When Koch Park Dental in Florissant MO repairs a tooth that has dental caries or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. We’re talking tooth-specific locale here.
If there is a chip, crack, or dental caries on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often created to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at Koch Park Dental. They 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.
At Koch Park Dental the inlays and onlays we place for our patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. We have the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to design the restoration and create an exact match.
Koch Park Dental inlays and onlays:
- Are stain resistant
- Do not cause tooth sensitivity
- Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
- Strengthen the tooth and protect against further decay or damage
