When Dr. Natalie Goodman of The Lewisville Dentist repairs a tooth that has decay or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. (We’re talking tooth-specific locale here; it doesn’t matter whether you live in Coppell, Valley Ranch, or Flower Mound.) If there is a chip, crack, or cavity on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often used to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at The Lewisville Dentist. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling, yet smaller than a complete crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.
At The Lewisville Dentist, the inlays and onlays we place for our Coppell and Valley Ranch clients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. Natalie Goodman has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to create an exact match.
