Dental Inlays and Onlays: The Conservative Alternative to Dental Crowns

Repair the Surface of Your Teeth After Decay or Damage

When it comes to repairing your teeth, we often find that patients feel unsure or uncomfortable about some treatments. For example, some patients are cautious about damaging their existing teeth with procedures such as dental crowns because they sometimes require the tooth be filed down. For patients that desire a less invasive treatment alternative, Dr. Daren Becker can offer dental inlays and onlays for the following dental restorations:

  • Filling restoration
  • Root canal restoration
  • Treat tooth decay or structural damage

Minimally-Invasive Treatment Options

Dental inlays and onlays are a reliable, stable alterative to dental crowns. Inlays are applied to damage within the cusps of the tooth, typically rebuilding a small portion of the chewing surface to restore bite function. Onlays are like a partial crown, covering more of the surface of the tooth and are ideal for larger areas of damage.

Despite their numerous benefits for many patients, there are a limited number of dentists that have undergone training for inlays and onlays. Dr. Becker has dedicated additional time to furthering his dental expertise to offer this alternative treatment to his patients in Atlanta, GA.

High Quality Materials. Stable, Long-Lasting Restorations.

During your first appointment with Dr. Becker, he will take a digital impression of your tooth to send to a lab for the inlay or onlay to be made. A temporary may be used to protect your tooth until your permanent one is prepared. During your second appointment, the temporary is removed and the permanent inlay or onlay is placed. You can enjoy the following benefits from this treatment:

  • Save more of your natural tooth
  • More precise fit with exceptional longevity
  • Greater capacity to keep bacteria out
  • Resistant to staining, so color will not change
  • Strengthen the tooth structure
