Inlays and Onlays at BIDC Thailand Dental Center

Inlays and onlays or overlays, are sometimes called indirect composites, are done when there is missing tooth structure missing that cannot be replaced with composite filling material due to its larger size.

When inlays and onlays are done, decay is removed and a impression of the prepared surface is taken. This mold impression is sent to the dental laboratory to create the inlay and only. On delivery, the inlay or onlay peice is bonded to the preped tooth, restoring its original size, shape and color.
