Teeth cavities and damaged teeth treatment in Ellenbrook, WA.
Difference Between Inlays And Onlays
While both inlays and onlays are considered indirect restorations, there are some key differences between them.
- Inlays are used to address cavities or other damage that do not involve the cusps of the teeth, while onlays cover a larger surface area and may include the cusps.
- Typically onlays are also more expensive than inlays, as they are used for more severe damage that a filling or small inlay cannot address.
In general, the difference between these two options comes down to the amount of surface area that needs to be restored. Your dentist can help you determine which option is best for your specific needs.

A Comprehensive Guide to Restorative Dentistry
As a leading provider of dental surgery and general services, our goal is to help you achieve optimal oral health and a beautiful smile.
In this guide, we will focus on the benefits and differences between inlays and onlays, which are comfortable dental restorations that can repair damaged or decayed teeth while preserving natural tooth structure.
Our experienced dentists can detect the early signs of tooth decay and recommend the best treatment options, whether it is a tooth filling, dental crown, inlay, or onlay.
The procedure for getting inlays and onlays begins by consulting a qualified dental provider in Ellenbrook WA. During the initial consultation, the dentist will examine your teeth to determine if inlays and onlays are suitable treatment options for you. Then they will prepare your teeth by removing any damaged or decayed areas.
Next, your teeth impression will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory where the inlays or onlays will be custom-made. While waiting for the inlays or onlays to be fabricated, the patient may receive a temporary filling to cover the prepared tooth.
Once the inlays or onlays are ready, the dentist will bond them to the tooth with a strong dental adhesive. After the procedure, the patient will receive instructions for proper aftercare, including how to protect them from damage.
