Why Choose Inlays and Onlays?
It’s important to keep as much tooth structure as possible. Your natural teeth keep your jawbone strong and contribute to successful oral health. So, if your teeth are attacked by decay or disease, you may lose some tooth structure. However, instead of extracting a problematic tooth, or using a full porcelain crown, Dr. Young can use a porcelain inlay restoration or a porcelain onlay restoration.
At Young Dentistry, we offer inlays and onlays, both of which are an alternative to porcelain crowns. Unlike dental fillings, which Dr. Young applies chairside at his Manahawkin dental office, inlays and onlays are custom-made for each patient created by our porcelain lab artists. An inlay is placed inside the tooth and is tailored to fit the space perfectly. An onlay usually covers the interior and parts of the biting surface of the tooth, providing great strength and beauty at the same time.
Inlays and onlays offer more strength, durability, and stain-resistance than regular dental fillings and also save more tooth structure. If you have teeth weakened by decay, gum disease, root canal, or trauma, ask Dr. Young at Young Dentistry in Manahawkin about inlays and onlays.
