Everything about your smile communicates information about who you are to those looking at it. A happy, healthy, vibrant smile that is free of dental decay or evidence of excessive dental work is one that lets people who see it know that you take your health seriously – and there’s never anything wrong in conveying that message.
Unfortunately, even the most health-minded individual can be susceptible to dental decay that requires a filling or other form of restoration, and the good news is that with the use of inlays and onlays from our dentist at Fanwood Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, your dental work will look natural to anyone who sees it!
Dental inlays and onlays are used in modern dentistry to restore or repair a tooth that’s been damaged by dental decay. However, unlike old-fashioned silver-looking material, inlays and onlays are tooth-colored, so they help your smile look natural after the procedure has been completed.
The difference between the two procedures is determined by the placement of the restoration. Two other key benefits to these treatments versus traditional fillings, beyond their natural appearance, are that they preserve more of your natural tooth structure, and they are more durable than other materials.
Our dentist will provide a complete treatment plan and provide you with further information about your inlay or onlay procedure before treatment begins. We’ll also discuss other restoration methods such as traditional fillings or dental crowns so you’ll be able to make the choice that’s best for your needs.
