Inlays and onlays are one of the restorative dental procedures offered at Premier Dental in Idaho Falls ID. Our team can leverage a dental onlay or inlay when a tooth is fractured but does not need a crown due to sufficient stability.
Benefits of Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are minimally invasive and allow us to help you keep more of your natural tooth, which is always a goal at Premier Dental.
Inlays and onlays can last for decades, providing strength to the tooth unlike a filling. These restorations also offer stain resistance and can even help seal out bacteria. When compared to a traditional filling, a dental onlay covers the whole biting surface of your tooth. An inlay fills cusp space. Inlays and onlays are made from porcelain, gold, or from composite tooth-colored material that blends with your smile. You might also consider the option of porcelain veneers to improve your smile.
We will examine your teeth to determine which type of dental inlay and onlay is necessary to use. To schedule an appointment, give Premier Dental a call or request an appointment online.
