Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are used to restore your teeth in cases where they are broken, chipped or a cavity is present. Unlike a Dental Filling the restoration is made from 100% pure porcelain and is designed and measured to fit into the gap/ cavity perfectly. The result of an Inlay or Onlay is that unnecessary pressure is not applied to the walls of your tooth (as is the case with a dental Filling). Your tooth is therefore preserved for a longer period of time. In the case of an Inlay, the damaged area of the tooth will be removed and the surrounding area prepared and cleaned for the restoration to be inset in the resulting socket. In the case of an Onlay, the damage is to the surface of your tooth and the affected area is removed to an extent where the restoration actually sits on the resulting gap rather than inside it. Both procedures are completed to the clinic’s usual and consistent high standards and using the best materials available. It is vital that an Inlay or Onlay is a perfect fit to ensure the area is completely sealed in order to preserve the tooth underneath.
The VIP Clinics in Antalya and Fethiye have their own, on-site laboratory/ dental ceramic studio fully equipped with all the relevant technology enabling the clinic to create your Inlays and Onlays in the clinic itself using computer aided software and a CAD/ CAM technology that mills the restorations to ensure a perfect fit. Following your consultation, the Dentist will take an impression of the area that requires an Inlay or Onlay and a design is then created using the Sirona smile design suite. The Dental Technicians create a bespoke design that is accurate to the shape of the restoration required. The design is then sent to the CAD/ CAM machine that fabricates the Inlay/ Onlay. Having this dedicated studio means the clinic are able to fabricate Inlays and Onlays using premium materials to an exemplary standard and without the need for an outside laboratory to complete any aspect of the procedure, saving you time and money. If you only need a few Inlays or Onlays they can be completed in a single day.
How long in advance do I need to book my treatment?
We usually ask for a minimum of a ten weeks notice before you plan to arrive in Turkey for your treatment, however we have been known to arrange dental treatment in much less time. The VIP clinics are larger than average and appropriately staffed and equipped to facilitate high quality treatments in a short time frame. If you are travelling to Turkey soon or you are already on your holiday, please contact us and we will do our very best to secure you an appointment. If you have not yet booked your holiday to Turkey, please contact us once you have some confirmed dates in mind before you proceed in making your flight and hotel reservations. We can assist with flights and accommodation if needed and provide advice in relation to all aspects of your travel.
Do I need to make two visits? The first for my consultation and the second for my treatment.
It is entirely your choice as to how many visits you would like to make to Turkey, however it will be more economical for you to make one visit for your consultation and subsequently your treatment in the same visit, should you wish to proceed.
The timeframe needed for each of the treatments is shown on each treatment page. If you are planning multiple treatments or you would like to double check you can get in touch with us and we will advise accordingly and answer any other questions you may have. The timescale advised allows for both your consultation and the completion of your treatment. The usual process involves your first visit to include your consultation and the start of your treatment should you wish to proceed, which will allow plenty of time to complete your treatment before you return home.
There is no charge for any aspect of the consultation to include Panoramic X-Rays and no pressure to proceed with treatment. If you would not like to proceed with treatment following your consultation, no charges will be made and you will be taken back to your hotel/ accommodation.
