Smiling man with Inlays / Onlays Dentistry

Inlays/Onlays in Oklahoma City

Inlays and onlays are restorations used to restore teeth with compromised large existing fillings or extensive cavity.

When the chewing surfaces of back teeth are damaged due to decay, breaks, fractures or have old fillings that need to be replaced, an inlay or onlay is often the recommended repair. Inlays and onlays typically require less tooth be removed, making them an ideal alternative to silver fillings and crowns.

An onlay is used to repair a tooth when the chewing cusps have been affected. Otherwise, inlays and onlays are essentially the same:

  • Custom-made of composite materials (gentle to opposing teeth, prone to more wear and discoloration), gold (strongest, most expensive, not natural-looking), or tooth-colored porcelain (most natural-looking, wear well)

  • Permanently cemented into the tooth

  • Highly durable and long-lasting

After evaluating the damaged tooth, your dentist here at Timberview Family Dentistry will help you make the best decision for your budget and your mouth – and give you a long-lasting, joyful smile. Call our Oklahoma City office at (405) 737-0404 to learn more.
