Porcelain Inlays & Onlays in Aurora

Porcelain inlays and onlays provide cosmetic restorations for back teeth that have suffered serious decay or damage. Both provide extra strength and are custom fit to your teeth by your cosmetic dentist in Aurora, allowing greater comfort and a more natural appearance.

The Difference between Inlays and Onlays

Sometimes patients present with a tooth in need of repair. The damage, however, may be too great for just a tooth-colored filling, but not extensive enough to warrant a dental crown. In this case, Dr. D’Amico or Dr. Mauck will recommend either an inlay or an onlay. Inlays fit within the confines of the cusps of a tooth, while an onlay covers one or more cusps and may even extend over the edge of a tooth. Inlays essentially replace fillings as an option for smaller cavities, and onlays are used when damage is more extensive.

The Advantages of Inlays and Onlays

The beauty of porcelain inlays and onlays is that they offer a cosmetic option for fixing dental damage, but they don't sacrifice strength. They reinforce and stabilize your natural tooth for a conservative fix while blending in and giving you a natural look. Suffering from decay and cavities? Ask us about porcelain inlays and onlays as an option for reversing the damage and providing ongoing protection.

Dental Restoration in Aurora

Normally, inlays and onlays are both manufactured off-site in a dental lab. In this case, your Aurora dentist prepares the tooth and takes a molded impression that the lab uses to fabricate the restoration. While this happens, we place a temporary inlay or onlay on the tooth. When the permanent restoration is ready, you’ll return to our office for the final step when the inlay or onlay is cemented into place.

Alternatively, we also offer inlays and onlays in an hour if preferred. Using our E4D unit, we can use CAD/CAM technology to create your custom porcelain inlays and onlays in our office during a single visit. First, a digital impression is taken of your tooth and used by the E4D computerized system to design your dental restorations. This design includes the exact size, shape and color of the inlay or onlay. No detail is missed; every pit and fissure is part of the design.

Next, the design is forwarded to the milling unit where your restoration is carved out of porcelain blocks. At the end of your appointment, the restoration is placed and you are free to leave without having to schedule a second appointment. We can also use the E4D technology to create porcelain crowns in about one hour.
