Dental inlays are one of many restorative treatments used to care for damaged or decaying teeth. Our dentist may recommend dental inlays when a tooth’s damage is not serious enough to be repaired with a filling and not extensive enough to warrant the use of a dental crown. Inlays can be made of several types of material, including porcelain, composite, and gold. If you choose an inlay made of porcelain or composite material, your restoration 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, or where the surface where your tooth meets the teeth on the opposite arch. In order to create your custom dental inlay restoration, our dentist will take an impression of the damaged tooth and send it to a dental laboratory, where your customized inlay will be created. This restoration is designed to precisely fit your tooth. Once the completed inlay restoration has been sent back to our office, Dr. Jeffrey Neal will place the inlay on the surface of your tooth so that it is comfortable and feels natural. Once placed, inlays are virtually invisible in the mouth and preserve much of your natural tooth structure, especially if you have chosen a tooth-colored restoration material.
If you have questions about dental inlays and how they can benefit your oral health and function, we welcome you to contact us today. We look forward to enhancing your smile!
