Dental Inlays and Onlays in Charlotte, NC
Restore the strength of your tooth if it has a cavity or it has been damaged. Dental inlays are necessary if a filling is too large, creating the potential for fracture. At Carolina Dental Arts of Blakeneyin Charlotte, North Carolina, we provide dental inlays that look like your mature teeth and are practically as strong. In fact, with proper care, your inlay can last as long as 30 years.
Our experienced dentists create dental inlays that look exactly like your natural teeth with perfect cusps, colors, and contours. Most importantly, we use state-of-the-art procedures to create custom inlays of composite, gold, or tooth-colored porcelain. Some of the reasons patients receive inlay restorations in place of fillings include:
|• Superior Fit
• Exact Tooth Color
• Tooth Structure Safeguard
• Easy Tooth Cleaning
|• Tight-Space Fulfillments
• Strength & Stability
• Weak Tooth Protector
What Are Dental Onlays?
If your tooth has sustained damage, but it is not extensive enough for a crown, then dental onlays are excellent treatment options. In fact, capping a damaged tooth with a crown actually removes tooth structure creating the potential for problems. However, dental onlays cover a portion or the entire biting surface of your tooth. They are durable, and they last a long time. In addition, they create less strain on the structure of your existing tooth.
Affordable Porcelain Inlays & Onlays
A crown can be costly when you need tooth restoration. Save money while enjoying stronger and more beautiful teeth when you come to us for dental inlays. Typically, the procedure is performed in two visits. Our dentists first take highly accurate impressions or molds of your tooth in order to create the inlay. After that, we remove any decay and old fillings and provide a temporary filling until your next appointment.
Once we receive the porcelain inlays from the lab, we carefully and accurately cement your inlay into place. As highly experienced clinicians, we ensure that the inlay fits property and that you enjoy a beautifully restored smile again. We provide the same procedures for porcelain onlays. At the end of your appointment, we also offer care instructions to ensure your porcelain onlays and inlays stay strong for many, many years.
