Inlays and Onlays: Restorative Dental Solutions for Strong and Beautiful Teeth at Merton Dental

Welcome to Merton Dental Wimbledon, where we are committed to providing exceptional dental care in the UK. Our goal is to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. In this article, we will explore the benefits of inlays and onlays as restorative dental solutions that can strengthen and enhance the appearance of your teeth.

Inlays and onlays are custom-made dental restorations used to repair teeth with moderate to extensive decay or damage. Made from durable materials like porcelain, composite resin, or gold, they are precisely fitted within or on the surface of the affected tooth.

The benefits of inlays and onlays are numerous. One significant advantage is their conservative approach to restorative dentistry, as they require minimal removal of healthy tooth enamel. This preservation of natural tooth structure results in a stronger and healthier tooth overall.

Inlays and onlays are highly durable and resistant to wear. They can withstand the forces of biting and chewing, providing long-lasting strength and stability to the treated tooth. Additionally, their natural appearance makes them an excellent choice for visible teeth, seamlessly blending with your smile.

These restorations also offer protection against tooth decay and fractures. By creating a protective barrier, they seal out bacteria and strengthen weakened tooth structures, reducing the risk of further damage.

The process of receiving inlays or onlays at Merton Dental begins with a comprehensive dental examination. Our experienced dentists will assess your teeth to determine if these restorations are the appropriate treatment option for you.

If inlays or onlays are recommended, we will carefully plan the treatment process. This may involve taking impressions of your teeth and preparing the affected tooth by removing any decay or damage.

Our skilled dental laboratory technicians will then create custom-made inlays or onlays that precisely fit your tooth. During a subsequent visit, these restorations will be securely bonded to the tooth surface, ensuring a strong and long-lasting result.

Caring for your inlays and onlays is essential for their longevity. Maintaining good oral hygiene practices, such as regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups, will help preserve the integrity of your restorations and ensure optimal oral health.

At Merton Dental Wimbledon, we offer inlays and onlays as effective restorative dental solutions, combining strength, durability, and aesthetics. Our skilled dentists will work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs, enhancing your smile and restoring the health of your teeth.
