Dental Inlays and Onlays Nashua, NH
High quality dental inlays & onlays for your good dental health
A severely worn out or sabotaged tooth can not only cause you discomfort but can also affect your appearance. The condition can escalate if you overlook the problem. Dr. Praveena Bhat will restore your structural integrity with a custom made crown which could either be an inlay or an onlay.
Our Procedure For Installing Dental Inlays & Onlay
Dr. Bhat uses ceramic, porcelain fused to metal and gold crown to provide durable restorations. She will take a look at the condition of your mouth in order to understand which material would suit you. Porcelain crown looks the best as it looks as natural as your original tooth.
Visit our dental office situated at Nashua to restore your tooth with well-constructed crowns. Dr. Bhat will first examine your mouth and then take a dental impression. After that, the crown will be manufactured in the lab. She will fix the crown in your mouth once it comes back from the lab.
When You Really Need Dental Inlay & Onlay
For larger cavities or a tooth with decay in more than one area, an inlay or onlay may be the best restorative solution.
The Difference Between Inlays and Onlays
- The difference between an inlay and an onlay is the area of the tooth anatomy being restored. Inlays apply to cavities in the grooves, or pits and fissures, of the tooth’s biting surface.
- Onlays are used when the decay includes the tooth cusps. Both are used to restore areas where tooth decay is present and the tooth structure has been compromised.
Inlays and onlays can be made with either cast gold alloy or with tooth-colored ceramic or porcelain materials. A model of the patient’s natural tooth is made prior to any procedure so that the restoration can be made to replicate the shape and function of the natural tooth.
The shape and fit of the restoration can be verified before being cemented or bonded into place, and the inlay or onlay can be extremely durable.
