If there is excessive substance loss in the tooth, dental filling treatment should be applied. Although it is generally applied on the posterior molars, it is a valid treatment for all teeth. Dental fillings are a treatment method that is both aesthetic and resistant to chewing pressures, reliable and usable in the long term. The basic procedure in filling treatment is to prepare a suitable cavity and regain its natural form before decay with the filling to be made on the tooth. The type of filling used depends on the position and function of the tooth. Porcelain inlays and onlays are fillings with superior aesthetics and durability prepared in the laboratory. In teeth requiring large fillings, porcelain inlays onlays can be applied instead of composite or amalgam filling because of its aesthetics and durability. Inlays onlays are preferred as they require less substance loss in the tooth compared to porcelain crowns during the treatment phase. The carious tooth is cleaned and measured. Porcelain inlay fillings prepared in the laboratory are then adhered to the teeth with adhesive systems. The advantage of this method is that it does not waste time and often the treatment is completed in one session. In some cases, the fillings are made out of the mouth and glued when the patient comes to the clinic, resulting in better results. This form of treatment is called onlays inlays. Inlays onlays treatment in Turkey, is a treatment method performed frequently.

What is Inlay and Onlay?

Inlay onlay restorations are aesthetic fillings prepared in the laboratory for restoration of teeth that require large fillings or are treated with root canal treatment. Inlay and onlay are made of composite material reinforced with porcelain or fiber. The choice of materials to be used is determined by whether the other teeth in contact are natural, composite or porcelain. Onlay begins with cleaning and measuring the patient’s rotten tooth. The decayed tooth that has been cleaned is temporarily filled with easily detachable filler. A filling form is created by the technician using composite, porcelain, or gold. Factors such as the size of the caries, the appearance of the mouth, and the location of the filling are evaluated by the dentist. After the Onlay is produced, the patient is given an appointment and the restoration is adhered to. The advantage of inlay onlay treatment is that the restoration can be worked much more detailed and efficient than the mouth during its production in the laboratory. It also minimizes the negative effects caused by factors such as moisture, saliva and blood, which are exposed during the filling in the mouth, in the adhesion and hardening of the filling.

How is Inlay and Onlay applied?

During the application stages, inlays and onlays are first cleaned of caries in the dental tissues and prepared for the procedure. Measurement is taken from the cleaned and prepared tooth. The tooth is closed with temporary filler. In the second appointment, temporary filling is removed. Measurement can be done with two different techniques. Classical measuring and digital scanning systems (CAD / CAM) measuring methods taken with dough-like measuring materials can be used. Then inlay and onlay; According to the measurement, it is prepared in the laboratory environment or in the production part of the digital scanning system. Inlays and onlays prepared in this way are adhered to the tooth using a special and sensitive adhesive system. Since inlays and onlays are prepared in the laboratory, treatment can take several sessions. Inlay or onlay is rehearsed and polished to the tooth using a special adhesive. The closure is fully adjusted by the dentist and the treatment process is completed by applying the polish.

Who is suitable for Inlay and Onlay and why is it preferred?

Inlay and Onlay treatment is a treatment method for patients with carious teeth. Generally, there is no restriction for this treatment. It can be made to anyone over the age of 16 who has an appropriate oral health. In canal treatment or excessively carious teeth, insufficient intact tooth tissue remains after caries cleaning. This makes it impossible to contact neighboring teeth. If the neighboring tooth is not contacted, the consumed food accumulates between the teeth and damages the tooth tissue. This causes problems in the gums. Since inlay and onlay are prepared on the model, the desired anatomical form and contact are easily achieved. They are also more resistant to abrasion and chewing pressures than the material used in conventional filling. Inlays and onlays are more aesthetic than other fillers. Inlays and onlays are recommended for patients who care about aesthetics and comfort. Inlays and onlays can be preferred when we do not want to lose too much substance in the tooth. These fillings are a type of filling made from a composite or porcelain that is strengthened in the laboratory, which restores the loss of material in the teeth to complement only the missing parts of the tooth due to factors such as caries, canal treatment or trauma. These are much more compatible with the tooth to which they are applied compared to composite fillings. Inlay and onlays, as in lamina coatings, are intact in the natural part of the tooth. Such fillings are used in the teeth on the back side in patients with aesthetic and comfort expectations, instead of metallic and dark amalgam fillings. In addition, in patients who need a lot of filling, the ceramic fillings to be prepared in the laboratory are applied in the second session after the dental preparation and measurement phase in one session. Thus, time is saved. 

