INLAYS & ONLAYS HOLLYWOOD
At Glo Modern Dentistry, we believe that everyone deserves a bright, beautiful smile. When your teeth get damaged, we strive to preserve them with conservative means. One way we do this is through Inlays Or Onlays. This is a great treatment option when your teeth need more than a filling but not a dental crown.
WHAT ARE INLAYS?
Inlays are a type of partial crown. On your tooths biting surface, there are peaks and valleys. When the partial crown is placed in the valleys, it’s called an Inlay.
WHAT ARE ONLAYS?
When your dentist places the partial crown on the peaks or cusps of your tooth, it’s called an Onlay.
HOW WILL MY TEETH LOOK AFTER TREATMENT?Your tooth will look fantastic when you look in the mirror post-treatment. Inlays and Onlays will restore the natural beauty of your teeth. Coming from color-matched ceramics, the restorations will blend in naturally with your other teeth.
IS THE INLAY ONLAY PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
Expect to feel little to no pain or discomfort during your treatment. Our top-rated Hollywood dentist will apply a local anesthetic to the treatment area. With advances in dental pain management, the days of painful procedures are a thing of the past. At Glow Modern Dentistry, we want all patients to have a comfortable dental treatment.
