Inlays and onlays are a more conservative approach than dental crowns are because they don’t require as much of your natural tooth to be removed. This procedure is also considered less invasive an in some cases, which is going to be a better choice for patients. But there are many benefits that stem from inlays and onlays:
Natural looking. Inlays and onlays are made up of a mixture of porcelain and composite resin, which creates a more natural looking appearance.
Durability. Since inlays and onlays are made from a stronger material than crowns, they typically last longer and provide additional support.
Tooth preservation. Because they don’t require your dentist to remove as much of your natural tooth structure, inlays and onlays preserve more of your natural tooth.
Hygiene. Custom-made for each individual tooth, inlays and onlays are easier to clean and bacteria is less likely to get into the affected area after treatment.
Expansion. Inlays and onlays don’t expand and contract in the same way as filling materials, reducing the stresses on the tooth.
