What are dental inlays?
Dental inlays are restorations that are used to repair teeth with mild decay and damage that is more than can be treated with a dental filling but does not need a full crown. A dental inlay repairs the area between the cusps of the tooth. When treating a tooth with a dental inlay, much of the original tooth structure is preserved. In order to preserve the beauty of your smile, Dr. Feldman, our skilled dentist, uses white inlays that are discreet and aesthetically pleasing. The treatment to restore your teeth with a dental inlay can be completed in just two comfortable visits to the dental office of James K Feldman DDS. The dental inlay can last for 30 years if given proper care.
What are dental onlays?
Similar to dental inlays, dental onlays are also restorations that are used to restore teeth with more than a filling but less than a crown. A dental onlay covers one of more cusps of the tooth, or the entire biting surface. Dental onlays are also sometimes known as partial crowns.
