Dental Inlays and Onlays
Traditional fillings can reduce the strength of a natural tooth significantly.
The preferred alternative treatment for replacing old fillings is to use porcelain inlays and onlays, which are bonded directly to the remaining tooth structure. In some cases, Gold can also be used where appearance is not a major concern.
When the damage to your tooth does not require an entire crown, but more than half of the tooth biting surface is damaged, Dr. Huynh-Le and Dr. Long Huynh will recommend inlays and onlays to conserve your dentition.
Onlays are more substantial than inlays in regard to tooth structure reconstruction. This procedure requires two visits to allow time for your restorations to be custom-made in a high-quality technical dental lab.
