Composite Inlays and Onlays
At CJ Dental Studio, we understand the significance of providing advanced and effective solutions for dental issues, especially when it comes to extensive cavities. For cases where a cavity is significantly large or deep, a standard white filling might not be the ideal solution. Instead, our experienced dental team recommends highly durable options such as Composite Inlays and Onlays as well as Ceramic Inlays and Onlays, ensuring a robust and long-lasting resolution for your dental concerns.
Inlays and Onlays represent a sophisticated approach to dental restoration. These restorations are not simply inserted; they are meticulously crafted outside the mouth as solid pieces, tailored to the unique contours of your tooth. This custom approach ensures a perfect fit, both functionally and aesthetically. Our skilled dental technicians employ a variety of high-quality materials, including advanced ceramics and porcelain, to construct these inlays and onlays. These materials are chosen not only for their durability but also for their ability to seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, providing a flawless and natural appearance.
The treatment process for Inlays and Onlays typically spans across two visits, each step designed to guarantee precision and excellence in your dental care. During the initial appointment, our dental professionals will carefully prepare the affected tooth. Using cutting-edge technology such as intra-oral scanners or in some cases traditional dental impressions, we capture highly accurate impressions. These impressions serve as the blueprint for the creation of your customised inlay or onlay.
The impressions are then sent to our highly skilled dental technicians who specialise in crafting dental restorations with meticulous attention to detail. These technicians utilize the latest techniques and materials to create inlays and onlays that perfectly replicate your tooth’s anatomy. Craftsmanship is paramount, ensuring that the final restoration not only fits flawlessly but also functions seamlessly with your natural teeth and the occlusion.
At your second visit, our experienced dentists meticulously install the custom-made inlay or onlay. This step involves precise adjustments to guarantee an ideal fit and bite. The restoration is securely bonded into place, ensuring it becomes a natural and integral part of your tooth structure. Our commitment to excellence extends to the installation process, where we focus on achieving optimal functionality and aesthetics.
Choosing Inlays and Onlays, whether Composite or Ceramic, means investing in a long-term dental solution. These restorations are known for their durability, resisting wear and tear even under the pressures of regular chewing and biting. Moreover, their ability to perfectly mimic natural teeth ensures that they seamlessly integrate into your smile, enhancing both your appearance and your dental health.
When you choose CJ Dental Studio for your dental needs, you are not just choosing a service; you are choosing a commitment to exceptional care. Our skilled dental professionals are dedicated to providing you with personalized, high-quality solutions tailored to your unique dental requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why can’t I just have a filling instead?
In some cases where you have a very large cavity a deep white filling will not be strong enough to support the remaining tooth. If your tooth is at this weakened stage then it is necessary to have an inlay or an onlay to hold the remaining tooth together.
The materials we offer are extremely strong and durable and will be able to support the tooth against the strong chewing forces.
Can it be made of gold?
Materials for inlays and onlays will be discussed during your visit. They can be made from a gold filling material, or can be made with various tooth coloured materials, such as ceramic or Emax.
Gold is an option and can be very long-lasting, durable and wear resistant.
How often should I see a dentist?
We recommend having your dental check-up every 6-12 months unless we advise otherwise. At your check-up the clinician will advise you on how frequently you need to attend based on your oral health.
How long will it last?
The lifespan for these restorations is much longer than that of a conventional filling. By maintaining good oral hygiene including brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups, then your restoration can last more than ten years.
If your restoration cracks, chips, or is dislodged, then it would need to be repaired or replaced.
