Inlays and Onlays FAQs
Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about inlays and onlays below:
What is the difference between inlays and onlays?
Inlays repair tooth damage in the cusp of the tooth. Decay is removed, the tooth is cleaned, and the inlay is bonded to protect and seal the tooth during this procedure. Onlays address damage that cover a large surface area. It can cover one or more cusps and are sometimes referred to as partial crowns because of this.
How long do inlays and onlays last?
With the right dental care, inlays and onlays can last you 20 to 30 years. You should avoid eating overly sticky or hard foods to ensure that your teeth and the restoration are properly cared for.
How do onlays compare to dental crowns?
Less tooth structure needs to be removed for treatment with an onlay. Onlays are also more cost-effective than dental crowns, but are a more indirect restoration. Dr. Adams offers both onlays and dental crowns and she can help you determine which option works with your budget and goals.
