Inlays & Onlays
When a tooth has moderate damage, it can now be repaired on the spot, with an inlay or an onlay.
In the past, a tooth with the same decay may have needed a crown, but now, our dentist in Thousand Oaks is happy to repair teeth with simple inlays and onlays from his dental center in Thousand Oaks, CA.
These restorations remove only the damaged area and can patch it with incredible strength that matches the rest of the tooth.
An inlay lies between the cusps of a tooth while an onlay forms the cusps itself. Either way, these are tooth-colored restorations that are composite resins. Their strength lies in how they are bonded directly to teeth, unlike metal fillings that have to be packed in to stay in place.
