Inlay - Onlay

What are they?

Τα ένθετα και τα επένθετα είναι αποκαταστάσεις των πίσω  δοντιών, που κατασκευάζονται σε οδοντοτεχνικό εργαστήριο από πορσελάνη ή ρητίνη. Ο διαχωρισμός και η ονομασία ένθετων και επένθετων αποκαταστάσεων γίνεται ανάλογα με το μέγεθος  και το μέρος του δοντιού που αποκαθιστούν. 

For example, onlays are used on natural teeth that lack dental substance and fillings can not be used to cover them.

It is very common for people to call them dental fillings, but they are not. They are constructed differently and the placement technique differs. Thus they ensure greater strength compared to conventional fillings.

What materials are they made of?

In terms of materials of choice we have to choose between porcelain or resin made in traditional ways or with digital technology (CAD / CAM).

The choice is based on parameters such as the size of the restoration, the position of the tooth in the arch, the presence or absence of a groove and the financial capabilities of our patient. Resin provides a wonderful aesthetic result, are cheaper than porcelain coatings and are easier to repair. 

What is the procedure?

It takes two appointments to complete. In the first, the old filling and possible caries is removed from the tooth. We continue shaping the cavity of the tooth in the appropriate way.

The first appointment ends with the receipt of your tooth imprint which will be sent to the laboratory. The second appointment is the welding of the onlay. Between the first and the second appointment there is a time of a few days. During this time the tooth is protected by a temporary filling.

What are the advantages?

  1. It is made of materials with better properties and durability
  2. High aesthetics
  3. Time resistant
  4. Protects the tooth

How mush does it cost?

The cost and price for a patient to have implants or implants in their teeth varies due to several factors. The main factors that affect the cost of inserts or inserts are the material that the patient will choose and the problem that exists.

I visited the dentist Maria Lalousi after a recommendation because I had broken my tooth. The result of the all-ceramic case he gave me was amazing. The color of the case is exactly the same as the rest of my teeth. Excellent work and very good professional. The office space is almost sterile, following all the hygiene protocols !!!

I took my son for an emergency extraction whilst on holiday. I was extremely impressed with the speed and efficiency Maria demonstrated. My son felt at ease and the tooth was taken out without complications. In so far as I booked myself a check up and proceeded with a dental hygiene session too! Superb results in a modern and immaculately clean surgery . Thank you Maria!

I visited Dr. Maria Lalousi for a check and cleaning of my teeth at the urging of my husband who had kindly visited her and was completely satisfied. I must mention that unfortunately my fear had kept me away from the dentist for a very long time / years… After quite easy and difficult fillings and replacement of an old case I want to say a big thank you because with her character and her professionalism with convinced that it was worth trusting her with the above! I must emphasize that she manages to be patient and friendly. The rules of hygiene are perfectly observed and the doctor's office, the machines and everything she uses are really impressive.
