Onlays & Inlays

The art of preserving your natural teeth

Decayed or damaged teeth can often be restored with composite fillings that look natural. However, if the damage is too extensive, then we would recommend an inlay or onlay. This is a method of preserving teeth, bridging the gap between a filling and needing to cover the tooth entirely. They can help stop decay before it develops into something more serious.

Inlays sit inside the tooth acting to effectively fill the hole that has been created after decay removal. Onlays cover a larger area of the tooth and are better suited to bigger cavities and are used to recreate the natural shape of the tooth. The process involves a meticulous modelling of the teeth and we only use high-quality porcelain and composite materials that are then crafted in a specialist laboratory to create the inlays and onlays. 

At Renovo dental, we can remove old fillings, clean out any existing decay and replace unsightly dark patches with a more natural and aesthetically pleasing finish.
