When we repair a decayed or damaged tooth at The Center for Dental Anesthesia in Alexandria, the procedure we use depends on the location of the problem.
If there is a chip, crack, or tooth decay on the biting surface of a tooth, an inlay or onlay is often created to restore it.
Inlays and onlays are usually bigger than a conventional filling, yet smaller than a complete crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.
Our inlays and onlays:
- Are stain resistant
- Do not result in tooth sensitivity
- Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
- Strengthen the tooth and safeguard against further decay or degeneration
