What are Inlay & Onlay Fillings?

In dentistry, an Inlay is an indirect restoration (filling) consisting of a solid substance (as gold, porcelain or less often a cured composite resin) fitted to a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place. This technique involves fabricating the restoration outside of the mouth using the dental impressions of the prepared tooth, rather than placing a soft filling into the prepared tooth before the material sets hard.

An Onlay is the same as an inlay, except that it incorporates a replacement for a tooth cusp by covering the area where the missing cusp would be. Crowns are onlays which completely cover all surfaces of a tooth.

FACT

The enamel on the top surface on your tooth, is the hardest part of your entire body.

TIP

A diet that is rich in vitamins, minerals and fresh fruit & vegetables can help prevent gum disease.

FACT

Visiting a Dentist twice a year is imperative for dental health.

FACT

Babies' teeth begin to develop before they are born, but in most cases don't come through until they're between 6 and 12 months old.

TIP

Floss or use an interdental brush every day to remove food, debris and plaque lodged between your teeth.

FACT

There are 32 adult teeth in total – 12 more than in the baby set.
