Have you been told you have severe decay or damage which will require more than a filling? Considering inlays and onlays in Raleigh, NC? At Brier Creek Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer inlays and onlays for our patients that need more than a dental filling and less than a dental crown to restore their smile.
A dental inlay is a restoration which is used when damage or decay is too extensive for a filling but is still contained within the cusps of the affected tooth. Our inlays are designed to blend with your natural tooth and can provide protection against further decay, damage or infection.
A dental onlay is a restoration much like an inlay; however, a dental onlay is used for repairing damage or decay which extends beyond the cusps of the teeth. Our onlays are also designed to blend seamlessly with your smile and will also protect your affected tooth.
Both dental inlays and onlays provide additional strength and support for a tooth, reducing the risk of further decay, damage or even breaking. Both inlays and onlays require less tooth modification than crowns and do not increase the risk of your tooth breaking like with fillings.
