Your Smile Could Benefit From Inlays & Onlays
When the biting surface of a back tooth needs a restoration, the best choice is often a dental inlay or onlay made of resin. This restorative treatment is available at Tuttle Crossing Family Dental, your trusted dentist in Dublin.
More about inlays and onlays
The resin used is made of a mix of acrylic resin and microscopic particles that is shaped and curved for strength. We may recommend an inlay instead of a filling if a small amount of the tooth structure has vanished due to decay. Onlays also go in the tooth, but they stretch out onto the chewing surface of a back tooth to replace one or more cups. Back in the day, onlays were only made out of gold. Nowadays, most patients prefer ceramic/porcelain because they blend in with natural teeth.
Inlays & onlays may be ideal for…
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Cosmetic improvement
- Damaged fillings
- Extensive tooth decay.
These restorative treatments are applied to premolars (teeth right next to the molars) and molars (back teeth). At Tuttle Crossing Family Dental, your dentist in Dublin, we can match them to look just like your own pearly whites. That means you can take advantage of as many smile opportunities as you like and not be concerned about how your teeth will look.
