Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are a great way to restore teeth that have suffered extensive damage.
Decay, trauma and large fillings can lead to a significant loss of your natural tooth structure. Rather than extracting a heavily damaged tooth, inlays and onlays can save a heavily damaged tooth using fabricated material that is permanently cemented into place.
Inlays are placed into the tooth, whilst onlays are placed on top of the remaining tooth structure.
At our Gold Coast dental practice we can construct inlays and onlays from a range of materials including porcelain, gold and composite resin. Dr Vin will evaluate your tooth to see if it is suitable for an Inlay or Onlay, and can recommend the best restoration material for your individual situation.
To Note: Any dental procedure carries risks which also may depend on your general health. This will be discussed with you prior to any dental intervention.
Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner such as your dentist or your doctor.
