Dental Inlays and Onlays in Sun City, Sun City West, and Litchfield Park, Arizona
Dental Inlays And Onlays For Repairing Damaged Teeth. Similar to a filling, an inlay fills the inner areas of the treated tooth, and an onlay covers a more extensive surface area.
Inlays and onlays in our Sun City & Sun City West Arizona locations, are perfect for those who need a bit more work than a dental filling but do not have enough damage to require a dental crown. Our dentists can gladly help you determine the most applicable and conservative treatment during a consultation at Burns Dentistry.
What Are Inlays and Onlays?
Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are used to repair damage or decay. If the damage is not extensive enough to warrant the use of a dental crown but is too serious to be repaired with a filling, our experienced dentist may recommend a dental inlay or onlay.
Also known as partial crowns, inlays and onlays are custom created from porcelain, composite resin material, or gold. Our dentists will ensure that your custom inlay or onlay perfectly fits your tooth to restore the health, function, and appearance of your smile. Once placed, they are virtually undetectable in the mouth and conserve much of your natural tooth structure.
Both inlays and onlays are used to restore damaged teeth. The difference between a dental inlay and a dental onlay is that an inlay is used when the damage does not reach the cusps of the tooth, while a dental onlay is used when the damage extends to one or more of the cusps.
We will help you determine whether you need a dental inlay or onlay to restore your smile. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental inlays and onlays in Sun City. We are eager to restore your smile!
