Inlays & Onlays San Antonio TX

In our previous page, we discussed about dental crowns.

Inlays & Onlays are the repairings that are used for the teeth. While the decay depends from mild to moderate, there can be cracks too, that is depicted on the fractured teeth. They are not sufficiently damaged enough to get a crown.

Initially, Inlays were used in place of the fillings that had decay in a minute space. This is made out of gold and is fitted inside the tooth.

Why should you get them instead of metal fillings:

  • They are durable and are made out of the materials that are hard-wear and can last up to 30 years.
  • There are up to 75% chances that traditional metal fillings can minimise the strength of your teeth and gums.
  • Inlays and Onlays give durability and also prevents the need for any such treatment in the near future.

Onlays are also fitted inside the tooth and extended on the chewing surface. They can replace one or more cusps. As we all know, more and more patients request the same alike onlay, and it’s making is from ceramic/porcelain. It allows the restoration to be stuck with the tooth. This entire process of bonding can strengthen the tooth and seal it.

It takes only two appointments that the treatment can be completed and the damaged area can be cured
