Inlays/Onlays in Gungahlin

Inalys and Onlays at Shine Dentists, GungahlinIf you have a tooth which has lost a significant amount of structure, whether from trauma or decay, inlays or onlays from Shine Dentists, Gungahlin can restore your oral health. They’re similar to dental fillings but are fabricated in the dental laboratory, then put into place. Inlays fit inside of your tooth, while onlays sit right on top of it. They’re available in porcelain, gold or composite. Your dentist can determine your suitability for inlays or onlays as well as discussing which material will work best for your case.

There is a two-appointment process involved for inlays or onlays.

The First Visit

A local anaesthetic is applied to the area. Decay is removed to prepare the tooth, and then a mould is taken to create an impression. A temporary restoration protects your tooth until your device is fabricated in our dental laboratory, which takes up to two weeks.

The Second Appointment

Local anaesthetic is applied again, then the temporary restoration removed and your tooth cleaned. Your dentist will place the new device to ensure a perfect fit and appearance. Once you’re satisfied with the placement, it will be cemented to the tooth.

Schedule your time with our gentle, experienced team today! Early and late opening hours are available to accommodate your schedule.
