Inlays / Onlays

Indistinguishable from your natural teeth

Dental inlays and onlays are a way to restore teeth that are too badly decayed or chipped for fillings.

They are durable, strong and indistinguishable from your natural teeth and considered a more conservative option to a crown. They are most commonly used for the back teeth of your mouth.

Inlays and onlays strengthen the tooth structure and are custom made to fit exactly into your tooth cavity and are bonded into place, making them strong and hard wearing.
Inlays are bonded within the centre of the tooth, within the cusps (the raised points on your teeth) or rounded edges of your tooth. Onlays are like inlays, but they are used when the damage to your teeth covers one or more than one cusp or covers the entire chewing surface of your tooth.

 

Restore damaged teeth elegantly

You can sometimes have inlays or onlays instead of fillings to repair damaged teeth. Fillings are soft to begin with and are moulded in the tooth which has been shaped to take and hold the filling.

Inlays and onlays are made outside the mouth, usually in a dental laboratory, and then glued to the tooth in the surgery.

An inlay sits in a hole in the tooth. An onlay sits on the tooth and builds up its shape. Inlays and onlays can be made in tooth-coloured porcelain, gold or a white filling material called composite.

Different materials are suitable for different parts of the mouth and different parts of the teeth. Inlays and onlays are strong and can last longer than fillings. They are especially suitable for the chewing surfaces of back teeth and for large repairs to front teeth, where it can be difficult to make a white filling look natural. Your dentist can match the colour to your other teeth.

Restorations that are virtually invisible

Our high-quality inlays and onlays will blend in beautifully with your natural tooth colour, creating a restoration that is virtually invisible.

Preparing your tooth for an inlay takes away less of the natural material than a crown does. Inlays can be an especially effective treatment option in areas where heavy chewing occurs, to provide a strong, hard wearing restoration.

If the damage to your tooth is extensive, a dental crown may be a better option. However, as crowns require a larger amount of tooth structure to be removed, dental inlays and onlays are a much-preferred treatment.
Our team is here to help and guide you through your options.

I've been registered with Mansion House Dental for a number of years now. I cannot fault the level of patient care and service provided by Dr Qasim Abbasi and his colleagues. When it comes to other private practices, you're normally given the hard upsell by dentists (particularly on cosmetic procedures). But at Mansion House Dental they have always put my long term wellbeing first.

Could not be happier with the service received from Dr. Abbasi. Visited from a colleague's referral, was cautious given the standard of service and professionalism from some of the practices near by. Very friendly and thoughtful practice, would recommend to anyone working in the city.

I’ve been to Mansion House Dental a number of times this year and on every occasion the care I have received from Dr Qasim and the rest of the team has been excellent. Dr Qasim is very knowledgeable and he always takes time to answer my questions and explain different treatment options clearly. The facilities are clean and modern and appointment times are flexible. I highly recommend this practise for both routine check ups and whitening.

I highly recommend this dental practice! My doctor was Qasim Abbasi and I can tell he has a great attention to detail and high intrinsic motivation to deliver the best outcome for his patients. Over the past couple of months I had a series of visits I was always amazed by his professionalism and attitude when challenged with complex issues.

I can’t rate this practice highly enough - I had Invisalign on both upper and lower arches, plus whitening and a cosmetic filling for a chipped tooth. I also had lingual retainers. Every step of the process was explained to me upfront, there were no hidden costs, and service was really professional and friendly. I had quite a few queries and they were all responded to super quickly (usually same day.) I am recommending to friends and wouldn’t hesitate to come back - thank you!!

A Highly skilled and modern practice
