Here at Roseville Dental Practice, we are proud to offer dental inlays and onlays for our patients.
Dental inlays and onlays are considered a conservative method of treating damaged teeth. They are used instead of placing a crown and can be white or metal. Some dentists even use inlays and onlays to treat tooth decay. Instead of filling in the tooth, your dentist may use dental inlays and onlays depending on the state of your tooth.
Dental inlays and onlays are custom built in a dental lab and then fitted to your tooth.
The difference between inlays and onlays depends on how much of your tooth it covers. If the material is bonded to the center of the tooth, it is considered an inlay. If it covers your whole tooth or biting surface, it is considered an onlay.
If you have any questions about dental inlays or onlays, don’t hesitate to contact us today at 01902 678202.
