The process of getting an inlay or onlay is very similar to the process of getting a crown. During your first visit, Dr. Santana will numb the area being treated and clean out the decayed tooth. Dr. Santana will ensure that all decay is removed to avoid further decay or infection. Once all the decay has been removed, your dentist will take an impression of the remaining tooth area for the dental laboratory. A temporary filling will be placed until you visit us for your second appointment.
During your second visit, our dentist will numb the area, remove the temporary filling, and bond your permanent inlay or onlay to your natural tooth. Proper daily brushing, flossing, and regular professional cleanings at our dental office, your inlay or onlay restoration can last for many years.
