When your tooth’s biting surface has extensive damage, inlays and onlays can make them whole again! Inlays and onlays are another facet of dentistry by our Pasadena dentist that are beautifully crafted to look just like your natural tooth structure. They are a long-term restoration and provide durability and strength to damaged teeth while preserving the appearance of your smile.
Inlays and onlays are like a porcelain filling, bonded to the tooth after decay and damage have been removed from the tooth structure. An inlay is most like a large filling and is used inside the cusp of the tooth. An onlay is a more generous restoration, extending over one or more cusps of the tooth much like a crown.
