Inlays & Onlays
At Arbour Lake Dental Care in Northwest (NW) Calgary, we can repair teeth with a cosmetic restoration called inlays and onlays.
What are Inlays & Onlays?
Inlays and onlays are cosmetic options that fix broken, misshapen, chipped, asymmetrical or damaged teeth.
These treatment options are custom-made and can match the original shape of your tooth. Inlays and onlays are usually virtually indistinguishable from natural enamel.
What is the difference between an Onlay and an Inlay?
Inlays: Fit just inside the bumps of a tooth, similar to a composite filling.
Onlays: Cover more surface area than inlays as they wrap over one or more edges of the tooth.
