Dentares Smile Clinic offers modern restoration methods such as the dental inlay/onlay treatment that is cost-effective and aesthetic. It’s Dentares’ primary concern to ensure all inlays/onlays treatments are functional and aesthetic at a cost-effective price. Amalgam is a silver alloy filling material traditionally used for these treatments. But with the introduction of colour-matchable composite resins, inlays/onlays appear natural and aesthetic. Inlay and onlay restorations can be produced fast with CEREC composite or within 1-2 days with CAD/CAM Emax.
What is Dental Inlays/Onlays?
Dental inlays/onlays in Turkey are dental restorations that partially cover decayed parts of teeth. An inlay is bigger than a dental filling and covering the centre of the tooth. An onlay is bigger than an inlay, covering the centre and topside or multiple sides of a tooth. The onlay can be considered a partial crown.
CEREC filling material or Emax material can be used to stabilise the integrity and aesthetic of teeth suffering from decay. CEREC is an acronym that stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. Bacteria and food particles can penetrate the tooth’s enamel and over time invade the dentin and pulp of the tooth slowly compromising the integrity of the tooth. This can be incredibly painful depending on the advancement of decay. So the dentist removes infected tissue and replaces it with an inlay or onlay depending on the area of decay. If a patient presents with decay all around the tooth, then a crown could be a more suitable treatment.
Generally, inlays/onlays are given to premolars and molars whereas incisors are treated with crowns or veneers.
