A Ginormous Cavity?

Wilson Cosmetic DentistryWhen we repair a decayed or damaged tooth at Wilson Dental Group, the way it’s fixed often depends on the location of the problem.

If there is a chip, crack, or tooth decay on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often the best approach.

Inlays and onlays are are usually bigger than a conventional filling, but smaller than a 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.

Once they’re in place, inlays and onlays are indistinguishable from natural teeth. Inlays and onlays:

  • Are stain resistant
  • Do not bring about tooth sensitivity
  • Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
  • Strengthen the tooth and safeguard against further decay or deterioration

At Wilson Dental Group, we strive for excellence every day. Services include general and cosmetic dentistry, and children’s dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
