Maitland Ave Smile Co. provides affordable dental inlays and onlays in Altamonte Springs FL. Inlays and onlays are used to treat minor to advanced cases of tooth decay. They can also address damaged teeth and cosmetic blemishes. They are offered as a more conservative alternative to a dental crown by many dentists. Our dental restorations are highly durable, and can be designed to blend with your teeth for a natural look.
Your dentists in Seminole County, FL, Dr. Miller, Dr. Solberg, and Dr. Williams, offer comprehensive, patient-focused dental care in Central Florida. We provide personalized treatment planning to ensure a custom, high-quality, long-lasting result. Our team of restorative dentists is committed to the long-term success and health of your natural smile. Your dental inlay or onlay will be one of a kind, because it is created from impressions of your mouth.
What To Expect with Inlays and Onlays
Our experienced team will perform a full dental exam to determine whether a dental inlay or dental onlay is right for you. Depending on the specific case, we can use CEREC dental technology to create a custom fit dental inlay or dental onlay in a single visit. We want to give you a great dental experience in a timely manner, so that you can quickly get back to your life.
The process is similar to getting a dental crown. First, your dentist will thoroughly clean the affected area. All tooth decay and bacteria will be removed. He will then scan your tooth to create a 3D image of the area. This scan will be used to craft the restoration. The material used is either composite resin or ceramic. Once your restoration is fabricated, we will carefully “cement” it into place using safe materials during your visit. Lastly, we will do a final check to see if your bite is making proper contact, and you are comfortable with your final result.
An inlay can be used to address moderate tooth decay on the surface of the teeth. Inlays are often used to address tooth decay that is too advanced for a dental filling, but not enough for a dental crown. The goal is to preserve as much as the natural tooth as possible. Inlays can be custom designed to match with your existing teeth for a natural looking result.
Onlays are often referred to as a partial crown. Onlays can address damage in the cusps of the tooth. Onlays are considered a less expensive alternative to a dental crown. Again, your options will depend on the severity of your tooth decay.
