Dental restorations repair damaged enamel and restore the shape and function of your teeth. I nlays and onlays may be used in cases where other fillings may not be ideal. They can restore larger areas of the tooth without compromising its structural stability, strengthening the tooth and providing protection against the chewing forces of everyday use. Inlays are indirect reconstructions that fill in areas of tooth enamel between the cusps, or points, of the tooth. Onlays are used to restore one or more of a tooth’s cusps following damage or decay. Both inlays and onlays can be made from porcelain or gold and fit seamlessly into the healthy tooth structure, efficiently preventing cavity recurrence. Inlays and onlays can also replace older fillings that have deteriorated, and porcelain offers invisible restoration to preserve the cosmetic appearance of your smile.
Park 56 Dental offers inlays and onlays in addition to traditional filling methods to restore your smile to its natural beauty.
