Inlays and Onlays Glenview
Inlays and Onlays are customized restorations that address the loss of cavities and tooth structure that are too large to be restored by a simple filling. The process of making an inlay is very similar to the design of crowns. After the tooth is prepared, inlays are bonded to them.
There are a variety of materials that make up inlays, including gold, porcelain, and composite resins. Porcelain and composite inlays and onlays are cosmetic alternatives to fillings and durable compared to regular white fillings. Gold inlays and onlays are also suitable alternatives, but their appearance makes them less popular.
Your dentist will inform you if an inlay or onlay is a viable treatment option for you. In general, inlays and onlays can replace most back teeth fillings and are frequently preferred over conventional fillings. Simultaneously, they are more conservative than crowns.
In terms of costs, inlays and onlays are comparable to crowns because their production processes are similar. But when considering the longevity of inlays and onlays, they can practically cost less than traditional fillings.
