About Inlays and Onlays

Classified between a dental filling and a crown, a dental inlay or onlay can restore a damaged or decayed tooth. Used on molars and pre-molars, a dental inlay covers the indented center of a tooth while an onlay covers the tooth's rounded, upper edges. Like dental fillings and crowns, inlays and onlays can be made from a variety of materials — composite resin, metal, and porcelain. Dr. Ellen Katz and Dr. Bridget Glazarov can help New York, NY patients understand fillings, crowns, inlays, and onlays so they can make the right decision about how to treat their tooth at Maison BE.

Seeing Dr. Katz and her caring staff makes going to the dentist almost palatable 🤪. Dr. Katz is kind, compassionate, and a very good dentist. She’s not going for the money grab and is conservative in her treatment. Would highly recommend this practice.

How Do Inlays and Onlays Work?

An onlay or inlay is a fantastic option if you have a cracked tooth or a large cavity that's too big to get filled but does not need the complete protection of a crown. During your exam, your dentist will examine your digital x-rays to determine the best method for your tooth. After applying anesthesia to numb the treatment area, Dr. Ellen or Dr. Bridget will start by cleaning out areas of decay. As soon as the restoration is ready, your dentist will carefully set and then bond it on your tooth, followed by polishing borders and adjusting the fit so your tooth is properly coated and feels right. If only local anesthesia was used, you can leave after the procedure and get back to your normal day. You might feel some discomfort or sensitivity for a few days once your onlay or inlay is placed. Your onlay or inlay should be taken care of just like your own teeth with daily brushing and flossing.

Customized Cavity Treatments

If you have a decayed or damaged tooth, it's important to treat the issue before it turns into a painful and expensive problem. Dental inlays and onlays are an alternative to fillings that will be recommended based on your needs.

About Us
Are inlays and onlays better than fillings?
Inlays and onlays are best for patients with cavities that are too large for fillings. One isn't necessarily better than the other. The deciding factor will be your unique needs and dental conditions. Dr. Katz or Dr. Glazarov may recommend either inlays and onlays or fillings after a comprehensive dental exam at our office.
How should I clean my teeth after getting inlays and onlays?
Inlays and onlays should be cleaned the same as regular teeth. Cleaning the inlays and onlays is crucial to the lasting results of your treatment. After your treatment, Maison BE patients should brush their teeth using a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste two times a day. Individuals should not use their teeth as tools, as this may damage the inlays and onlays.
How long do inlays and onlays last?
With proper dental maintenance and regular professional cleanings, inlays and onlays usually last for about 10 – 15 years. This makes them a great long-term option for patients with damaged teeth who desire something stronger and/or larger than a filling.
