Inlays & Onlays in Gramercy Park, NYC

If you haven’t heard about inlays & onlays, you’re not alone. Learn more about this tooth restoration procedure and how it can help you recreate a healthy smile.

What Are Dental Inlays and Onlays?

This dental restoration procedure lies somewhere between a filling and a crown. It involves a more complex process than a dental filling but proves less intensive than placing a permanent crown. This process makes an ideal option if you have one or more teeth that have too much damage for a filling but not enough damage to qualify for full dental crowns.

These types of restorative treatments use composite resin or porcelain to create a strong and natural-looking replacement for portions of broken, decaying, or otherwise damaged teeth. These options allow you to reclaim full biting and chewing functions and gain a more appealing smile.

Dental Inlays

Inlays are ideal for replacing decaying or damaged tooth areas within the central chewing surface of each tooth structure.

Dental Onlays

Onlays help repair one or more of the cusps, or biting points, of your teeth.

What To Expect at Your Inlay/Onlay Appointment

The first step includes scheduling and attending your appointment with the Lux Smiles office in Gramercy Park. When you come in, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and discuss which option best suits your needs. We will also provide educational materials to help you better understand the procedure and your aftercare steps.

One of our skilled and gentle doctors will carefully numb the area and remove the cavity, crack, or damaged area from the affected tooth to prevent it from spreading. After completing this step, it’s time to make an impression of your teeth to create a perfect mold. This mold will go to our partner lab, where the trained technicians will custom shape and sculpt your inlay or onlay using composite material.

While you wait for the permanent repair, we will place a temporary filling over the cleaned and prepared area of the tooth. After we receive your inlay or onlay from the lab, we will place and bond it to your tooth permanently before polishing it to perfection.

You may experience some minor and temporary discomfort following each appointment. Be sure to contact the Lux Smiles team if this discomfort continues or if you have any questions or concerns following your treatment.

All the staff was super nice and helpful -- front desk, hygienist. Dr. Khalife was very chill and kind; didn't even make me feel like a failure for having a cavity! (I swear I do all the things!) 10/10 would recommend Lux for all your teeth scraping needs.

I’ve been coming to this dentist office for quite some time - no matter what dentist I’ve worked with, they’ve always been phenomenal! They’re very good with pain management and understand that no one wants to do unneeded dental work. I’d give them 6 starts if possible.

Had a very positive experience every time I've gone to Lux Smiles. The office staff are very friendly and make you feel welcomed. The treatments were simple and Stacy was very helpful exploring options for me with a problem that I was having. I would happily recommend this dentist for general oral care.

Best dental office in NYC! I've been a patient for ten years and every experience has been positive (as positive as going to the dentist can be). Dr. Shin is kind and caring. Takes special care to be sure his patients are comfortable. The staff is amazing. Roseanne is the greatest! Nataliya is always so kind and gives every cleaning the utmost care. I've had a lot of dental issues in my life, and have been in good hands here. Between Dr. Shin, Nataliya, Roseanne, and formerly Dr. Kessler, I've always been pleased and would highly recommend this practice to anyone.
