Do you have damaged or decayed teeth? Looking for an affordable option to repair your smile? With E4D same-day dental inlays and onlays from Village Family Dentist, you can! In certain cases, a dental filling may actually compromise the structure of your tooth, causing more extensive damage. Other times, a crown may not be necessary to repair an issue, so an inlay and onlay may be a more suitable option.
Inlays are a restorative dental treatment which can be used to repair damage such as chips, cracks or cavities within the chewing surfaces of teeth. Depending on your preference, composite or amalgam can be used.
Much like inlays, dental onlays are a restorative dental treatment used to repair damage to teeth. Onlays, however, can repair a larger area that extends past the outer ridges of teeth. Onlays can also be created using composite or amalgam depending upon your preference.
Unlike dental fillings which can actually reduce the structural integrity of a tooth, inlays and onlays can provide extra strength. For patients with more damage than a filling can fix but not enough for dental crowns, inlays and onlays are the perfect, affordable option. The material chosen will be bonded to your existing, damaged tooth, protecting it from further damage and decay.
