After root canal treatment in Turkey or applications performed on teeth with very large carious lesions, a small amount of healthy dental tissue remains. This condition, which appears especially in large carious cavities, is characterized by thinned tooth walls and weak enamel dentin tissue. Therefore, contact with neighboring teeth has disappeared. In such cases, applying large fillings to the tooth whose structural integrity has already decreased would be to risk the strength of the tooth. However, the restoration to be applied should support the tooth rather than weaken it. Inlays & onlays dental fillings specially produced for this purpose can also be considered as prostheses prepared outside the mouth. In such cases, we frequently and successfully apply inlays and onlays ceramic fillings in our dental clinic in Antalya, Turkey.
What Are Inlays and Onlays Fillings?
Inlays and onlays; They are extremely durable porcelain ceramic fillings that we apply in cases where there is too much material loss in the tooth and a very healthy result cannot be obtained with composite filling.
The purpose of this treatment is to allow the person to use their teeth for a long time with minimal intervention on the remaining part of the tooth. It is a treatment method that is between inlays and onlays, filling and veneer. By giving the tooth form to the filling, the tooth is restored to its original state.
Inlay restoration; These are restorations that we apply for smaller areas in the tooth and to the inner part of the tooth. Therefore, it is a treatment that covers the protrusions that we call tubercles on the chewing surfaces of the teeth. They are more like composite fillings.
Onlay restoration is; It is a restoration that we apply to the upper surface of the tooth for larger areas when there is more material loss in the tooth. Inlays & onlays are aesthetic porcelain ceramic fillings that we produce in Turkey using existing dental tissue. After cleaning the decayed tissue in the tooth, they are prepared by technicians in the laboratory environment by taking measurements from the tooth. After that, we adhere the inlay and onlay ceramic fillings to the teeth in a clinical setting.
If we think like a puzzle, the missing piece in the tooth is produced outside and we stick this piece on the tooth and complete the treatment. We apply inlays and onlays dental fillings for our patients who want very high quality in terms of aesthetics and comfort in Turkey.
In Which Situations Do We Prefer Inlays and Onlays in Turkey?
One of the reasons why we prefer Inlays & Onlays ceramic fillings in our dental clinic in Turkey, Antalya is excessive material loss in the teeth. When a decay grows too large, the loss of substance in the tooth increases. Therefore, when we clean this caries, we sometimes have a third of the tooth left. In such cases, we prefer inlays & onlays ceramic fillings instead of composite fillings in Turkey.
Sometimes, when we remove the amalgam fillings that have been made before, we prefer ceramic fillings to protect this tooth. Because ceramic fillings protect the tooth better and prolong its life.
To summarize briefly; We prefer inlays and onlays fillings in Turkey for teeth that have been damaged too much to be filled or for tissue losses that are too low to be treated with zirconia crowns turkey.
How Do We Make Inlays and Onlays Fillings in Turkey?
For inlays & onlays dental fillings, we first apply a small local anesthesia to the person like composite fillings. Then we clean the caries from the tooth. After cleaning the caries, we take measurements from the remaining tooth tissue.
We send the measurements we take to the laboratory and the technicians prepare the ceramic filling according to these measurements. We complete the treatment by sticking the inlay & onlay fillings we get from the laboratory to the patient’s tooth in the 2nd session. Therefore, we can make inlays & onlays ceramic fillings in 2 sessions in Turkey.
How Much Does Inlays and Onlays Cost in Turkey?
The price of inlays & onlays fillings in Turkey depends on the size of the ceramic filling to be produced. Inlay fillings cover smaller areas. Therefore, the cost of inlay filling in Turkey is less than onlay filling. We apply onlay fillings in our dental clinic in Antalya to close larger dental caries and cavities. Therefore, the cost of onlay filling is more costly in Turkey than inlay filling.
If we give a price range for inlays & onlays, this price range will be between 250-500 Euros in Turkey.
Ceramic fillings are prepared by indirect method according to the measurements given in the laboratory environment. Therefore, it is a costly filling type compared to other fillings. The only disadvantage of inlay & onlay fillings is their high cost. However, the benefit provided is quite high. People use these ceramic fillings in the most aesthetic way for life.
