Inlays & Onlays

Inlays & Onlays at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic in Flushing, NY

Enhance the health and appearance of your teeth with inlays and onlays from Infinity Smiles Dental. Located in Flushing, NY, our clinic specializes in these conservative restorations that strengthen teeth and provide a great alternative to full crowns when your tooth needs more than a filling but less than a crown.

What are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are types of dental restorations often used to repair rear teeth with mild to moderate decay or damaged surfaces. Inlays fit within the contours of the tooth, while onlays cover one or more cusps (the raised portions) of the tooth. Both are made from durable materials like porcelain, composite resin, or gold.

The Inlays & Onlays Process

Evaluation and Mold Making: The process starts with a thorough evaluation of your tooth to determine the extent of the repair needed. We then take a precise mold of your tooth, which is used to create your custom inlay or onlay.

Tooth Preparation: The damaged or decayed area of the tooth is carefully removed to prepare for the inlay or onlay.

Custom Creation: Your inlay or onlay is crafted in a dental lab to match your tooth's exact shape, size, and color. During this time, a temporary restoration may be placed to protect the tooth.

Fitting and Bonding: Once your custom inlay or onlay is ready, we'll ensure it fits perfectly without affecting your bite. It is then bonded securely to your tooth and polished for a smooth, natural appearance.

Our cosmetic dentists at NY Smile Creators are dedicated to giving you back the smile you deserve - call us today at (718) 550-3541 to find out more about how inlays and onlays can help you.

Benefits of Inlays & Onlays

  • Conservative Treatment: Unlike crowns, inlays and onlays require less tooth structure to be removed, helping to preserve more of your natural tooth.
  • Durability: Made from strong, hard-wearing materials, inlays and onlays are durable and can last much longer than regular fillings.
  • Improved Aesthetics: They are crafted to blend seamlessly with your natural tooth, enhancing the appearance of your smile.
  • Strengthen Teeth: Inlays and onlays increase the strength of a tooth by up to 75%, improving its function and prolonging its life.
