Inlays and Onlays in Knutsford


Inlays and Onlays are dental devices designed to provide additional strength and support to the posterior teeth. Superior Smiles offers an Inlay and Onlay treatment as a solution for molars moderately damaged by trauma or decay.

An inlay, cemented within the corners of cusps of your tooth, can fill up gaps and prevent the tooth from further decay. An Onlay is placed to overlap the tooth’s biting surface or one or more of its cusps. They can provide extensive coverage to a fractured or damaged tooth and help to reconstruct your tooth’s profile.

Your dentist can conduct an assessment of your dental needs to determine the optimal treatment. They will also take an impression so each restoration can be individually crafted to suit the shape of your natural tooth.

Inlays and Onlays offer the following benefits:

  • The treatment requires minimal preparatory work to the affected tooth, preserving your natural tooth structure
  • They are fabricated from durable substances such as metal, ceramic, or composite resin, providing a long-lasting solution
  • Ceramic Inlays or Onlays can be closely colour-matched to your natural tooth, offering a virtually invisible treatment
