Inlays and Onlays: Premier Dental Care, Rigby and Idaho Falls, ID
Inlays and onlays are one of the restorative dental procedures offered at Premier Dental in Idaho Falls, ID. Dr. Anderson and his team can leverage a dental onlay or inlay when a tooth is fractured but does not need a crown due to sufficient stability.
Inlays and Onlays: Benefits
Inlays and onlays allow us to help you keep more of your natural tooth, which is always a goal at our dental office. People in Rigby, Idaho Falls, and the surrounding area regularly compliment us on our approach of being as minimally invasive as possible.
When it comes to an onlay or inlay, dental professionals often recommend them due to the fact that they can last for decades, provide strength to the tooth–unlike a filling that can take away from the strength of a tooth–, offer stain resistance, and it can even help seal out bacteria.
When comparing a traditional filling, a dental onlay covers the whole biting surface of your tooth. An inlay fills cusp space. Inlays and onlays are made from porcelain, gold, or from composite material that is tooth colored, helping to blend with your smile.
We examine your smile to determine which type of dental inlay and onlay to use and it’s often done in just one visit to our Idaho Falls dental office. If you need more than one visit to complete this procedure, we will place a temporary filling.
