Have you been told that you have a severely decayed or damaged tooth? Not a candidate for a traditional dental filling? At Chaparral Valley Dental we are proud to offer dental inlays and onlays in Calgary, AB for our patients that require restorative dentistry and aren’t a candidate for treatment such as a dental filling. Our porcelain inlays and onlays are designed to blend with your natural smile seamlessly, making treatment virtually unnoticeable. Due to the fact they are fabricated with porcelain, our dental inlays and onlays are also highly stain resistant, meaning they’ll stay brighter longer in comparison to most other treatment options.
Although dental inlays and onlays are quite similar, they do serve very different purposes. A dental inlay may be recommended when a patient has extensive decay or damage that cannot be treated using traditional treatment option such as a dental filling. Dental inlays are used to treat damage that is within the cusps (the outer edges) of the affected tooth and can provide additional strength and protection for the tooth while preventing future complication such as additional damage or even decay.
Dental onlays however, may be recommended in the event a patient is not a candidate for a dental filling and has experienced decay or damage that is beyond the cusps of the affected tooth. Just like dental inlays, our porcelain onlays in Calgary are designed to blend with your natural smile, making them a wonderful option for anyone interested in having a beautiful smile.
Both dental inlays and onlays are extremely durable and can last for many years with proper at-home and professional dental care. In the event that your inlay or onlay becomes damaged, simply let us know and we can get your dental work fixed as quickly as possible.
