Discover the Beauty of Inlays and Onlays: Restoring Your Smile with Precision

A beautiful smile transformed with the help of inlays and onlays.

In modern dentistry, the focus has shifted towards cosmetic procedures, leaving traditional metal restorations behind. At Metro Decatur Dental Group PC, we pride ourselves on offering the highest standard of care, providing “white” restorations that seamlessly blend with your natural tooth shade. Whether you require cosmetic repairs or functional restorations, we have a range of options to cater to your specific needs, ensuring a confident smile for you in Decatur, GA.

Cosmetic Restorations for a Radiant Smile When it comes to restoring your teeth, we offer various cosmetic restorations to address different dental issues:

  • Resin Fillings: Ideal for filling small to medium defects caused by decay, fractures, or staining, these tooth-colored restorations are made of composite material that is both durable and visually appealing. We opt for resin fillings when the defect is confined to the original tooth, providing a simple and cost-effective solution.
  • Porcelain Crowns: Crafted from beautiful white porcelain, crowns encompass the entire tooth, offering complete coverage. These restorations are suitable for extensively damaged teeth, post Root Canal Therapy, or to create a fixed bridge when replacing missing teeth.
  • Implants: In cases of missing teeth, we utilize titanium implants to anchor a prosthetic tooth firmly in the jaw bone. This process, called osseointegration, ensures a stable foundation for the final porcelain crown, effectively restoring a missing tooth and its function within the dental arch.

Introducing Inlays and Onlays Inlays and onlays are exceptional porcelain restorations that seamlessly replace defects in your teeth. They are custom-made by our skilled Master Technician in our Decatur-based laboratory, ensuring precision and an impeccable fit. These restorations are like solving a jigsaw puzzle, fitting perfectly into the prepared tooth and transforming it into a complete masterpiece.

Inlays: When a significant portion of the tooth’s center is missing, along with the adjacent side that meets the neighboring tooth (but not involving the cusps), inlays provide an ideal solution for restoration.

Onlays: Offering a larger and more comprehensive restoration, onlays are used when the defect extends to the center, sides, and cusps of the tooth.

Advantages of Inlays and Onlays

  • Preservation of Healthy Tooth Structure: Unlike crowns that require extensive preparation, inlays and onlays are more conservative, maintaining the healthy parts of your tooth while effectively restoring the damaged areas.
  • Aesthetically Pleasing: These cosmetic restorations blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, bringing a radiant “white” appearance to your smile, making them virtually invisible.
  • Enhanced Strength and Durability: Inlays and onlays are bonded to the tooth, making it 75% stronger than before. The use of high-quality materials ensures resistance to traumatic forces, providing long-lasting results.
  • Safe and Less Invasive: Inlays and onlays offer a safer alternative to crowns, and their superior strength and durability make them a better choice than composite fillings.
  • Cost-Effective: Depending on the extent of the restoration, inlays and onlays may be a more affordable option compared to full porcelain crowns.
