What Can I Expect When I Have Inlays or Onlays Placed?
When you’re ready for your inlays or onlays to be placed, we’ll welcome you into the office here at Dentist of Torrance and help ensure your comfort during your visit.
As we begin the procedure, your tooth will be numbed with topical local anesthetic and the tooth decay will be removed with air abrasion to prevent infection or worsening conditions for your teeth. This also prepares the tooth for placement of the inlays or onlays.
We will then make an impression of your tooth and make a model that will be used to create the inlays and onlays, using tooth-colored materials.
A temporary filling will be attached to your tooth before you leave, to protect the affected teeth until the inlays or onlays are molded and cured and ready for application.
When the pieces are ready, you’ll return to the office for bonding and hardening of the inlays and onlays with specialized lighting.
