Inlays & Onlays Ottawa, ON

Dental Inlays & OnlaysAn Overview

Inlay & onlays are effective treatment options for mild to moderate tooth decay. A more conservative treatment than dental crowns and more durable than dental fillings, inlay & onlays are a preferred method for restoring a tooth.

Dental Inlay & onlays are made of high-quality professional grade dental porcelain. Dental porcelain is highly durable and is resistant to staining and future decay. The porcelain can be colour matched to blend with your natural tooth enamel for a seamless and natural appearance.

CEREC Same Day Dentistry

With CEREC CAD/CAM technology, dental restorations like inlay, onlays, and dental crowns can now be designed and fabricated in just one visit. CEREC technology uses digital imaging and 3-D computer models to design your inlay or onlay for a precise and comfortable fit. The CEREC machine translates the digital images of the mouth and designs and mills the restoration on site at our dentist office.

CEREC technology streamlines the dental restoration process. CEREC eliminates the need for an outside dental lab as well as multiple visits to the dentist. CEREC creates durable, natural dental restorations.

Dental Inlays & Onlays What to Expect

The tooth will first be cleaned and cleared of all decayed tissue. Once clean, the dentist will begin the designing process for the inlay or onlay needed to restore oral health.

Using CEREC sculpting technology, and digital blue-ray imaging, Dr. Barakat will create 3-D models of your teeth to help build a precise treatment plan. These images are transferred to the CEREC computer to create a 3-D model of the affected area. With these images, CEREC fabricates a porcelain restoration to the exact specifications needed.

The inlay or onlay will precisely fit in the affected area. This helps to seal out the potential future decay and reinforces the stability of the tooth structure. Once the patient is satisfied with the fit and colour of the restoration, the inlay or onlay will be permanently bonded to the tooth
