Porcelain Inlays & Onlays in Flower Mound, TX
What’s an Inlay or Onlay?
A tooth may need more than just a filling at some point, but not a full crown. In this case, you might be told to get an inlay or an onlay. The inlays will be put in the tooth’s cusps or grooves, while the onlays will go on the top. These restorations last long and are made of high-quality materials. They will bring back the beauty of your tooth and smile!
Why are Inlays and Onlays Needed?
If you have large cavities or a large area that has been filled before, you may need an inlay or an onlay. The restoration could also help if your tooth is only cracked or broken at the very top. When a full crown is put on a tooth, inlays and onlays keep the whole tooth safe. They are stronger than fillings and can generally last longer.
Who’s a Candidate for Inlays & Onlays?
