When Drs. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth of Oceanside Dental Excellence in Oceanside repair a tooth that has cavities or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. We’re talking tooth-specific locale here.
If there is a chip, crack, or decay 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 Oceanside Dental Excellence. 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 Oceanside Dental Excellence, the inlays and onlays we place for our patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Drs. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth have a finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to tailor the restoration and create an exact match.
