At this point, pretty much everyone is aware of the benefits of brushing and flossing your teeth. It is a fact that brushing and flossing is a good thing, and failing to do so can only result in bad things happening. Even with this knowledge, some people do not give their teeth the care that is needed to ensure good oral health. Others just have teeth that are naturally susceptible to decay. Regardless of the reason why your teeth are damaged, inlays and onlays offer relief to patients, repairing any teeth that are in need of help.

What are Dental Inlays and Onlays?

Inlays and onlays are similar to the cavities used for dental fillings in that they work to repair damage caused by tooth decay or general wear and tear. However, dental inlays and onlays actually remove the damaged portion of your teeth. Then, a small replacement is crafted in a lab to replace the removed portion. Once the replacement piece is complete, it is attached to your tooth. 

The primary difference between a dental inlay and an onlay is the scope and location of the tooth damage in need of repair. Dental inlays treat any damage that exists solely in the center surface of a tooth, while an onlay can treat damage that exists closer to the tip of the tooth

Advantages of Having Inlays and Onlays Installed

There are many advantages to having inlays and onlays installed. This method of treating tooth decay preserves more of your natural tooth, helping to keep your mouth natural and healthy. Keeping more of your natural tooth helps to strengthen the existing tooth, providing more stability to the rest of your mouth. Inlays and onlays also feature a customized replacement tooth piece that was designed in a lab to perfectly fit your tooth and mouth. This cutting-edge replacement tooth offers more resistance to staining and protects the tooth from additional decay.

Inlays and Onlays Cost in Tijuana

Prices may vary based on the extent of the damage done to the tooth, so the best way to get an accurate quote of inlays and onlays cost is by scheduling a consultation. Regardless of the cost of inlays and onlays at BioDental Care in Tijuana, you can be confident in knowing it is far less than what the cost would be in the United States.

How are Inlays and Onlays Applied?

Inlays and onlays will typically require two separate dentist appointments. During the first appointment, the damaged section of the tooth will be removed, preparing the tooth for the inlay or onlay to be placed. Then, an impression of the tooth is made and sent to the lab in order for the replacement piece to be custom-designed to perfectly fit your mouth. A temporary sealant will be placed on the tooth until the replacement is complete. Once the lab creates the replacement tooth piece, it will be bonded to the tooth and polished until it is smooth.
