Inlays and Onlays

Most everyone has at least a filling or two in their mouth, and most of us feel as if these dark and dismal spots on our teeth detract from the beauty of our smile. If you find that your fillings are keeping you from laughing, smiling, and otherwise showing off your teeth, inlays and onlays can correct this problem. By choosing this procedure, you will never have to hide your smile behind your hand again.

Rather than the dark or metallic look of traditional fillings, inlays and onlays are made from porcelain and are crafted to match the look of your natural teeth. This near perfect match gives the impression of perfect, beautiful teeth while correcting the same dental problems as a traditional silver type filling. Once they are in place, your smile will return to the same healthy look you had before you had your original fillings put in.

Inlays are used generally in the case of a single filling. The filling material is crafted from porcelain to fit into the gap left by the original dental work. These are the perfect answer to a problem spot left by a smaller cavity that damaged your confidence with your smile. An onlay is used on the case of a more serious cavity that covers a large area of a tooth or series of teeth.

Inlays and onlays are individually made to match the shape and color of your own teeth. This gives them a near seamless look that gives you the beautiful results you desire most. Everyone wants a perfect smile and inlays and onlays allow those with dental work the chance to get that smile back.
