Dentists use inlays and onlays to repair cavities that are too large for a filling but not significant enough to justify a crown or a cap. They will stop tooth decay before it becomes more serious, preventing the need for more invasive treatment.
You will need two appointments to have an inlay or onlay fitted. The dentist will take an impression of the tooth at your initial appointment and send it to a lab, where a technician will create your inlay or onlay. At your second appointment, the dentist will fit the inlay or onlay to your tooth. Inlays and onlays come in a range of materials, including porcelain or a composite resin blend that matches your natural tooth colour.
All adult patients can opt to join Denplan Essentials from their very first visit. Those wanting more inclusive cover can choose Denplan Care instead. Following an assessment, your dentist will advise which group you will be able to join.Read More
