Inlays and onlays are tooth restorations that look and feel much more like our natural tooth. This means no more rough spots for your tongue to rub against and no more embarrassment about all the dark areas in your smile. With porcelain inlays and onlays, you can have a healthy white smile you can feel proud of.
An inlay is a restoration that sits inside the cusps or points of your molars. An onlay covers more of the tooth than an inlay but is not as extensive as a tooth crown. Both restorations are bonded directly to your tooth which helps keep your tooth stronger.
Glendora Inlays and Onlays
Just as with a tooth crown, it usually takes two visits to place an inlay or an onlay. During the first visit, your trusted Glendora dentist will prepare your tooth, take impressions and discuss and match the color of the tooth.
We’ll place a temporary filling until our laboratory completes the inlay or onlay restoration. When you come back to our Glendora denal office, the porcelain inlay or onlay will be bonded in place. You’ll leave with a healthy, natural looking restoration that looks perfectly beautiful in your smile.
