If your teeth have sustained damage, our dentist may recommend dental inlays or onlays to repair and restore them. Our inlays and onlays are made from tooth-colored materials to ensure beautiful results and minimize the amount of your natural tooth structure that will need to be removed in order to repair your teeth. For more information about tooth-colored inlays and onlays in Fort Lee, New Jersey, and to make an appointment with Dr. Joel Singer, call our office today at (201) 429-0097.
Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are used to repair damage or decay. If the damage is not extensive enough to warrant the use of a dental crown but is too serious to be repaired with a filling, our experienced dentist may recommend a dental inlay or onlay. Also known as partial crowns, inlays and onlays are custom-created from tooth-colored materials such as porcelain or composite resin. We have chosen to use tooth-colored materials because they provide better long-term results and are less invasive and damaging to your teeth to place. Our dentist will ensure that your custom inlay or onlay perfectly fits your tooth to restore the health, function and appearance of your smile. Once placed, they are virtually undetectable in the mouth and conserve much of your natural tooth structure.
Both inlays and onlays are used to restore damaged teeth. The difference between a dental inlay and a dental onlay is that an inlay is used when the damage does not reach the cusps of the tooth, while a dental onlay is used when the damage extends to one or more of the cusps. We will help you determine whether you need a dental inlay or onlay to restore your smile.
