An inlay or onlay is used to repair a tooth that has been broken or has a large cavity that has been removed. There are times that a filling may not be able to effectively restore the tooth and a root canal resulting in a crown may be too aggressive of a treatment, making an inlay an ideal treatment.
The porcelain inlay is essentially a partial crown and is used to strengthen and restore the tooth back to its original healthy state. The inlay is created and cemented onto the tooth to re-create your beautiful smile.
Inlays are an effective method of treatment. Dr. Britton uses his expertise to guide patients to the best treatment options. He is highly confident in the success and appearance of his inlays and you will be too.