Inlay Onlay fillings are longer to use than composite fillings. Since the porcelain filling is the same hardness as the tooth, it prevents breaks in bite force and contributes to keeping the tooth healthy as before. In addition, since it is prepared in tooth color, ceramic fillings seem indistinguishable. Inlays onlays is a filling method developed in order to protect healthy tooth tissue when there is a lot of substance loss in the tooth and when the tooth needs to be crowned and shrunk. It is used instead of amalgam fillings since its appearance is more aesthetic and more useful. Patients can move comfortably as if there are no fillers in their teeth, and have healthy and aesthetic teeth for many years.

Things to consider when having Inlay and Onlay treatment

Inlay and Onlay fillings are made of porcelain or composite resin and are affixed to damaged teeth. It is similar to inlay filling and is affixed to the inside of the tooth. Onlay is applied on more damaged teeth and covers the outer part of the tooth. Traditionally gold has been favored in the making of inlay and onlay. In recent years, porcelain has started to be preferred because of its properties such as durability and color harmony. The materials used as aesthetic fillings are Composite and porcelain. They are also known as white fillers. Composite ; it is used more often because it is resistant to high pressure, can be applied in the desired tooth color and can be chemically attached to the tooth. Porcelain inlays Onlays restorations; as an alternative to Composites, is a preferred aesthetic treatment method in cases where there is a lot of material loss in the tooth. Inlay Onlay restorations are preferred because of the aesthetic advantages of porcelain and the excellent gum harmony. Traditional fillings can reduce the durability of the natural tooth by 50%. Alternatively, inlay and Onlay fillings increase the strength of the tooth by 75% as they are strongly attached directly to the tooth. As a result, the tooth can be used seamlessly between 10-30 years. Pain is not heard during the procedure and the need for anesthesia is usually not. Since there are many bacteria in the oral cavity, all restorations are risky for the formation of caries. Paying attention to oral hygiene will prolong the life of fillings. For this purpose, you should not disrupt your routine oral care, your dentist checks. During these checks, fillings may need to be polished again. Inlays and onlays can be made on the computer by removing three-dimensional images with intra-mouth scanners without taking measurements. For this, the clinic must have a scanner system called cad-cam installed. Even with Cad-cam systems, treatment can be finished on the same day. The patient’s expectations should be learned in detail at the beginning of the treatment. It is necessary to take the measure in detail and to work with a dedicated technician. For long-term success of the treatment, care should be given to oral hygiene and at least once a year should come to routine dental checkups.

Before Inlay and Onlay procedure

Inlay and onlay fillings are indirect dental treatments that reinforce teeth that are not bad enough to require crowns but are not strong enough to carry a filling. Inlay fill is placed on the chewing surface between the faces of the teeth, while Onlay fill covers one or more surfaces. Before inlay Onlay procedure, local anesthesia is injected into the patient’s mouth to numb the area where the procedure will be performed. Then the tooth decay is removed or the old fillings are removed and the area is reshaped to make sure it is suitable for filling. Before Inlay and Onlay, the mold of the problematic part is taken and the mold is sent to the dental laboratory. A temporary inlay or Onlay filling is placed on the patient’s teeth until the permanent filling is ready. The treatment process is completed in a few sessions.

After Inlay and Onlay procedure

The patient must follow the instructions given by the dentist after Inlay and Onlay procedure. After the operation, patients may feel some minor pain and discomfort. This pain level is low and can be relieved with a pain killer. However, patients should not take any pain medication before consulting their dentist. If anesthetics have been performed, the food should be eaten after the effect of the anesthesia has passed. Food can be eaten after treatment if anesthesia is not performed. Attention should be given to oral hygiene; otherwise over time recurrent decay may develop beneath the filling and may result in failure of the filling. If the filling breaks or falls, the patient should contact the clinic again. Never eat hard shell foods or contact hard objects with your Inlay Onlay treated tooth. Do not apply unusual forces. Please note that this kind of extraordinary forces can break a healthy tooth and your tooth, which is filled more easily, can break. Sensitivity may last 1-2 weeks or even longer depending on the condition of the tooth. In the presence of ongoing pain after this period, the patient may refer to the clinic again. Depending on the use of tea, coffee and cigarettes, colorization may occur over time, this colorization can be eliminated by the dental polishing process that the physician will do. Inlay onlay treatment may not always be successful, for reasons that depend on the patient’s oral care. If the tooth is damaged, the root canal treatment is performed. Otherwise, surgical treatment is planned.

