Tooth Colored Fillings: Inlays and Onlays

 

Do you have unsightly silver fillings that prevent you from smiling? Dr. Spencer can help!

Utilizing the best materials available, we will replace your silver filling with a natural tooth colored composite material that will add strength and esthetic appeal to your tooth.

For larger, several surface fillings, our lab will fabricate a porcelain inlay or onlay. An inlay is a porcelain restoration that will lay and fill in the occlusal (chewing) surface of the tooth. An onlay, often called a partial crown, will cover both the occlusal and inside/outside surfaces of the tooth while rebuilding the cusps of your teeth that have been weakened from decay. You can expect an inlay or an onlay to last as long as a porcelain crown.
