Bite. Crack. Ouch!
A cracked or broken tooth is a real problem. Unlike other bones in your body, a broken tooth will not heal itself and needs to be cared for immediately. Depending on the extent and location of the damage, your dentist will likely recommend an inlay, an onlay, or a crown.
All versions of the same idea, these restorative dentistry treatments are custom-made covers to protect your tooth and restore it to its full, healthy, and functioning condition.
Another reason you may need an inlay, onlay, or a crown is due to extensive tooth decay breaking down your tooth that requires more than a simple filling to fix.
Here’s how your options compare:
Inlays and onlays can be a great intermediate solution between a filling and a crown. Health Centered Dentistry can help determine if you need an inlay or onlay. If you do, here are some of the benefits:
If you’re in the Midland area and need an inlay or onlay, Dr. Bell has you covered! With the help of our same-day milling technology, we can complete the whole process in a single visit!
The tooth will still be prepared with a good cleaning, but instead of taking impressions, the dentist uses digital technology to take a photo of your tooth and create a perfect inlay/onlay right there in the office. You’ll relax until it is ready and they will place it on your tooth, all in one day.