Inlays and Onlays advantages

Inlays and Onlays is the filling method used in people with excessive substance loss in their teeth. The goal of treatment is to maintain healthy dental tissue. Porcelain fillings, which are completely prepared in the same color as the patient’s own teeth, are so indistinguishable from the eye. The patient uses these healthy and aesthetically filled teeth for many years, as if there are no fillers in his teeth. The Inlays and Onlays benefits are not limited to these. It removes tooth fractures and gaps between teeth, giving the person the appearance of natural teeth. Here are the other Inlays and Onlays advantages: 

  • Inlays and Onlays save time because the treatment time is very short.
  • Gingival compatibility is more.
  • When digital cameras are used, the margin of error is minimized.
  • Inlays and Onlays last longer than composite fillings.
  • Resistance is higher in Inlays and Onlays applications.
  • It is less affected by colored foods and beverages.
  • They are more biocompatible than amalgam fillings.
  • Inlays and Onlays can be polished mechanically or by re-firing technique.
  • Among the advantages of inlay and onlay, its aesthetic and visual appearance attracts more attention, while also providing comfort to the patients. Creating the feeling that there is no filling in the mouth also provides a comfortable use.

Inlays and onlays are fillings with superior aesthetics and durability that are prepared in the laboratory. The filling is very different from other fillings due to its ability to be prepared in a laboratory environment outside the mouth. Aesthetic and solid function fillings are obtained by taking the model prepared with a precision technology in the laboratory. After treatment, the teeth are sent to a laboratory for precise preparation and temporary fillings are added until the next appointment. A kind of liquid filling material called composite to be adhered to Inlay and Onlay teeth is applied to the tooth. In this way, the remaining tooth tissues are strengthened. After the bonding process, polishing operations are done and the process is completed.

Disadvantages of Inlays and Onlays

The disadvantages of inlay onlay fillings are that they are slightly more costly than composite fillings. The cost of ceramic inlay Onlay fillings is very expensive for patients compared to composite fillings. These fillings require a very delicate operation. If they are not done properly, they do not maintain the same fit as the tooth. The need for more than one session and more complicated than filling construction is also a disadvantage. For a good preparation, in some cases it may require more substance loss in intact tissue.

Inlay and Onlay lifetime

Inlay onlay fillings that require technical precision during the design and bonding phase can be used for many years by the patient when prepared under suitable conditions. If you have inlays and Onlays treatment in Turkey, you can use them at least 10 years.

Why does Inlay Onlay fall?

Each filling type has its own characteristics. Inlay Onlay are fillings that give excellent results in tooth attachment and strength. But sometimes they can fall before the specified time. Sometimes, inlays and onlays can be cracked due to reasons such as eating habits and neglect. In this case, liquids such as water and saliva can leak from the filling material. This causes pain in the tooth and falls after a while. If it is noticed that the filling cracks without falling, it can be repaired. Since Inlay Onlay treatment is a treatment method used for teeth that are already problematic in general, it is wrong to force the filled area with foods that are hard and put pressure on the tooth structure. If the Inlay Onlay padding has been used for a long time, it will be affected by these pressures or fall or crack. If the crack is not treated, it causes the filling to fall. In order to use Inlay Onlay fillings for a long time, you should be careful about oral and dental health and should not disrupt daily care. Keeping the teeth clean and regular maintenance not only protects the healthy teeth, but also preserves the filling, making it longer lasting. Bruxism is a teeth grinding disease. The person with this disease clenches his teeth and squeaks while sleeping at night. Sometimes he does this involuntarily too hard. If no treatment method is used for this ailment, as the disease progresses, it starts to damage the person’s teeth and gums. Over time, it can create many problems, from shaking teeth to loss of teeth. This is also the case with filling. Bruxism can drop when it reaches an advanced level and the padding is constantly exposed to pressure and friction.

