Inlays and Onlays

If your tooth’s biting surface is damaged, the doctors at Pacific Dental Group may recommend dental inlays and onlays as a conservative method of restoring your smile. Inlays and onlays can help reduce and remove sensitivity and tooth loss and are designed to give you a healthier and more appealing smile.

Dental inlays and onlays are made of porcelain, gold, or composite material. They are bonded to the damaged section of the tooth. An inlay, similar to a dental filling, is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth. An onlay extends out and over one or more of the cusps of your tooth and can be used when a complete crown is not necessary.

Inlays and onlays require two dental visits to complete. On your first visit, the doctor will begin by removing any old fillings, decay or damage found on the tooth. Then an impression is taken. Then the mold will be forwarded to the lab for fabrication. Finally, before you leave, the doctor will place a temporary sealant on the tooth and schedule you for another visit.

During your second appointment, the doctor removes the temporary sealant and checks the bite and fit of the inlay or onlay to ensure it fits properly. If the fit is satisfactory, the inlay or onlay is bonded to the tooth with an adhesive and the tooth will be polished to a smooth finish.

"Love love love my new dentist and staff! These guys are awesome from the front desk to making me feel relaxed about all the stuff my mouth needed. I was so chicken and now I can't see myself going to any other dentist! High five to my hygienist Danny who was super gentle and thorough with my deep cleaning of my teeth!!! Thank you guys for the awesome experience with all my visits. See your guys soon."

"Great Dentist, Great Staff. At 57 years-old, I've had several root canals, crowns, bridges, fillings, and extractions from many dentists, some who even advertise on radio. Having tooth-pain and not willing to wait 3 weeks for my regular dentist, I went to Dr. Julius in Montebello. I got an appointment the next day and two days later had major dental work on several of my teeth. (I just got home.) I had work done by Dr. Julius and 2 other dental specialists, also dealing with 2 other people of the excellent office staff there. Dentistry is both a preffession and a busines. Or is going to a restaurant only about the chef, and not the service? They didn't serve me food. They took care of my sh*t. Each and every one of them, all seeking the same outcome: to help me. Dr. Julius could advertise on radio, with higher prices. Maybe even on TV. I watched the finals of 'America's Got Talent' last night. Unfortunately, there were no dental offices on display. When it comes to dentistry and my teeth, I know talent. I watched the winners today."

"After looking for a new dentist. I settle for PDG as was greeted very nicely and the front receptionist was very sweet. The dentist & his asst. were very pleasant. I'll be staying for all my future dental visits and I can't wait to see how my new smile turns out. I really recommend this place to anybody who is a first time patients. Excellent service and reasonable prices, and cleans establishment, very professional but friendly as well."

"It's weird to say I loved getting the screws put to my teeth, but as far as dentists go, these guys are some of the best I've ever been to. Friendly staff as well. I recommend going to them if you're in the area and looking for some dental health care goodness."

"High Quality, Professional, Trustworthy. Going to the dentist usually makes people nervous, but the atmosphere here is so lighthearted and relaxing. You're definitely in good hands and won't have to worry about anything. Dr. Julius is very interactive, kind, and mindful of your comfort level at all times and it's so relieving to know that she knows what she's doing. My best dental experience by far :)"
