Inlays & Onlays

Does your smile radiate health and beauty? With inlays and onlays, our dentists can replace your older metal fillings, and enjoy longer lasting protection with beautifully matched restorations. Inlays and onlays strengthen and protect the healthy areas of your natural teeth for years to come.

By conservatively replacing only areas of decay, inlays and onlays are great dental solutions by providing several compelling benefits:

  • Minimal tooth structure removal
  • Maximum tooth integrity
  • Sufficient bite resistance
  • Protect very well against decay
  • Easy to maintain and clean
  • Last significantly longer than normal fillings

If you have moderate decay or sensitivity in one or more molars, an inlay or onlay may be the right dental solution. We invite you to visit our dentists to talk about this option for better health and a dazzling smile. Beauty and Functionality: Dental Training and Expertise is a Must!

The beautiful simplicity of inlays and onlays are that they require minimal removal of tooth structure. Nevertheless, inlays and onlays also demand much greater dental expertise than fillings, so you need to make sure you find a dental provider capable of performing the procedure with skill and experience.

Our dentists carefully diagnoses and develops the treatment options available to his patients. Considering the state and health of the tooth for each patient is important when providing the most conservative dentistry that maintain optimum oral health. We also recommend a teeth whitening session before treatment so that both natural and manufactured enamel are dazzling white.

As your dentist we first examine the contour of the tooth, distinguishing between healthy areas and pockets of decay. The decayed pockets are then carefully removed, leaving the area primed for restoration. An onlay or inlay is then inserted and bonded to the tooth, leaving a beautiful work of art behind.

Inlays and onlays are ideal replacements for older, unsightly amalgam fillings. Schedule an appointment with the team today and determine whether they are right for you.
