For maximum protection of your teeth, and your smile, earlier detection and conservative treatment are a winning combination. The placement of a crown requires a significant amount of tooth removal, which may not be necessary to address your concerns. We prefer to help you retain natural tooth structure, with the preferred solution of inlays and onlays.
We may recommend this advanced and high-quality option, as inlays and onlays:
- Requires minimal tooth removal.
- Maintains maximum tooth integrity.
- Provides sufficient bite force resistance.
- Bonds to the tooth, seals off and protects against recurring decay.
- Functions and looks like your natural teeth.
Along with an understanding of bite alignment, a cosmetic dentist has acquired the high level of skill required to leave healthy areas of your tooth intact; and to design the exact restoration needed to precisely fit and blend with your tooth structure.
Do you have minor decay issues? Visit our dentist’s office and they could be history for decades to come – replaced with strength, durability, protection and brilliance.
A Conservative & Classy Solution
Have you ever gone to see a dentist, knowing that you had a cavity, only to leave the office disappointed by the grim news that your tooth actually required a root canal instead?
What if the opposite were true? Dental issues that once might have necessitated more invasive restoration to repair are now often accomplished through the use of inlays or onlays alone.
Since they require so little tooth removal, these procedures are considered some of the most conservative – especially if a porcelain bonding technique is used. We exclusively use porcelain bonding. Why? Color matching and retention, maximum adhesiveness and natural beauty. In dentistry, less is always more.
The benefits of inlays and onlays also make them ideal to replace older mercury fillings or cavities that are medium to large in size. The process begins and ends in 10 to 14 days. Most of our dental guests only require preventative or minimally restorative techniques. Make an appointment, stop by and discover how easy it is to enjoy that Hollywood smile.
