Dental inlays and onlays are used to repair and restore mild to moderately damaged back teeth. Your Los Angeles may choose an inlay or onlay over a dental crown to fix a cracked or fractured tooth that is not severely damaged.
The best candidates for restoration with an inlay or onlay have too much tooth decay or damage to be treated successfully with a dental filling, but still, have enough healthy tooth structure to avoid a crown.
There are even more benefits to using dental inlays and onlays instead of amalgam fillings, including:
During the first of two appointments, your Los Angeles dentist removes existing fillings that need to be replaced, under local anesthesia. Dr. Kreymer then takes a mold of your tooth and sends it to an outside lab. When the new dental inlay or dental onlay is received, it is cemented in place at your second visit. Crafted of porcelain or composite material, the restoration will blend in perfectly with the treated area and the surrounding teeth. Dental inlays and onlays are an easy procedure to offer at this Los Angeles office.
