Inlays and Onlays at Deluxe Dental: Precision Restorations for Your Teeth

Deluxe Dental is proud to offer inlays and onlays, advanced restorative treatments that provide a strong, durable, and aesthetic solution for tooth repair. Our expert dental team is committed to restoring the integrity of your teeth with these high-quality restorations.

What are Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are types of dental restorations used to repair moderately decayed or damaged teeth. They are custom-made and are more extensive than fillings but less so than crowns.


Inlays fit within the cusps (bumps) of a tooth and are used when the damage or decay does not affect the tooth cusps.


Onlays, sometimes called partial crowns, cover one or more cusps. They are used when the damage is more extensive.

Why Choose Inlays and Onlays at Deluxe Dental?

Opting for inlays and onlays at Deluxe Dental offers several benefits:

  • Durability: They are made from strong, long-lasting materials like porcelain or composite resin, making them more durable than regular fillings.
  • Aesthetics: Custom-made to match the natural color of your teeth, providing a seamless and natural look.
  • Tooth Preservation: They require less removal of the tooth structure than crowns, helping to preserve more of your natural tooth.
  • Improved Oral Health: By restoring damaged teeth, inlays and onlays help to prevent further decay and maintain oral health.

Aftercare: Maintaining Your Restorations

Proper aftercare is essential for the longevity of your inlays and onlays:

  • Oral Hygiene: Maintain regular brushing and flossing to keep your restorations and surrounding teeth clean.
  • Avoid Hard Foods: Be cautious with hard and sticky foods that can damage the restorations.
  • Regular Dental Visits: Regular check-ups at Deluxe Dental are important to monitor the condition of your inlays and onlays and your overall oral health.
  • Wear Protection: If you grind your teeth, consider using a night guard to protect your restorations.
