Tooth decay can lead to any number of oral health problems. Thankfully, you have a wealth of options to repair the damage. With Mansfield Dental Center's porcelain inlays and onlays, you can restore your affected teeth without unsightly metal fillings.
Inlays are porcelain fillings explicitly crafted to fit your tooth. They can repair damage caused by decay as well as injury. Much less of your existing dental material needs to be removed, making the process faster and more comfortable than a traditional filling.
Thanks to the beautiful porcelain material, inlays are often undetectable, leading to a happier smile. Give us a call and learn why our Mansfield Inlay patients are so satisfied with their results. Onlays are similar, but provide a new chewing cusp for your tooth. You may have heard Onlays referred to as 'partial crowns.' Much like crowns, an only replaces much of the dental surface, but much of your existing is preserved, making the healing process much more comfortable.
“Dr Blodgett and staff are so friendly, professional and welcoming! I would highly recommend him!”
Are you dealing with any of the following? A new Inlay or Onlay may be the right choice for you.
First, your dentist will create a series of images and molds of the affected area. Your tooth will be numbed, and your dentist will remove any decay of old filling material. After placing the temporary filling, we will begin crafting your new Inlay or Onlay in our Mansfield dentist office.
Inlays and Onlays require no special care beyond proper oral hygiene and a healthy diet. Regular visits to the Mansfield Dental Center office will help keep your Inlays and Onlays looking wonderful. Call our Mansfield area dentist office today to see if Inlays and Onlays are right for you.
