Inlays and Onlays

Predictability and Strength for Reno Smiles

Inlays and onlays – straightforward names for straightforward Reno dental restorations. The Wager Evans team loves inlays and onlays for their strength, predictability, and security. Patients love them because they are so long-lasting and beautiful.

A Little Extra When You Need It

Sometimes your smile needs a little something extra to return to full function – but it doesn’t really need our most intensive treatments. When regular composite fillings aren’t quite enough, but you really don’t need a crown, dental inlays and onlays are the perfect choice. Because they are a solid restoration made of pure porcelain or other materials of your choice, such as gold, and made in a lab, they offer the strength and beauty of a crown without covering all of your natural enamel or the need for advanced tooth preparation. It’s conservative care at its best!

Do I Need Inlays or Onlays?

  • Are you suffering from badly damaged teeth?
  • Do you have failing, old-fashioned fillings that need to be replaced?
  • Do you have larger areas of decay?
  • Are your teeth weakened?
  • Do you tend to clench and grind?

Then you might be a good candidate for our beautiful Reno dental inlays and onlays.

Inlays are primarily used when your dental damage or decay is centered between the points of cusps of your teeth and most resemble fillings.

Onlays cover one or more of your cusps and can help strengthen a tooth much the way a crown does.

Wager Evans Dental offers a variety of materials for inlays and onlays including:

  • Porcelain
  • Zirconia
  • Gold
  • Resin

We will take plenty of time with you discussing your needs, your lifestyle and habits, and your budget to come up with the best solution for you.

How Do Inlays and Onlays Work?

Both our Reno inlays and onlays replace damaged enamel, mimicking nature, and adding incredible strength. Either procedure is generally done within two appointments. At the first appointment, Dr. Evans will take a digital impression of your teeth. This impression, along with 3-D models, will be sent to our hand-selected laboratory from Reno to create your restoration. A temporary restoration will be placed to protect your smile and allow you to eat and function as usual while you wait.

Once your inlay or onlay is complete, Dr. Evans will remove your temporary and bond your beautiful new restoration in place. Once placed, our inlays or onlays will keep your smile going strong, looking great, and fully functioning for years to come.

Very friendly and considerate and helpful and kind. As pleasant as any trip to a dentist could ever be. Glad I found them. Appreciate that my insurance is accepted. Hope never to be forced to go anywhere else
