Quality Dental Care is here for you when you require a restoration for damaged or decayed teeth. Our team strives to exceed your every expectation and make every visit to our offices positive and comfortable.
While we offer a complete range of options to repair your damaged or decayed teeth, we will always try to go with the most conservative treatment when it makes sense for your condition. We might recommend inlays and onlays when a traditional filling isn’t enough. These treatments, which are more conservative than crowns, save more of the tooth’s structure and can repair the tooth after moderate decay or other damage. Inlays and onlays are also known as “indirect fillings,” because unlike traditional fillings which are created on the tooth; they are made outside of the tooth. Inlays and onlays are created from an impression of the tooth and then bonded to the surface of the tooth.
Inlays are used when the damage is confined to the chewing surface of the tooth between the cusps. Onlays are more extensive and cover at least one cusp of the tooth. Unlike traditional fillings, inlays and onlays strengthen the structure of the tooth. They are natural looking and allow the tooth to function normally.
