When Dr. Scott Mason of Mason Cosmetic & Family Dentistry repairs a tooth that has cavities 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 Grapevine, Southlake, or Grapevine.)
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 Mason Cosmetic & 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 Mason Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, the inlays and onlays we place for our patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. Scott Mason has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to tailor the restoration and create an exact match.
Mason Cosmetic & Family Dentistry inlays and onlays:
- Are stain resistant
- Do not cause tooth sensitivity
- Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
- Strengthen the tooth and protect against further decay or deterioration
