What are Dental Inlays and Onlays?
Identified between a tooth-colored filling and a full crown, an inlay or onlay can restore a decayed or damaged tooth. Used on molars and pre-molars, an inlay covers the indented center of a tooth while an onlay covers the tooth's upper, rounded edges. Like dental fillings and crowns, inlays and onlays can be made with different materials — porcelain, metal, and composite resin. Our dental team is dedicated to helping our patients better understand onlays and inlays and how they can enhance your oral health so you can make the best choice about how to treat your tooth. For more information contact East Village Dental Center to schedule your consultation in New York, NY.
Who Can Have Dental Inlays and Onlays?
An inlay or onlay is a fantastic option when you have a damaged tooth or a large cavity that is too big to get filled but doesn't require the full coverage of a crown. At your dental exam, we will examine your digital x-rays to determine the ideal treatment for your tooth. If an inlay or onlay is chosen, we will discuss the available materials that will best meet your requirements.
East Village Dental Center Reviews
Update [3/23/2023]: The office manager called me and assured me they will note my concerns and look to conduct better care of patients moving forward. I felt she was sincere and have since updated my review. I hope they continue to work on their patient care / Customer service as they are a vital health care facility in the community. Updated 1/30/2023 - Not sure what’s happened at East Village Dental however I think it’s a change in the management team that handles customer service. While they have updated the way they conduct business when you call they rarely pick up the phone, they do not return calls, they don’t have an emergency line for concerns post surgery. After an uncovering I developed canker sores and called them for a follow up they told me they’d call me back and instead I went the entire weekend in pain (see attached photo at your discretion). I did use warm water and salt to soothe the area but maybe they could have prescribed something to alleviate the pain which led to several days of headaches. There was little concern about my pain/discomfort which I’m very surprised from a place that I really liked and highly recommended just 1-2 years ago. After my crowns are in place I’m not sure I’ll go to them for a cleaning letting alone any serious oral surgery. Until they get a team that’s actually concerned about the customer/Patient stay away from EVD.
Excellent communication and kind staff. I have been coming here for ten years and I’m always kindly greeted, and well informed on the treatment expected. Highly recommended if you haven’t found that dental clinic that leaves you feeling like that’s the one. They are very professional and very efficient, as well as very accommodating. Cheerio
A wonderful practice! Both in their care and bedside manner, East Village Dental Center delivers ideal experiences. They’ve been serving my family and the community at large for many years. The receptionists are so nice and welcoming. The hygienist hooked me up with a painless cleaning and the doc was lovely. One can witness how imperative the reception desk being bilingual is here and how courtesy, a smile, cleanliness and quality care are so important to the diverse demographic that surrounds this gem. It’s walking distance for me, but I’d travel here if it wasn’t! Bravo!
Let me start by saying this dental office is for the community 100%, they are transparent about pricing from the moment you talk to them unlike many dentists in the area which I appreciated! Vanessa and Christine are funny , sweet, honest and understanding ! They took my concerns and budget seriously. Never met receptionists that are compassionate until these two! They squeezed me last minute ( literally) in and the dentist whose name was Amish was so informative and explained my crown procedure. Thank you all!! See you soon !! My two sisters get services here now I see why! 💚💚💚

What Can I Expect when Getting a Dental Inlay or Onlay?
After applying local anesthesia to numb your gums, we will begin by removing areas of decay. When the enamel is cleaned, impressions will be made of the tooth so your customized inlay and/or onlay can be crafted. Once the inlay or onlay is ready, we will have you come back in so we can carefully place and bond it to your tooth. We may polish the edges or adjust the fit so that your tooth is suitably coated and feels right.
What is Recovering from Getting an Inlay or Onlay Like?
If only local anesthesia is used, you can leave after your appointment and return to your regular activities. You might feel mild discomfort, swelling, or sensitivity for a couple of days once your inlay or onlay is placed. Please contact our New York City office should you have any concerns after your procedure. Your inlay or onlay should be taken care of like your natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing. You need to schedule yearly dental examinations and bi-annual cleanings at East Village Dental Center so we can assess the wear and health of the onlay or inlay. With appropriate maintenance, it should last for many years before needing to be repaired or replaced.
