Dental inlays and onlays allow our dentist to improve your smile simply. Unlike other procedures, inlays and onlays are both conservative treatments that preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible.

Depending on the patient, our dentist may recommend this treatment over a full crown or other dental restoration. Because dental inlays and onlays are more conservative, they can repair more than a simple filling without removing too much of the enamel. Dental inlays and onlays can be made of many different materials, including composite resins that match the color of your natural teeth.
Inlays and onlays are both fitted to top, biting surfaces of the tooth. While inlays only restore the center of the tooth, onlays can stretch and cover its edges. Both can last up to thirty years, requiring less replacement than traditional fillings.
Typically, each dental inlay or onlay appointment in St. George, Utah, takes two visits. During the first, Dr. Bryce Alldredge will complete an impression of the teeth. From these, a dental inlay or onlay can be created, which is fitted during your second appointment. Find out more about planning a dental inlay or onlay; contact About Dental Care today!
