Restoring & Preserving Teeth
Fillings are a standard treatment for cavities caused by tooth decay. However, in some cases, a tooth may be damaged to the point where standard fillings aren’t sufficient for repairing and maintaining a functioning tooth.
In such situations, inlays and onlays may be your best option for saving your tooth and ensuring that you will not have to worry about further decay or damage over time.
What are Inlays & Onlays?
Inlays and onlays are a type of filling that provides a custom fitted covering over a cavity and damaged part of a tooth. Unlike standard fillings, which are inserted directly into the tooth by your dentist, and inlays and onlays are manufactured in a lab that makes use of a dental impression to create a custom. Inlays and onlays can be made of gold, porcelain, or a special resin.
How do I Make a Decision About this Treatment?
Upon your visit, your dentist can let you know if you have any cavities or other types of tooth damage. He or she can explain options for treatment, and make a professional assessment as to whether a standard filling or an inlay or onlay is the best way to address your situation.
