When the caries in the teeth is very large, composite fillings may not be a long-lasting treatment option. Because in cases where there is a lot of losing material, the tooth tissue may break as a result of chewing forces. As a result of the fracture of the remaining tooth tissue, the tooth may become unrestorable. For this reason, dental inlay & onlays and dental veneers are preferred as a more durable and long-lasting treatment method in cases where the tooth is severely damaged. Dental veneers may sometimes be the only option depending on the level of damage to the tooth. However, in conditions where the damage is relatively less, dental inlay & onlays are preferred as they are also less invasive than dental veneers. Because less tooth tissue is removed during dental inlay & onlay treatment. Currently, dentists prefer to apply treatments by protecting the healthy tooth tissue as much as possible.

The tooth damage is worse, the fit of the composite fillings applied directly in the mouth will be poor. When the fit of the fillings is poor, bacterial leakage occurs from the area between the filling and the tooth. The bacteria decays the healthy tooth tissue under the filling over time. Often, caries occurring under the dental filling is sneaky because it cannot be seen in the inside of the mouth. It can reach large sizes without being noticed and cause problems up to tooth loss.

Dental inlays & onlays are not prepared directly in the mouth. After the decayed tissue in the tooth is removed, it is produced as custom made in the laboratory environment, so it is much more fit. Ceramic dental inlay & onlay is a more strong material than composite. Since it is custom made, the forces generated by biting can be adjusted more ideally. It is more resistant to abrasion and fracture than composite fillings. It can be used for a very long time as long as regular dental controls and hygiene are provided.

When the larger restorations are required, it is very difficult to ensure the contact harmony with the adjacent tooth with composite fillings made directly in the mouth. In cases where contact harmony cannot be achieved, negativities such as food jamming between the teeth may occur. Dental inlay and onlay restorations are more successful in terms of contact compatibility compared to conventional dental composite fillings.

Dental inlay and onlay treatment can be preferred instead of composite tooth filling even if the damage to the tooth is not serious. Since it is custom made, shape and colour fit will be achieved much more easily. Much more aesthetic results are obtained than composite fillings.

Composite fillings absorb water over time and change colour due to foods that cause discolouration. Ceramic inlays and onlays cannot be discoloured over time because they do not absorb water. Therefore, it is a very ideal choice for patients with high aesthetic expectations.

If old dental amalgam fillings are to be replaced, inlay-onlay can be preferred instead. Amalgam fillings provide mechanical retention on the tooth, so more tooth tissue is removed when they are made. Since the cavity is relatively larger, inlay-onlay will be a more long lasting and robust solution.


Dental Inlay & Onlay & Overlay


What are dental inlay and onlay?

Dental inlays and onlays are custom made aesthetic fillings prepared in the laboratory for the restoration of cracked and decayed teeth. It is generally preferred in the treatment of large caries, repair of cracked teeth, restorations made to the tooth after root canal treatment and replacement of old amalgam fillings. It is mostly produced from ceramic material, sometimes it can also be produced from fibre-reinforced composite material. Inlays are placed in the area between the cusps of the teeth similar to dental composite fillings. Onlays are made to cover one or more cusps up to the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Cusps are the name given to the bumps shaped like hills on the chewing surface of the back teeth.


Dental Onlay


Are inlays and onlays long lasting?

If the fit of the inlay-onlay is poor, there will be bacterial leakage between the tooth and the ceramic material and the tooth decays under the restoration. If regular dentist visits are not done, this decay will not be noticed and may cause major problems up to the loss of the tooth.

If there is an unrecognised mistake during impression taking or inlay & onlay production, fractures may occur in the tooth or restoration. Therefore, the choice of the dental centre to be treated is important.

If sufficient saliva and blood isolation is not provided during bonding, the inlay-onlay may fall off. Please visit your dentist for re-bonding.

If the material to be produced inlay-onlay is not selected correctly, abrasion may occur on the opposite tooth it comes into contact with, especially in patients with clenching teeth.

If the contact fit with the adjacent tooth is not controlled during inlay-onlay treatment, situations that may reduce the comfort of life such as food jamming may occur. Please visit your dentist for adjusmtment of contact.

