Inlays and Onlays
Atlanta Dental Inlays and Onlays
Atlanta dental inlays and onlays are used to replace silver fillings. They are typically fabricated from a composite resin material, porcelain, or gold. Once placed, they are virtually undetectable in the mouth, and conserve much of your natural tooth structure.
The inlay procedure is a simple one where the substance is fitted into a cavity within the tooth. Once it is fitted the substance is then cemented into place, leaving the patient with a natural even bite surface.
The onlay procedure is similar to the inlay one, but it extends to cover a cusp or elevated portion of the tooth.
