Dental Inlays and Onlays are restorative methods used to repair the back teeth with mild to moderate decay, or are used for cracked teeth that are not sufficiently damaged enough to need a crown. There are benefits to Inlays and Onlays in comparison to metal fillings. They are incredibly durable, made from composite resin that is hard-wearing and can last up to 30 years. Dental inlays and Onlays actually help to strengthen the teeth up to 75%, unlike tradition fillings that can actually reduce the strength of a tooth up to 50%. Because of this strengthening effect, Inlays and Onlays help to promote the life of a tooth and prevent it from further decay in the future.
Dr. Patel and his staff at Family & Cosmetic Dental Care have invested in a system by CEREC that gives them the ability to fabricate custom Inlays and Onlays in a much shorter amount of time. This allows for patients to have their teeth fully restored in convenient appointment times so that they are able to get back to their normal lives as quickly as possible. Inlays and Onlays are also made out of a composite resin material that closely matches the natural color of the teeth. This makes Inlays and Onlays virtually impossible for other people to spot, ensuring that patients do not feel self-conscious about having dental work done.
If you are interested in cosmetic procedures to restore a damaged or decaying tooth, make an appointment with our Johns Creek dental specialists at Family & Cosmetic Dental Care. We are accepting new patients and would love to meet and have a consultation with you regarding the process of inlays and onlays and other cosmetic procedures and if they are the right choice for you.
