Inlays & Onlays

Stronger restoration options

Inlays Liverpool

Inlays and onlays are two types of restorations that your dentist can suggest if you have a cavity in your tooth that needs to be filled. An inlay is a small filling that fits into the biting surface of a tooth while an onlay covers a larger area of the tooth and is better suited to bigger cavities. For many years, gold has been used to make inlays and onlays because it is a hard material and lasts for a long time. Nowadays, tooth-coloured porcelain is also used and gives the restored tooth a more natural look, which many patients prefer.

Onlays Liverpool

Inlays and onlays can be made in a dental laboratory by a technician, with the help of impressions taken of your teeth. While these are being made, you will wear a temporary filling. When your inlay or onlay is ready your dentist will glue it into place using a special adhesive, after removing the temporary filling.

Thanks to advances in digital technology (called CAD/CAM) porcelain inlays can be made at the dental practice using a special milling machine known as CEREC. This means you will need less visits to the dentist to have your tooth restored.

This dental practice is outstanding. I am informed and involved in every aspect of my dental care. My dentist, is professional and understanding. I have complete faith in them and the rest of the staff. The surgery is modern and spotlessly clean and welcoming. A pleasure to go to the dentist actually!

This dentisit is fantastic with children and adults alike. As soon as you enter the staff are lovely and friendly the NHS dentist took their time with my son who is terrified of the dentist not any more, the dentist explained everything slowly and said to my son it didn’t matter how long it took there was no rush…they made my son feel relaxed, and they did the preocedure successfully, also instead of telling me about the usual sweets drinks etc the dentist directly told both my children. Very professional

This dentist is excellent they are so child friendly my son was terrified of the dentist and this dentist spent ages with them going through everything with my son, they did not rush my son and made appoint of saying they didn’t mind staying all night as long as my son was happy. Both my children are on first name terms with them and they think they are really cool, they make them laugh, but always explains about sugar and drinks and the damage they do. My son has completely changed his diet no fizzy drinks and very little sweet things, this was directly from a dentist visit here a few years ago They are great with adults too as I go their myself. Thanks to all the staff!
