Why inlays & onlays?
Patients who receive inlays and onlays have too much decay or extensive damage to the tooth for a dental filling, but still have enough of a healthy tooth structure that does not warrant a crown placement. Inlays and onlays allow your Dr. Teeth Houston dentist to complete the restoration while preserving more of the tooth.
Benefits of Inlays & Onlays
There are additional benefits to choosing inlays and onlays over traditional metal fillings.
- The durable construction is tough and made to last for up to three decades of hard-wear.
- Inlays and onlays add about 75 percent added strength to teeth.
- Dental inlays and onlays will prolong the life of a tooth and eliminate the need for future dental restorative treatments.
- When old dental fillings need to be replaced or removed, inlays and onlays are sometimes the reparative option.
