Precision Dental Inlays and Onlays for Tooth Restoration

Inlays & Onlays


Foothills Family Dental in Fort Collins, CO 80524, offers dental inlays and onlays as a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution for restoring teeth that have been damaged or decayed. These custom-made restorations are designed to perfectly fit your teeth, providing a stronger, more natural-looking alternative to traditional fillings.

Benefits of Inlays and Onlays

  • Durability: Made from strong materials like porcelain or composite resin, lasting longer than regular fillings.
  • Aesthetics: Custom-crafted to match the color of your natural teeth.
  • Fit and Comfort: Precisely made to fit your tooth with minimal alteration.
  • Tooth Preservation: More of the natural tooth structure is preserved compared to crowns.

Inlays vs Onlays

  • Inlays: Used to fill the space within the cusps of a tooth.
  • Onlays: More extensive, covering one or more cusps or the entire biting surface.

The Procedure

  • Initial Visit: We prepare the tooth and take an impression, which is sent to a dental lab.
  • Temporary Restoration: A temporary restoration is placed until the inlay or onlay is ready.
  • Fitting Appointment: The custom inlay or onlay is securely bonded to the tooth.
  • Adjustments: We make any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and bite alignment.

Caring for Your Inlays and Onlays

Maintain them with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, just like your natural teeth.

Who is a Candidate for Inlays and Onlays?
