Outshine conventional fillings when restoring your confident smile. Porcelain Inlays and Onlays can heal your dental damage without the unsightly metal or composite filling. Our San Francisco Inlays and Onlays patients are overwhelmingly choosing this treatment over traditional fillings.
When repairing tooth decay, wear, or injury, modern dentistry offers many options. Inlays are custom designed porcelain fillings, precisely matched to your tooth and bonded permanently in place by your dentist. They can be used to repair teeth damaged by decay or injury. Since less of your tooth is removed in the process, an inlay can be more comfortable than placing a crown.
Onlays are similar to Inlays, in that they are custom-designed porcelain. An Onlay replaces one or more of the chewing cusps as well as any other areas in need of restoration. You may have heard Onlays referred to as 'partial crowns.
Inlays and Onlays can be placed in as little as two visits to our Fillmore District Dentist office.
Inlays and Onlays require no special care beyond proper oral hygiene and a healthy diet. Like all dental restorations, regular visits to our San Francisco Dentist office will help keep your Inlays and Onlays looking wonderful.
