When Drs. Blaisdell of Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise repair a tooth that has dental caries 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 Boise, Meridian, or Sun Valley.)
If there is a chip, crack, or cavities 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 Blaisdell Family Dentistry. 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 Blaisdell Family Dentistry, the inlays and onlays we place for our patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Drs. Lynn R. Blaisdell has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to design the restoration and create an exact match.
inlays and onlays:
- Are stain resistant
- Do not result in tooth sensitivity
- Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
- Strengthen the tooth and guard against further decay or degeneration
