Traditional metal fillings for damaged teeth are outshone by this new and elegant concept. At Loftus Family Dental, we recommend beautiful, custom Inlays and Onlays, made of porcelain, to bring back the beauty of your smile.
Why compromise the beauty of your smile due to unsightly dental fillings? Consider Inlays and Onlays in Post Falls.
Inlays are expertly crafted Porcelain Fillings, skillfully matched to your tooth, and permanently connected to your bone structure by your Loftus Family Dental Dental Specialist. As we have to remove much less of your tooth, our patients generally find an Inlay much more comfortable than having a Dental Crown placed.
Onlays are tailor-made, Porcelain replacements for your chewing cusps and any other area in need of restoration. They assist greatly in repairing teeth damaged by injury or decay. With their precise function and design, they are also referred to as “Partial Crowns” - but fortunately, they do not contain any of the metal materials that can make crowns so off-putting.
Inlays and Onlays can be effective solutions to many of the issues we associate with conventional fillings, and they are a satisfying answer to your cosmetic concerns as well. We can recommend Inlays and/or Onlays in cases such as:
Your first visit will be for our Loftus Family Dental specialist to take images and molds, to help us create your custom Inlays. After numbing your tooth, any remaining fillings or general decay will be removed, preparing your tooth for the Inlay. A temporary filling will be applied, which protects your tooth from damage while your Inlay is prepared in our lab.
On your second visit, your Inlay will be expertly placed by our Dental Specialists. In case of discomfort, we can immediately make adjustments to alleviate that. Then, your Inlay will be cemented in place, and your tooth will be restored.
In Post Falls, Inlays and Onlays only require proper oral hygiene, a healthy diet, and regular visits to our Dentist Office. Call us today to let our Loftus Family Dental team advise you.
