Inlays and onlays are types of restorations that help to restore a tooth to its original size and shape. They’re a medium between a filling and a crown, since they’re meant to replace larger areas of a tooth than a filling but aren’t as large as a dental crown. They can last for decades with proper care and are designed to look like your own teeth. The process to both make and place inlays and onlays is quite easy and quick.
Our dentists in Chicago can perform an exam to determine if you’ll benefit from an inlay or onlay. Most patients who need this type of restoration can safely have the procedure done in our downtown Chicago dental office. Our goal is to provide you with a full, even smile that is comfortable and healthy. You’re a good candidate for the procedure if you want a more durable restoration that you won’t need to worry about for years.
