Enhance Smile Function with Inlays & Onlays in Marriottsville, MD

Dr. Glasper and her team at Revive Dental in Marriottsville, MD, are proud to offer inlays and onlays to restore damaged or decayed teeth to their natural beauty and function. Inlays and onlays are recommended when there is not enough damage to require a full dental crown but extensive enough that the tooth cannot be repaired with a filling.

What Are Dental Inlays and Onlays?

Dental inlays and onlays are also known as partial crowns and are used to repair back teeth with mild to moderate decay or fractured teeth that can be repaired without a crown. If the damage does not reach the cusps of the tooth, an inlay is placed directly onto its surface. If the damage is more extensive, an onlay is used to cover one or more of the tooth cusps. Both dental inlays and dental onlays are precisely created to restore the strength and integrity of the tooth while maintaining a natural appearance.

How Are Inlays & Onlays Placed?

During your initial visit, Dr. Glasper will remove the decayed area or the old filling material and make an impression of the tooth that is sent to a lab where the inlay or onlay is manufactured. At your next appointment, Dr. Glasper will bond the inlay or onlay to the tooth with a strong adhesive. This process is part of our extensive inlays and onlays dental services, which ensure a precise fit and lasting restoration for your teeth.

What are the Benefits of Dental Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are made of durable materials like composite resin or porcelain and, with diligent home care, can last for several decades. They’re made to match the natural color of your teeth to blend seamlessly in with your smile. Their placement requires less removal of the tooth structure, so more of your natural tooth is preserved. Since they are easy to care for, they can help prevent the accumulation of bacteria, enhancing your overall oral health.