The differences between Inlay and Onlay

Inlay and Onlay ceramic fillings differ in the area they cover. Onlay ceramic fillings are applied on large tooth surfaces, while inlay ceramic fillings are applied on relatively smaller areas. Inlay fillings are located on the chewing surface of the teeth. Onlay ceramic fillings are made to cover one or more hillocks. The root canal treatment or severely decayed teeth do not contain sufficient amount of dental tissue. Because there is not much tissue to make contact with neighboring teeth, eaten foods cause accumulation between teeth. However, the inlay and Onlay ceramics studied in the laboratory are designed to make contact with the surrounding teeth, resulting in a more durable coating than the conventional filling material.

Aesthetic filling applications on the front teeth

Among the filling systems applied for the front teeth, bonding systems get very successful results. This system is a method applied in Turkey. The most important factors for a beautiful smile are the shape of the teeth, the size, the color of the gums and the harmony between the teeth and gums. Of course, the types and qualities of the materials used in aesthetic processes are also important. With the bonding systems that can be applied in every part of the mouth, permanent and successful results can be obtained. With the one-session application applied to the patient, the bonding system is applied to all the teeth in the smile line and the desired aesthetic image can be obtained in only 1-2 hours. To provide an aesthetic appearance on the anterior teeth, it is first necessary to analyze the dental tissues and the materials that mimic them. While the dentine tissue in the tooth determines the yellow color it gives to the tooth, its transparent structure and enamel tissue covers the dentine tissue. It is due to enamel texture that the tip of the teeth is colored and transparent. The reason for the visual success of the aesthetic fillings made is provided by using an aesthetic filling and bonding system, which can imitate the same dental tissues and is suitable for the patient’s tooth color. The bonding system in the teeth is used not only in the formed caries, but also in other problems of the teeth. Color problems in the front teeth can be corrected by slightly eroding the colored tissue and obtaining a suitable color for the teeth.

Aesthetic filling applications on the back teeth

Porcelain inlay onlay fillings are preferred for aesthetic fillings used for the posterior teeth. With the advancement of dental technology in Turkey, new techniques were being used in the filler material. With these, an aesthetically perfect appearance can be obtained not only in the front teeth but also in the back teeth. Replacing the amalgam fillers, which were used years ago, which caused aesthetic problem due to its color and caused unnecessary substance loss in the teeth, materials that are most compatible with the texture and color of the tooth and which do not attract attention with its presence are used. In the problems that cannot be filled since the healthy tissue has decreased and there is no solution other than just applying a coating prosthesis to the teeth, now teeth are provided with aesthetic appearance and functionality of the teeth with porcelain inlay onlay ceramic fillers.

Porcelain fillings have been used frequently in the past. However, it was not preferred much because of its fast breaking properties and problems while adhering. Now, with the innovations made in the production of porcelain and the materials used to adhere them, they have become preferred especially in the back teeth. Back teeth, as you know, are exposed to more pressure while eating. Therefore, it is imperative that the fillings made in the posterior teeth be more robust. Even if composite fillings with bonding system are used for the posterior teeth, longer lasting porcelain inlay application is preferred in patients with decreasing healthy dental tissue.

In order to have porcelain inlay onlay, it is necessary to clean only the carious tissues of the tooth or teeth and measure the tooth with a special impression material. This measurement is transferred to digital media with the help of computer-aided devices. By choosing the appropriate color for the tooth, micro-metric compatible porcelain inlay onlay is produced with the tooth. This material is produced with zero margin of error. It is adhered chemically and micro mechanically to the dental tissue using special adhesives. In this way, the dental tissue is supported, and the fragile feature of the tooth and porcelain is completely prevented.

