Dental inlays and onlays are a step up from a filling. They are a great way to restore your beautiful smile, when a tooth has more serious damage or decay. They can be used to repair cracks and fractures to preserve the remaining tooth.
We use inlays to repair the chewing surface of a tooth and to mend cavities where a traditional filling wouldn’t be strong enough. Onlays are similar, but they are bonded over the tooth. Made from dental porcelain, we are able to customise the material to match the shape and colour of your existing teeth, giving them a flawless finish.
Inlays and onlays are extremely durable and can last up to 30 years. Carefully fitted by our expert team, your onlay will feel like your natural tooth and can even improve your smile. At Alan Wilson Dentistry inlays and onlays are fabricated onsite, using our state-of-the-art Cerec technology and can be produced and fitted in one visit.
