When Dr. Jeff Bynum of Five Star Dental Care in Valrico repairs a tooth that has decay or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. (We’re talking tooth-specific locale here; it doesn’t matter whether you live in Brandon FL, Valrico, or Riverview FL.) If there is a chip, crack or cavity on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often used to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at Five Star Dental Care. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than a complete dental crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.
At Five Star Dental Care, the inlays and onlays we place for our Brandon FL area clients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. Jeff Bynum has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of cosmetic dentistry aesthetics to create an exact match.
Five Star Dental Care inlays and onlays:
- Are stain resistant
- Do not cause tooth sensitivity
- Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
- When bonded to the tooth, they strengthen the tooth and prevent further decay or damage
