Inlays

Dental inlays and onlays are some of the strongest and most lifelike dental restorations available. After your mouth has been anesthetized we prepare the tooth in much the same way we would for a standard filling. When the tooth has been prepared to our satisfaction, an impression is made and sent to a dental lab. You will usually be required to wear a temporary filling until the restoration is fabricated. With proper care, your inlay or onlay will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come.

Decayed teeth may require an inlay to restore strength and health to the natural tooth structure   The decayed portion of the tooth is removed from the sound tooth structure.   An inlay is fabricated to match the look and feel of your natural teeth. This restoration often resembles a puzzle piece.   In most cases the restoration will completely blend into the natural tooth structure.
