Restore Your Smile With Inlays & Onlays
At My Cherry Creek Dentist in Denver, we offer inlays and onlays to help restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma. Providing more protection than a filling, these durable restorations can be a viable way to protect and strengthen a damaged tooth, and with diligent care, they can last for many years!
What are inlays and onlays?
Inlays are used to fill in the areas between the cusps of teeth, while onlays cover one or more cusps. Inlays and onlays can also be referred to as partial crowns since they’re created to fit snugly over a damaged tooth.
How are these restorations placed?
We use a process known as dental bonding where the inlay or onlay is placed directly onto the tooth and bonded to it using either resin or cement. We then shape it to match your natural teeth for a seamless and natural-looking smile.
Is everyone a candidate for inlays and onlays?
These restorations can be a great option for patients with significant decay or tooth damage that cannot be adequately fixed with a traditional filling. Additionally, they are recommended for those who have allergies to certain metals used in traditional fillings as they can be made from allergen-free materials like porcelain or composite resin.
If you suspect inlays and onlays might be right for you, contact My Cherry Creek Dentist today to find out more. Our team is here to help restore your teeth to optimal health. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
