At Lakeview Pointe Dentistry, we want you to look and feel your best. Don’t let a simple hole in your tooth turn into a major problem. We provide inlays and onlays that can improve the structure and integrity of your tooth.
What Are the Differences Between Inlays and Onlays?
When a tooth has a small hole but the raised part of your tooth is intact, an inlay may be a good solution. Inlays are made in a lab and are created to be directly applied and bonded to your tooth. The inlay blends in with your tooth and your smile.
Onlays may be recommended when your tooth has become weakened or damaged by decay. An onlay covers the tooth’s surface, providing all-around protection without filling your mouth full of metal. The onlays are color-matched to your natural teeth so they can blend in with your beautiful smile.
