Durable tooth-colored alternatives to fillings and crowns
Onlays and Inlays are restorations that are bonded to the teeth to repair large cavities or to repair damaged teeth. An inlay fits within the grooves between the cusps of your teeth. An onlay is used when the damage is more extensive and fits within the grooves but wraps up and over the cusps covering more of the tooth’s surface.
The CEREC system allows Dr. Aguilar to create beautiful tooth-colored inlays and onlays that match the color and appearance of the rest of your teeth. The restoration has the same translucence, color and brilliance of your natural healthy teeth.
These restorations are made of high-grade porcelain, making them very strong and long lasting. They are a more conservative treatment than getting a crown, as a crown requires that the tooth be shaved or ground down so that the crown will fit correctly. Cutting-edge technology also now makes it possible to create these restorations for all teeth, not just the back ones, and Dr. Aguilar will make sure they match your tooth color and appearance.
