When dentist Michael Tornow of Sundance Dental & Orthodontics in Farmington 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; it doesn’t matter whether you live in Farmington, Bloomfield, or Rio Rancho.)
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 Sundance Dental & Orthodontics. 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 Sundance Dental & Orthodontics, the inlays and onlays we place for our patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. dentist Michael Tornow has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to tailor the restoration and create an exact match.
Sundance Dental & Orthodontics inlays and onlays:
- Are stain resistant
- Do not result in tooth sensitivity
- Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
- Strengthen the tooth and guard against further decay or weakening
