Inlays and Onlays can be used in the place of a filling. Unlike soft fillings, which are molded into the shape of the mouth, inlays and Onlays are made were usually made a dental laboratory and then glued to the tooth by Dr.Jean-Jacques Edderai but not any more with the new CEREC.
An inlay sits in a hole in the tooth and an Onlay sits on the tooth. They can be made tooth-colored, gold or composite. Different materials are suitable for different parts of the mouth and parts of the teeth.
The Dental Inlay Procedure
You will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area and any old fillings or damaged bits of tooth will be removed. A digital mould will be taken of the tooth to be repaired which will guide the computer in making the inlay or Onlay, and then the restoration will be glued into position. Dr. Edderai may make minor adjustments to ensure that the tooth is comfortable to bite on. Inlays and Onlays are very strong, often lasting longer than a "traditional" filling and are useful for back teeth and large repairs for front teeth where it can be difficult to make a white filling look natural.
