Have you been diagnosed with severe tooth decay, damage or even infection? Have you been informed that you aren’t a candidate for a traditional restoration such as dental fillings? At Share Dentistry we are proud to offer dental inlays and onlays in Grapevine for our patients that are suffering from dental imperfections but are not a candidate for dental fillings. Not quite sure if you are a candidate for dental inlays or onlays? Feel free to schedule an appointment with Share Dentistry, we would be happy to evaluate your affected tooth to determine the best treatment option for you and your smile.
A dental inlay in Grapevine may be recommended in the event you have decay or damage that is too extensive for a dental filling but does not extend past the cusps of the tooth. During dental inlay treatment, your dentist will use a composite resin material to restore the area and protect it from future damage, decay or even infection.
A dental onlay in Grapevine may be recommended in the event the decay or damage extends past the cusps of your affected tooth. A dental onlay can actually be placed directly over the problem area, providing it with additional support and protection from any decay, damage or infection in the future.
Both dental inlays and onlays are designed to blend with your natural teeth and smile, making the treatment virtually unnoticeable to others.
As mentioned above, certain patients with extensive decay or damage may not be a candidate for traditional restorations such as a dental filling. A dental inlay and/or onlay can be used to restore the affected tooth and protect it from any future complications. Left untreated, decay and damage can become a much more serious problem, resulting in infections and even the loss of the tooth.
