When Drs. David Thompson and Vicki Frey of Dental Designs of Owensboro in Owensboro repairs a tooth that has tooth decay or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. We’re talking tooth-specific locale here.
If there is a chip, crack, or tooth decay on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often created to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at Dental Designs of Owensboro. 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 Dental Designs of Owensboro, the inlays and onlays we place for our patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Drs. David Thompson and Vicki Frey has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to tailor the restoration and create an exact match.
