friend, I went to North River Dental. I have received what I perceive to be above standard service. So far, I’ve gained a new crown, lost a bad tooth, had a cleaning, and plan for a deep cleaning. All of this was done with the newest of images and diagnostic tools coupled with really friendly and effective professionalism. I definitely recommend this group for anyone wanting help with mouth issues.

11/9/23 1 week ago Dr. Raj finished a root canal on my left upper eye tooth & did a wonderful job. He is known as the root canal specialist. He lets you know what he is doing & why he is doing it. He is very gentle & has a great sense of humor. On Friday of that same week I broke my left upper molar after the office had closed. On Monday morning I called the office and told the receptionist about my broken tooth and they fit me in by 10:00am that day. The whole office staff is great. They’re very accommodating & polite, but I do miss the chocolate chip cookies they used to serve. Niki B.
