LILLYBROOK DENTAL

What are inlays/onlays?

Inlays and onlays are restorative indirect dental treatments. Unlike regular white fillings, inlays and onlays are prepared outside the mouth and made as a single piece customised to the shape and size of a tooth cavity. Inlays and onlays are not suitable for all teeth. They are most commonly used for molar and premolar teeth which have experienced significant damage and could not sustain a direct treatment, such as a white filling.

 

There are slight differences to the application of inlays and onlays and the tooth area they cover:

  • An inlay is applied within the confines of the tooth structure
  • An onlay covers the external tooth structure and protects it.

Various materials are used for inlays and onlays. In many instances porcelain is used because of the similarity with natural tooth colour, however zirconia is used frequently now. Depending on the individual’s specific requirement, inlays and onlays can be prepared and fitted in a single visit.

LILLYBROOK DENTAL

Are inlays better than fillings?

Although an inlay and filling each has benefits, an inlay has certain advantages over a direct filling, including:

  • Eliminates the issue of shrinkage sometimes experienced with fillings
  • Wide choice of materials, including gold, porcelain, zirconia, and nickel-chrome
  • Offer greater protection against bite force and decay
  • Allow for a more precise fitting and contouring against the gum, making it easier to clean and keep gum disease at bay

Onlays share the same benefits as inlays. They are often used when a white or metal filling is considered inadequate. Designed to incorporate – or cover – the cusps of the tooth, onlays allow tooth structure to be preserved.

The team at Lillybrook Dental is experienced at designed and fitting inlays and onlays. Before commencing any treatment, we will always take time to understand your unique needs and tailor a treatment solution that works for you. If you are considering inlays and onlays as a treatment option, why not book an appointment to speak one of our dentists.

Any invasive or surgical procedure has risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Individual results can vary.

Testimonials

I’ve been to many different dentists over the years, and I would have to say that this is up there with the best! The staff are so professional, and yet so very friendly. The dentist himself, was also very friendly and did such a great job. I would highly recommend this dental surgery

Jodie

I can’t recommend Dr Raj and the team at Lillybrook Dental enough! I was 35 weeks pregnant and developed a terrible toothache (the worst timing!), they fit me in quickly and did everything they could to save the tooth, giving me all options and no pressure. I ended up needing a root canal and crown and was very upset and worried about the pain, they reassured me and despite the outcome for my tooth I had a great experience. The crown has been fitted and I am so happy with the end product. Highly recommend!

Ashley

Having been to various practices over time, and addressing issues with a “patch-up” approach, it was time to consult with a Dentist who could advise on a treatment plan that would provide longterm results. A friend recommended Lillybrook Dental. After a very thorough initial appointment Dr Raj put together a staged treatment plan to restore my teeth to their former glory. Six months later, thanks to Dr Raj and his team, I have my smile back. Most importantly I can eat the food I want without any fear of causing days of pain to my teeth or gums. I am so glad I put my trust in Lillybrook Dental. Thanks!

Steve

From the moment I walked in until the moment I left I felt very cared for by all of the staff I encountered. Everything was explained in detail as to what my options were and what the best choice would be for my treatmemt. Extremely accommodating and so kind, I felt completely at ease. With payment options such as Afterpay, Zippay and Openpay available, making it much more comfortable when it comes time to pay the bill.

Kerrie

I am a very anxious patient and Dr Raji is very calming and gentle in her care with me. She is also very patient with me and would highly recommend coming to Lillybrook Dental Surgery as the whole crew is lovely !

Hayley

Dr Raj and his team are always gentle, professional and very efficient. My husband and I have both had extractions done and Raj is so proficient at this.

The team are so kind and assuring as well which helps you feel calm. We totally recommend them for all your family dental care.

Melissa

I have nothing put praise for the friendliness of Ena on the front desk she is just the right person for the job. Then we have Dr Raj who has been very kind and gentle with doing any dental work on my teeth. He explains every bit of work that needs to be done in layman terms which is great and his dental nurse is very caring.


Thanks for the great experience and will continue visiting your Surgery .
