Rejuvenate Your Smile
Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that repair damaged or decayed teeth. They are most often recommended when a filling is not sufficient but a dental crown is not yet necessary. At It’s Dental Time in Burlington, we’ve seen the restorative effects of inlays and onlays time and time again, and we’re happy to discuss whether these restorations might be right for your needs!
What benefits do inlays & onlays offer?
Inlays and onlays help restore your tooth’s function and improve its overall appearance with a prosthetic that’s comprised of natural-looking materials. In addition, they also provide high-quality strength and durability, and because they require that less tooth structure be removed during placement, they also help preserve the integrity of your damaged tooth.
Is anyone a candidate for these restorations?
Most patients with a significantly damaged or decayed tooth will be a candidate for inlays and onlays. Of course, it’s best to undergo a thorough assessment with our team to determine if this procedure is the right option for you.
How do you care for these restorations?
In order to keep your inlays and onlays looking their best, you should brush and floss them regularly. It is also important to attend regular checkups with our team so we can examine the condition of your restorations.