As a result of the temporary filling falling off between two visits, negativities such as sensitivity and food jamming may occur. If your temporary filling falls out, visit the dentist immediately.

It is normal to have sensitivity for a while after the inlay onlay is performed, but if the sensitivity lasts too long, it indicates the presence of a negative situation. If the sensitivity lasts longer than 3-4 weeks, do not neglect to visit the dentist.

If the sensitivity of the inlay & onlay performed tooth is very high, or if the pain persists, root canal treatment may be required. If it is not treated, the tooth may need to be extracted.

Dental Inlays & Onlays Aftercare

Do not eat anything until the numbness in the lips, cheeks and tongue disappears after local anaesthesia. The numbness usually lasts for 2 hours depending on the intensity of the anaesthesia. Thus, accidental biting of the soft tissue is avoided and the partial durability of the filling increases.
It is usual to feel sensitivity after filling. Within a few weeks, the sensitivity decreases and disappears completely. If sensitivity has not disappeared after 3-4 weeks, you should consult a dentist.
If the sensitivity remains, your dentist will apply desensitisation treatments. If the sensitivity is very severe or spontaneous pain occurs, root canal treatment may be required.
If pain is felt when biting, it is probably caused by the height of the filling. You should contact your dentist.
In order for your filling to be long-lasting, brushing and flossing should not be skipped. Regular visits to the dentist to have your fillings checked should not be neglected.

How to do dental inlays & onlays
Panaromic X Ray and Examination
Examination and Decision

The treatment is decided with a detailed intraoral examination and panoramic x-ray image. The dentist recommends inlay-onlay treatment by considering the patient's aesthetic expectation, oral bad habits, clenching teeth habits and his/her age.

Local Anaesthesia Performing
Local Anaesthesia Performing

The dentist will inject a local anaesthetic into the area before removing the decay so that you do not feel pain during the procedure. You will have to wait for a while for the local anaesthetic to take effect.

Dental Handpiece
Art of Dental Handpiece

During the first dentist visit, the decayed and damaged surface is removed from the tooth. The surface of the tooth is shaped to increase the fit of the ceramic inlay and the cavity preparation is completed. Thus, the strength and aesthetics of the tooth are improved.

Preparing Aligners
Tooth Impression

After the cavity preparation is completed, conventional dental impressions or digital impressions are taken with a 3D intraoral scanner. After the colour of the tooth is determined by the dentist, the impressions are sent to the laboratory. The cavity is restored with temporary filling and the first dental session is completed.

Curing Light
Bonding of dental inlays and onlays

Your dentist may numb the area before removing the temporary filling on the second visit. The ceramic inlay-onlay is tried in the mouth and the bite is adjusted. If there is height, it is removed. After the fitting process is over, the tooth surface is cleaned and the inlay-onlay is bonded to the tooth with special dental bonding agents. Hardening of the bonding is ensured by applying dental curring light. At this stage, the dentist takes the necessary precautions to prevent the area from contact with saliva or blood. The treatment is completed by polishing in the mouth.

