Inlays/Onlays in Coral Gables, Hialeah, Kendall & Hollywood, FL


Dental inlays and onlays are methods of restoring teeth that are not damaged enough for a crown, but that need some extra reinforcement. Usually they are used on back teeth that have suffered mild to moderate dental decay or damage. If the tooth is structurally not strong enough to support a filling, but the damage is not enough to warrant a complete dental crown, an inlay or onlay can be an option for you!

What is an Onlay?

Dr. Claudio Miro

Dental onlays cover the entire biting surface of the tooth and sometimes one or more cusps. It is sometimes referred to as a partial crown.
Treatment stages:

Dental onlays are more durable and generally last longer than dental fillings.

Dental onlays are generally indirect fillings, made in a dental lab based on an impression of the tooth or teeth.

We offer patients a stronger and well-fitting repair for tooth decay or other structural damage.

What is an Inlay?

Dr. Claudio Miro

Dental inlays fill the spaces in between dental cusps at the center of the tooth’s surface.

Treatment stages:

Inlays can repair the chewing surface of your tooth. It is an indirect restoration that is fitted in the center of a tooth’s surface and cemented in place.

Dental inlays are prepared in a dental laboratory based on an impression of the tooth after the decay has been removed.

Inlays are durable and help prolong the life of the tooth and potentially prevent the need for more dental treatments in the future.

What are the Benefits of Inlays & Onlays?

For patients that don’t have a tooth that is damaged to the point of needing a crown, but who’s tooth structure may be compromised with a basic filling, inlays or onlays may be the perfect option for them.
Since inlays and onlays replace the biting surface of the tooth, the material used has to be strong and durable through wear and tear. Most inlays and onlays are more durable than composite or amalgam fillings.

Onlays Can Be an Alternative to Crowns

When a tooth is prepared for onlays, as much of the healthy tooth is saved as possible. If there is minimal to moderate tooth decay, onlays are a less expensive option than a full crown coverage.

What Do Dental Inlays Do?

Dental inlays can repair the chewing surface of your tooth and are especially used if the tooth has used other restorations, like dental fillings. Most inlays are more durable than composite or amalgam fillings.

What Are the Benefits of Inlays/Onlays?

They are durable and can prolong the life of the natural tooth. It can also prevent the need for more dental treatments on that tooth in the future and can help the tooth maintain its strength.
