Our team can repair the smile and help individuals achieve the results they truly deserve. When patients are interested in cosmetic solutions and want to improve their smile, they may be faced with many options. Patients with large areas of decay may not be able to use traditional fillings to address the problem, but the decay may not be large enough to warrant a dental crown. This is when Dr. David Lamothe may suggest inlays or onlays for placement in or on a tooth.
Tooth inlays and onlays are ceramic restorations that are fabricated when a tooth’s decay is too small for a crown but too large for traditional fillings. These restorations are made by using impressions of the teeth to create a ceramic inlay or onlay that is bonded in place in the area of decay after it has been effectively treated. Patients will find that inlays and onlays are more conservative than crowns but effective when fillings will be unable to treat the area appropriately.
Dr. David Lamothe can discuss with patients the process needed to repair their smile. He encourages patients to consider all their options to make an educated decision regarding the future of their smile. Contact Smyrna Dental today to book a consultation appointment and discuss with our dental team the ways in which we can enhance, improve, and repair the smile.
