When you visit our dentist for a checkup, they might recommend you have restoration of your teeth. There is various type of restoration and only one of them, others include, the filling, the inlay, the crown, and the implant.
To understand only restoration, let us first have an overview of other types of restoration, and we begin by looking at the filling. When there is tooth decay, our dentists begin by drilling the decayed part of the tooth out and then replacing it with filling material. For more information contact us.
Procedure for Dental Onlay
To fit and place an onlay, our dentist only requires two dental appointments. The first involves our dentists numbing a portion of our patient's mouth with a local anesthetic; after numbing, they will remove the decayed portion to prepare the patient's tooth for the onlay. An impression is taken to send to the laboratory for the creation of the permanent restoration. Finally, we will protect the patient's tooth with a temporary inlay until the next appointment.
The second is scheduled after the onlay is fabricated. Our dentist will remove the temporary inlay, clean the tooth, place the restoration, and ensure it's fitting.
Effects of an Onlay
Our dentists highly recommend that our patients who have broken teeth visit us for onlay procedure so that the broken teeth can be repaired. Onlay also applies to patients with tooth dislocation. Onlays are made from durable materials that look like natural teeth, and the fit is more secure than a filling.
For these reasons we recommend patients with decayed or broken teeth feel free to visit our office or call us for an onlay procedure, and this will restore their smile, and they shall feel comfortable, the problems shall be solved by an onlay procedure, which is very cheap, once and for all!
