Are Onlays and Inlays Easily Stained?

Posted on 2/7/2022 by Dr. Castellon
Are Onlays and Inlays Easily Stained?If tooth decay causes sudden significant damage to your teeth, you may need a reconstructive procedure that helps restore your smile and mouth functionality. The same will also fix the damage caused by fall accidents and injuries. Even though oral procedures like root canal can be effective in fixing this problem, onlays and inlays are a more reliable option. Thse oral appliances are typically partial crowns that work like dental fillings. They help restore the tooth structure, strength, and appearance. Inlays and onlays come with a wide range of advantages. One of the most essential ones is that they are stain resistant.

Stain Resistance

Without a doubt, the most significant benefit of inlays and onlays is the fact that they are stain resistant. The oral appliances are made from highly durable materials that can match the shade of your natural teeth. Given that the material doesn't easily stain, it will remain white for a long time. Besides, the shade used to make these oral appliances doesn't change even after several years, meaning you don't have to worry about dental stains.

Apart from stain resistance, inlays and inlays are vital because they keep the rest of your natural teeth intact. This makes it easy to clean and maintain them. Inlays and onlays will also not shrink no matter the circumstances — this prevents the risk of exposing your teeth. Therefore, these oral appliances play an essential role in keeping your oral health in excellent condition. It is important that you take good care of your inlays and onlays to avoid any damages. You should brush them regularly to avoid plaque buildup. Keep in mind that presence of bacteria could result in various oral infections. For the best results, you should also floss them to remove tiny food particles stuck in hard-to-reach areas. Call us for more information on inlays and onlays.
