If your tooth has too much damage for a filling to repair, Dr. Jeffrey Neal may recommend a dental inlay. This restorative treatment works much like a filling, but instead of using a general resin, our dentist will have customized inlays created that fit and blend with your smile. And Who Does Your Teeth only uses porcelain inlays, so you can rest assured that your treatment will leave your smile looking just as beautiful as it has always been. For more information, please contact us at 804-447-1435 and schedule your appointment with our dentist. We are pleased to treat your smile with porcelain dental inlays in Henrico, Virginia!
Dental inlays are used to restore damaged or decaying teeth. If you would like a tooth-colored, long-lasting restoration for your tooth, we may suggest a dental inlay. At our practice, we use inlays that are made from porcelain, which means that it will match the color of your natural teeth and restore your tooth’s health while keeping it aesthetically pleasing.
Inlays are most often used when a tooth’s damage does not reach the cusps of the tooth, which is the surface where your tooth meets its companion on the opposite arch. An inlay can be used when the damage is not extensive enough to warrant the use of a dental crown. To create your dental inlays, our dentist will create an impression of your tooth and send it to a dental laboratory, where they will create a customized inlay that fit the shape and color of your teeth. Dr. Jeffrey Neal will then place the custom-made inlay on the surface of your tooth so that it fits comfortably and perfectly. Once placed, porcelain inlays are virtually undetectable in the mouth and conserve much of your natural tooth structure. We also offer E4D same-day restoration technology at Who Does Your Teeth, which means that depending on your personal situation, we may be able to create your custom porcelain inlay in a single appointment at our office.
If you have questions about porcelain inlays and how they can benefit your smile, we welcome you to call or visit us today. We are eager to care for your smile!
