If you have damaged or decayed teeth, Roseville Topsmiles can help. We specialize in a wide range of treatment options to correct your teeth and get your smile looking stunning once again, including the use of inlays and outlays.
When the damage to a tooth is too severe for a traditional filling but does not require a crown, inlays and onlays are methods of restoring tooth structure. Inlays and onlays are sometimes known as indirect fillings because unlike standard fillings that are created directly on the tooth; these restorations are made outside of the tooth and then bonded to the surface of the tooth. Inlays and onlays do not weaken the tooth structure like a regular filling but actually strengthen it.
An inlay is used when the damage is completely within the cusp tips or points of the tooth. When the damage is more extensive and involves more tooth surface including at least one of the tooth cusps, an onlay is used. After your inlay or onlay is bonded, your tooth will look natural and function just as it did previously.
At Roseville Topsmiles, we can assist you with all your oral health needs from routine checkups to repairing damaged teeth and everything in between. If you are in pain or have a damaged tooth in need of repair, schedule your appointment today to learn if inlays or onlays are the right solution to correct your bite and improve your smile.
