Inlays and onlays are loosely-related dental techniques used primarily to improve the appearance and functionality of teeth. At Smile Big Dental Specialists, we use inlays and onlays in our Oakbrook Terrace, IL practice because we are confident in their effectiveness. Inlays are similar to fillings, and we use them to fill the hole created by a cavity. Onlays fit inside the tooth as well, but they extend to the surface – making them a better choice for more extensive damage.
Why Inlays and Onlays Can Help
There can be several reasons why someone might need inlays or onlays. They provide plenty of advantages to those who receive them from our dentists. Inlays and onlays will improve the look and durability of any tooth that has them. And most importantly, they keep your teeth happy, healthy, and free from decay.
