Inlays and Onlays in
Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are designed to restore a moderately damaged tooth. They can be used to repair teeth in cases when there is too much damage for a traditional filling, but a full dental crown is not necessary.
Inlays and onlays are a highly effective restoration method. They can be made using composite resin or porcelain materials. When damage to the chewing surface is solely between the points or cusps, an inlay is used. If the restoration needs to be used to treat decay or damage that includes one or more cusps, that is a dental onlay.
This type of restoration is also known as an indirect filling because they are custom-made outside of the mouth. When placing an inlay or onlay, first the tooth will be cleaned, and the damaged portion will be removed. Next, impressions or digital images will be taken of the tooth. This will be used to create your custom restoration which will be placed on your tooth using a dental bonding material.
Advantages of restoring a tooth using Inlays and Onlays:
- Do not contract or expand with temperature changes
- Strong and durable
- Prevent the need for more extensive treatment later
- Can replace old, metal fillings
- Tooth-colored and natural-looking

This was the best dental experience of my life. Dr. Troy Kemahli was very meticulous, knowledgeable, and knows how to give almost painless shots. He has the latest hi-tech equipment and the office staff were well trained and friendly. And their prices are very reasonable 😁. I highly recommend Dr. Troy Kemahli at Wauchula Dental!
They are really great!!! I had all of my kids with me and they were really helpful. And if i had any problems they did everything they could to help me. I strongly recommend them to anyone.
Everyone is so kind and wonderful. Very happy with the service I received there. They were able to get me in quickly and take care of my broken tooth the same day.
Dr. Kemahli has been making a difference in the community through his volunteer efforts.
