Welcome to Teeth At Tiong Bahru, your trusted destination for exceptional dental services in the heart of Singapore! With a team of highly skilled professionals, we aim to provide top-quality care in General Dentistry, Dentists, and Orthodontics to help you achieve optimal oral health and a dazzling smile. In this article, we will delve into the world of inlays and onlays, explaining their benefits and how they can be a game-changer for your dental health.
Understanding Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are restorative dental procedures that serve as a conservative yet effective alternative to traditional fillings and crowns. They are commonly used to address tooth decay, structural damage, or cracks in the teeth. Inlays are designed to fit within the cusps of the tooth while onlays extend to cover a larger surface area, including one or more cusps.
At Teeth At Tiong Bahru, our expert dentists specialize in creating personalized inlays and onlays using the latest advancements in dental technology. We prioritize precision and aesthetics, ensuring the restorations seamlessly match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, resulting in a natural and long-lasting solution.
Benefits of Inlays and Onlays
1. Durability: Inlays and onlays are made from strong and durable materials such as porcelain, composite resin, or gold. These materials are known for their longevity, providing a durable and resilient restoration that can withstand regular chewing forces.
2. Tooth Preservation: Unlike traditional fillings that require removing a significant amount of healthy tooth structure, inlays and onlays allow for conservative preservation. Only the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth is removed, preserving the majority of your natural tooth structure.
3. Aesthetics: With their ability to closely match the color and translucency of your natural teeth, inlays and onlays offer a highly aesthetic solution. Say goodbye to unsightly metal fillings and welcome a beautiful, natural-looking smile you'll be proud to show off.
4. Strength and Function: Inlays and onlays provide excellent functional restoration, restoring the strength and integrity of the tooth. Whether you need to restore a molar or a premolar, these restorations can withstand the forces of biting and chewing, ensuring optimal oral function.
The Inlays and Onlays Procedure
The process of obtaining inlays and onlays at Teeth At Tiong Bahru is straightforward, efficient, and minimally invasive.
1. Consultation and Examination: Our expert dentists will perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums, and overall oral health. Digital X-rays and 3D imaging are utilized to obtain a complete understanding of your dental needs.
2. Treatment Planning: Based on the examination results, our dentists will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique dental requirements. This plan will outline the number of inlays or onlays needed, the material to be used, and the expected timeline.
3. Tooth Preparation: During this stage, the tooth receiving the inlay or onlay is prepared. Our dentists will remove any decayed or damaged portions of the tooth while ensuring maximum preservation of healthy tooth structure.
4. Digital Impression: Using advanced digital scanning technology, an accurate impression of your tooth is captured. This eliminates the need for messy traditional impression materials, ensuring a comfortable and precise fit.
5. Temporary Restoration: While the final inlay or onlay is being created in our dental laboratory, a temporary restoration will be placed to protect the prepared tooth.
6. Final Placement: Once your customized restoration is ready, we will schedule your final visit to bond the inlay or onlay securely onto the prepared tooth. Our dentists ensure a precise fit and make any necessary adjustments to guarantee optimal function and comfort.
