When a tooth or set of teeth are so badly worn that they can’t support a directly placed filling, dental inlays & onlays could be the answer.

Dental inlays & onlays are custom-made gold or porcelain pieces that fit on the biting surface of a tooth, protecting it against biting forces and decay. Dental inlays are placed inside the tooth while dental onlays fit over the tooth.

Natural porcelain inlays & onlays

While gold inlays & onlays have an excellent track record, advances in dental technology have seen the arrival of porcelain versions that rival its strength.

However, the real advantage with porcelain inlays & onlays is that they are much more aesthetically pleasing, because they can be made to look and feel like enamel.

At K2 Dental we custom-make your porcelain inlays & onlays, resulting in a fast turnaround, a perfect fit and an exact colour match.

The benefits of inlays & onlays

Inlays & onlays provide a much better resistance than fillings against biting forces, but there are other benefits too:

  • Super-tight fit, eliminating the chance of decay
  • Reduced chance of gum disease
  • Long-lasting fit
  • Easy to clean, resulting in better dental hygiene.

Fitting your inlays & onlays

After an initial consultation to work out a treatment plan that suits you, the process of fitting inlays & onlays is carried out over two appointments:

▸ Appointment 1:

We prepare the tooth, take impressions and place a temporary inlay or onlay. We use the impressions to custom-make your inlays & onlays in our lab.

▸ Appointment 2:

After checking the aesthetic result and that your new bite is working well, we bond the permanent inlay or onlay to your tooth.
