Inlays & Onlays

Do you suffer from chipped, cracked or decayed teeth? My Dental Clinic in Calgary may be able to help; we offer inlays and onlays to our patients with damage to their teeth. In certain cases, traditional fillings may cause further damage to a tooth, making an inlay or an onlay the right choice for dental treatment. Both of these treatments involve using tooth-colored materials to cover damage to a tooth but may differ in size and extent of application.

What is a Dental Inlay?

These are laid into, instead of over teeth. They are used for repairing damage to teeth that are within the cusps of the chewing surface.

What is a Dental Onlay?

These indirect fillings are laid over your teeth, instead of into and are appropriate for repairing the damage that exceeds the cusps of your teeth.

Both of these dental treatment options can increase the integrity of your tooth structure while making your smile more attractive and preventing further damage from decay. Without treatment, decayed, chipped or cracked teeth can become an even bigger problem, resulting in more decay, damage, and bacteria. It can also eventually result in more costly and invasive dental treatment options.

If you have a tooth that has been cracked, chipped or suffers from decay, contact My Dental Clinic in Calgary today! We’d be happy to schedule an appointment to examine your teeth and overall oral health and discuss whether you are a candidate for dental inlays or onlays.
