Inlays / Onlays

WHAT ARE INLAYS/ONLAYS?

Inlays and onlays can be made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin. These pieces are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth. An inlay, which is similar to a filling, is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth. An onlay is a more substantial reconstruction, similar to the inlay but extending out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth.

Traditionally, gold has been the material of choice for inlays and onlays. In recent years, however, porcelain has become increasingly popular due to its strength and color, which can potentially match the natural color of your teeth.

HOW ARE INLAYS AND ONLAYS APPLIED?

Inlays and onlays require two appointments to complete the procedure. During the first visit, the filling being replaced or the damaged or decaying area of the tooth is removed, and the tooth is prepared for the inlay or onlay. To ensure proper fit and bite, an impression of the tooth is made by the dentist, and sent to our in-house dental lab for fabrication. The dentist will then apply a temporary sealant on the tooth and schedule the next appointment.

At the second appointment, the temporary sealant is removed. Dr. Martinez will then make sure that the inlay or onlay fits correctly. If the fit is satisfactory, the inlay or onlay will be bonded to the tooth with a strong resin and polished to a smooth finish.

CONSIDERATIONS FOR INLAYS AND ONLAYS

Traditional fillings can reduce the strength of a natural tooth by up to 50 percent. As an alternative, inlays and onlays, which are bonded directly onto the tooth using special high-strength resins, can actually increase the strength of a tooth by up to 75 percent. As a result, they can last from 10 to 30 years. In some cases, where the damage to the tooth is not extensive enough to merit an entire crown, onlays can provide a very good alternative.

Patient Review By Anh Ni N

Wow!!! Simply amazing. I had 8 ultra-thin veneers done (top front teeth). It is incredibly natrual looking. True to its name, my teeth does not look or feel bulky. Dr. Tri and the dental technicians are true artists in the way they coordinated the color and the shape of my teeth. I especially appreciate how the staff was able to resolve an issue with the temporary venees for me. It is a sizable investment but is still a fraction of what it would cost State side. I so enjoy smiling and looking into the mirror now and my husband is equally thrilled. I highly reccommend Dr. Hung Dental and Dr. Tri, especially for veneer work as I believe he is the best in the field, nationally and internationally.

Patient Review By Patricia Blanch

We were referred to Dr. Hung and Associates by friends. We were thrilled with the information given us by Angela. She answered our questions clearly and replied to all our queries immediately. All transport from the airport to the hotel and then to and from the hotel to appointments was done by Mr. Van who is an excellent driver and supported us so much. We were greeted each time we had appointments very warmly by the receptionist. Angela stayed with us continually through our journey, speaking English clearly and understanding our concerns. My husband's teeth needed huge restoration. The analysis was delayed and a professional plan was put in place. The pain was minimized through the process with the doctors and regularly taking X-rays to check the accuracy of the plan. We are thrilled with the final results, as the receptionist of the hotel said, "Your husband is a young handsome man!". I had ceramic veneers placed. I am soo happy with the results. I would personally like to thank Dr. Tran Minh Tri and Dr. Doan Thi Minh Huong for their care, thoughtfulness made the experience a pleasure. I am thrilled with my smile. 🙂 My husband would like to thank Dr. Ngoc Cong Uan who spent many, many hours together with the restoration of his teeth. The results are amazing! We are thrilled with the smile he has in comparison to when we arrived. We would like to thank the team at Dr. Hung's for their care, professional process of repair and rejuvenation. We will be very happy to refer others to the clinic. We believe we are happier and healthier because now we can smile and laugh with inner confidence. Thank you very much!

Patient Review By Beverly Nola Westcoast

I had 6 fillings, a root canal, 2 crowns, an extraction, a bridge the whole treatment! My daughter lives in Saigon and I set her the task of finding a clinic for the overwhelming amount of work I needed done! She contacted several and visited HD where Liz showed her around and made the decision very easy. While I intended to get a lot of work done I increased the treatement two fold. Dr Tan was amazing and very patient as I am not the bravest patient. The amazing assistant Thuy was there holding my hand the entire time. I can not recommend the clinic highly enough as none of what I had done was straightforward and I am extremely happy with the outcome! Thank You All!!"

I would recommend Dr Hung to anybody considering any kind of dental treatment. “I needed veneers a bridge 9 crowns and teeth whitening done. It was extremely overpriced for this in Australia so I started researching the internet and found Dr Hung.The treatment plan sounded amazing so i went ahead and booked my flights and first appointment. From the first email to the last appointment the whole experience has been an absolute breeze and at an extremely affordable price. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the facilities are above 5 stars.. I would recommend Dr Hung to anybody considering any kind of dental treatment. You won't regret it!!”

Patient Review By Tara Bayes

I had 5 crowns, 4 root canals and a implant myself and will be returning in 6 months time to have more implants and my treatment completed myself and my partner Adam didn’t like attending dentist we were scared due to bad treatment in Australia and we simply couldn’t afford what Australia offers this has and will change my life from covering my mouth when talking to people and having no confidence. The staff goes above and beyond and are amazing and make you feel comfortable and pain free. My partners Father has come and had a lot of work done previously and the finished result was amazing the care was above anything in Australia. We will be telling everyone and anyone what an amazing job Dr Hung & Associates have done and clinic is beautiful clean and the staff amazing you couldn't ask for anything more they have out done our expectations, we are over the moon with the work we have had done we can smile again without scaring our kids which means more than i can put into words.”

Patient Review By Nolan J

Seeing Dr Hung was the best decision that we could have made” (21 September 2016) “My Husband and I decided to come to Vietnam to see Dr Hung as we both needed some serious dental work. I did do plenty of research on my computer and also asked people who had had dental work done in Vietnam and Dr Hung name kept coming up, So after much consultation, we made our way to see Dr Hung which was the best decision that we could have made. My husband had a plate for nearly forty years and now he has bridges and it seemed so easy for the dentist here to achieve this. I myself have a terrible fear of dentist, but I should have not worried as Dr Loc was amazing, so gentle and kind and so caring to put up with me and all my fears and made me feel completly at ease thank you Dr Loc and thank you to Dr Uan for being so professional and kind and for doing such a wonderful job of my Husbands teeth.”

The price was exceptional value and quality of the work world class. Utmost care and accuracy at all times. Great work! All the staff were exceptionally friendly, caring and attentive, great people all round. I chose Dr Hung’s clinic as from the reviews on the internet were positive, so was my nephews review, he had work done 3 years prior and highly recommended Dr Hung.. I did not have any regrets first impression was how professional and well the clinic was organized. Great Team highly, highly recommended. My 2 sisters had also joined me and all are very happy.
