The broken or decayed tooth is prepared. An Inlay is made and fitted to the tooth. White or Gold inlays are available.
Depending on the extent of the repair required sometimes the full top surface of the tooth is removed. A Full Onlay is then produced to replace the biting surface.
After an impression is made of your tooth, the inlay or onlay will be made in a dental laboratory by a technician.
While these are being made, you will wear a temporary filling. When your inlay or onlay is ready we will bond it into place using a special adhesive, after removing the temporary filling. Your restored tooth will not only look like a real tooth but also function like one, allowing you to bite, chew and eat without any discomfort.
