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.

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.

Kristin was WONDERFUL as a dental hygienist. I hope she remains with NRD. I couldn’t ask for better service. It was also great that she set up Dr. Steinberg to review my x-rays and see me for the last time before he retires. I have been a patient since 2003 and I am sad to see Dr. Steinberg leave – the whole organization has been like family all these years. God Bless everyone who remains with NRD. Thank you for excellent service.

I went to another local dentist and they couldn’t schedule my cleaning for 6 months and even cancelled my appointment months before it was to even happen! Found this place and they got me in so quickly and the staff was so patient and accommodating. Scheduling is so easy and they are quick! I’m so happy to have found them!

New to North River Dental. Broke a tooth. They got me in the next day, put a temporary crown in, and now waiting for the permanent one. The staff and dentist were friendly, thorough, and efficient. The cost was lower than they originally quoted me, so they are honest too. So far, so good!

I’m not a client of North River Dental,instead I’m apart of their extended family. This is how I feel about the staff,and the quality of care exceeded the 5 stars. That’s why I constantly recommend it to family and friends.

I had bad experiences as a kid going to the dentist and I have anxiety when I go. So I stayed away from dentists. Needless to say my teeth got bad as I aged. I needed dentures and I went to North River Dental for implants and I was quite anxious about the procedure. The dentist and staff were very understanding and explained the process to me. My fears soon left as the procedure was painless and the outcome was great. It’s been 3 years since I had it done and I’m glad I chose the folks at North River.
