Dr. Caracioni uses inlays and onlays, often called partial crowns, to restore structurally compromised teeth to full function, durability and beauty. When a traditional dental filling is too small to repair a decayed tooth and a dental crown would be gratuitous, a dental inlay or onlay may be appropriate. Inlays are used when the cusp of the tooth is not involved; onlays are recommended when one or more cusps (ridges) of the tooth need repair. Inlays and onlays are made of tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain, for a more natural look.
After a thorough examination, Dr. Caracioni will recommend the best treatment option for your oral health. To learn how Enchanted Smiles can improve your oral health, contact us today.
