Inlays and Onlays

Inlays are used to repair the chewing surface of a back tooth and mend larger cavities where fillings are not suitable. An Onlay is very similar only it is slightly larger and sits over larger chewing surfaces.

Inlays and Onlays can be made from an alloy metal or ceramic, both of which are tooth-coloured so as to blend with the natural colour of your teeth.

This does involve two to three appointments as the treatment is tailored to the individual, with impressions  taken and sent to a lab where a custom Inlay or Onlay is made for you so that it fits perfectly. Depending on the size of the cavity you may need to be numbed around the tooth with local anaesthetic to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.

Inlay/Onlayfrom £500

Please be aware that we will require a deposit when you book an appointment - this will be deducted from your bill for the relevant treatment at your next visit. We understand that things sometimes come up, so your deposit will not be affected if you alter your appointment with over 24 hours' notice. We will always be as flexible as possible with you but reserve the right to retain your deposit in case of late cancellations (any cancellation with less than 24 hours’ notice) or late arrivals which result in us not being able to see you (for example, arriving c:15 minutes late for a 20-30 minute appointment). It is very difficult for us to offer care to other patients if little notice is given. Loss of opportunity to treat patients in need increases the waiting times for appointments and the cost to run the surgery. We will always try to be sensitive to personal circumstances in the event of late cancellations.