Melissa N. 01.03.2023
I wanted the smile makeover. I researched and contacted this firm. I had an online consultation with the dentist in Turkey. She convinced me that if we improve the alignment of my teeth, I will have an aesthetic appearance with laminate veneer without much damage to my teeth. She said that we could start clear aligner treatment first, but she said that the issue would be more clear in the clinical environment. The process progressed as we discussed at the beginning. It took some time, but I have both aesthetic and healthy teeth.
Jacob C. 04.06.2023
I have my wedding next month and I want everything to be perfect. I was not happy with the shape and colour of my teeth. I had some friends who had their teeth done in Turkey. I quickly searched the internet and met this team. They accompanied me throughout my entire treatment. I am very pleased with the clinic they recommended to me. I would like to thank my dentists and their team for giving me this beautiful smile before my wedding.
Georgiana B. 15.04.2023
I wished to reward myself and decided to have laminate veneers on my teeth. While searching on the internet, I realised that it was cheaper in Turkey. As a result, I contacted the company. They guided me and i went to Istanbul. Doctor Ege examined me and said that laminate veneers were not suitable. Because I was clenching my teeth too hard and the laminate veneer could be broken. He offered an alternative that we can achieve aesthetics with zirconium crowns, although not as much as laminate. I accepted but I had concerns. When my treatment was completed, I realised that my worries were unnecessary because it felt good. I liked that he warned me and gave up laminate.
Yusra B. 25.11.2022
I have a friend who has had teeth done in Turkey and is very naturalistic. I wanted teeth that were not noticeable by others, but I had mobility in my front teeth. I was very afraid of losing my teeth. When I sent my X-rays and photos, they said that there was nothing to be afraid of and that gum treatment would be done before the crown. When I first came to the clinic, the doctor and staff made me feel very comfortable. First, my gum treatment was done and it was expected to heal for 5 days. Afterwards, they made my teeth cut and took their measurements. After a very short time, I had teeth that were not noticeable from others, just as I wanted. When I looked at the mirror they gave me after they bonded my teeth, I couldn't stop myself from being surprised at how it could be so much natural. A team that understands your wishes and supports you from beginning to end.
Maciej M. 02.07.2023
I had heard that dental treatments were cheap in Turkey. I was concerned about the situation of some of my teeth. I did some research and met with various dentists. In general, they offered to make veneers on my 10 teeth to make my smile aesthetic. I also contacted Belal from this agency and he contacted me with prosthesis specialist Ege. Ege said that he thought I could have an aesthetic smile with fewer veneers. I wanted my teeth to look as natural as possible, so it built trust. I had planned a long holiday, I had a plan just in case. At first, I went to Ege's clinic, I was examined and we decided to make laminate veneers only on my 2 teeth that were worn out. So it was even less costly. My treatment was over before we could even discover Istanbul. I continued my holiday with my new teeth.
Samantha K. 12.04.2023
I could not laugh in front of my friends, I was constantly covering my mouth with my hand. I was very bored with this situation and I wanted to take action anyway. I found this place in my research on the internet and I contacted very quickly. When I told my story, they listened to me calmly and explained the solution very quickly and clearly. I liked this situation very much and we took the necessary actions without wasting any time. When I came to the clinic, they said that I had bone loss in some parts of my jaw, but that they would solve it with the most appropriate method. I reported that I could not sit on the couch for a long time and the doctor really acted very quickly and placed 4 implants on top and 2 implants on the bottom in almost 2 hours. We made an appointment for 3 months later and I had no problems with my temprorary teeth until then. When I came to the second time, they make my teeth without any trouble, I am very happy now and I can laugh as I want.
Ergunnes 01.10.2023
The dental crowns that I had done before harmed my gums and got a bad appearance. I wanted to change it, I reached this company by searching the internet. We had an online meeting and the dentist listened to me. The treatment plan they offered me seemed appropriate. We arranged my travel and accommodation with the company representative. They picked me up from the airport and took me to my hotel. Everything went very well. I rested for a day and then went to the clinic for my appointment. I had an x-ray and was examined. Doctor Ege created a new plan almost similar to the treatment plan they had made in our previous meeting. Istanbul was very fun, and my treatment was completed as I wanted.
Hazal D. 12.08.2023
I was not satisfied with my crowns that I had used before and I thought that they should be changed and I should use more natural crowns. I started to do research on the internet. When I found this place, they said that my gums might have problems and that's why my pain might be because of this. When I came to the clinic, we learnt that I had inflammation in my gums. Gum treatment was started quickly. first they made a proving and although it was a trial, it was very nice. After my recovery was complete, I went again and they took my impression. I had even more beautiful teeth than in the trial.
Pauline G. 25.10.2022
During our planned holiday in Turkey, I learnt that the dental service prices here are affordable. I met Mr. Bilal from the research I did on the internet. With his interest and quick guidance, we made an appointment to the dental clinic. I had a very fast and painless treatment process. At the end of the day, my veneer was natural and real like as I wanted.
Elena 02.05.2023
I was sure that my teeth would look different, so I thought I would feel better. I contacted with the recommendation of a friend. We met online, dentist Ege said that my smile was very aesthetic. At first I didn't understand why he did this, I thought it would be better to research other places, but during the conversation I realised that he cared about natural teeth. He also understood my concerns, I decided to be treated. Turkey is already a country where I have visited a lot, I like to spend summers in Antalya. I prepared my trip and set off for Istanbul. We completed my treatment in a short time, I am very satisfied.
