Porcelain inlays, onlays and veneers are another popular way to improve the beauty and look of your smile. Here at South Point Family Dentistry, we offer a number of cosmetic dentistry choices with the goal of giving you a long-lasting, winning smile.
Restoration Through Onlays
Onlays, sometimes referred to as partial crowns, are custom fillings made of composite material, gold or tooth-colored porcelain. Porcelain onlays are made to resemble your natural tooth. Onlays are often a popular option instead of full crowns, as less of your tooth is removed in the process. They are essentially the same as inlays, though inlays are primarily used for larger restorations. Either process can be easily completed in just two visits.
Conservative Tooth Repair Through Inlays
Inlays are a conservative option to repair more major tooth damages. These custom fillings are also made of the same materials as onlays. Inlays are used to repair your teeth when they have large defective fillings or damages caused by decay or trauma. They are also an alternative to traditional silver or composite fillings, in part because less tooth structure is removed.