Mercury in the past amalgam fillings dissolves over time. In addition, they also have breaking properties over time. When these effects occur, people usually do not notice this. Therefore, caries start to occur on the teeth. When people want to remove the fillings, a 95% bruise occurs under it. Therefore, it is more beneficial to replace amalgam fillers with bonding composite fillings or porcelain inlay onlays. Porcelain fillings protect the remaining dental tissue and give more successful results in adhering to the tooth. Therefore, it is necessary to be careful in choosing the material to be used in the tooth. The materials selected in the teeth that have been treated for the canal and the materials to be selected in live teeth should be different from each other.

Why is Inlay Onlay privileged?

They are aesthetic, they are long-lasting, they maintain the remaining intact tooth tissue, the risk of edge leakage and new caries is minimal, their biological harmony is good, they do not show allergic reactions, they have little involvement of bacterial plaque, they save time, dental and restoration harmony is very sensitive. There are many more features that make inlay onlay fillings so privileged. After the preparation for the tooth is completed, the work is sent to the laboratory with the precise measurements taken over the teeth and temporary fillings are added so that the teeth remain empty until the next appointment and do not become sensitive. Test and control of finished porcelain on the plaster model until the next rehearsal prepared and finished porcelain first in the mouth after the check and alignment of a kind of fluid composite filling material called adhesive simantation to be able to be strongly glued to the teeth porcelain fillings are glued to the teeth. In this way, the remaining tooth tissues are strengthened. After the bonding, it will be finished with polishing process. Inlays onlays are fillings with superior aesthetics and durability that are prepared in the laboratory. Composite fillings are much more compatible with the teeth and adjacent teeth they are applied to. Because the filling can be prepared in a laboratory outside the mouth. After the fracture, bruise or old filling in the tooth is removed; the rest is measured and goes to the laboratory. This model, which is prepared in the laboratory with a highly sensitive technology, is transformed into fillings with the help of a special IPS machine and with excellent aesthetics and function. Leucid-reinforced pressable porcelain fillings are the most suitable oral restoration material in the world and are a very suitable material for dental tissue. The most advanced technology is used in the preparation of this porcelain filling. In IPS filling method, the healthy tooth tissue in the mouth is untouched. Maximum retention is achieved with Minimum material loss. Edge leakage is minimal since they are special porcelain compacted and not hardened in the mouth. Thus, the under-filling bruises and prevents the filling from falling off. In addition, these porcelain materials are closest to the hardness of the tooth and most compatible with the gingival materials. Because the hardness of the tooth is very close to the enamel tissue, it does not erode the teeth like other porcelain, nor does it erode the teeth like composite fillings. Especially in large material losses, Composite fill or crowns should be preferred instead.

Inlay and onlay restorations in Turkey

Inlay and onlay fillings can be made with two different materials. These are  composite and ceramic. The use of composite inlays is gradually decreasing. Since the ceramic material is higher than the long-term success it is common, with more areas in Turkey. Inlay and onlay fillings are fillings prepared in the laboratory with superior aesthetics and durability. In teeth that require large filling, ceramic inlay and onlay can be applied instead of composite or amalgam filling, since they are both aesthetic and durable. Inlay and onlay restorations in Turkey draw intense attention especially from patients from abroad. Our foreign guests who come to Turkey to be in Antalya get this treatment at Myra Dental Clinic. Inlay Onlay filling is the most commonly preferred option when it is desired to get the closest image to nature on the chewing surfaces of molars and to perform wear-resistant restorations. Edge leakage is less than classical fillings. Inlay Onlay fillings are especially applied when acid consumption in the mouth is excessive. In the teeth that need veneers, etching can be prevented from the sound income of the tooth by using inlay filler. Because they are made of porcelain, their surfaces are perfectly polished and do not allow food residues to hold onto the bacterial plaque. As they are prepared in the laboratory, the surfaces in the area where the teeth come into contact with each other are best prepared and glued to the teeth in the mouth. Because they provide passive adaptation with the tooth, they support the tooth, reducing the risk of fracture, but are not able to prevent it fully.

Inlay onlay fillings are preferred as they require less substance loss in teeth than porcelain crowns during construction. Only the caries are cleaned and the size of the tooth is taken. Porcelain inlay fillings prepared in the laboratory are then adhered to the teeth with adhesive systems. Canal treatment is applied to the teeth, especially those with severe substance loss, and if necessary, simple surgical corrections on the gums and onlay treatment are applied.
