For our patients in Las Vegas, inlays and onlays are an increasingly popular way to repair damaged teeth, fill cavities and address cosmetic concerns.
At Sahara Dental Center, we strive to adopt the most modern procedures and techniques. If you’re struggling with cavities, decay, or minor damage, our Las Vegas inlays and onlays may be the discreet and cost-effective option you’ve been looking for. With our Las Vegas inlays and onlays, patients no longer have to live with ugly metal dental work. Call our offices today to schedule a consultation.
Dental inlays are an exciting alternative to unsightly metal fillings. Made of a tooth-colored composite, inlays seal fillings or decay on the top edges of the tooth. Unlike regular fillings, inlays are undetectable and have strengthening properties that actually improve the strength and health of the overall tooth.
Onlays are slightly more extensive than inlays in that they spread over the top edges of the tooth to provide protection and sealant to more of the tooth. Made from high quality ceramic or porcelain, our onlays are custom made to fit each tooth and are permanently bonded to seal and restore the damaged area.
During your first visit, we will examine the area and take x-rays and impressions of your tooth in order to create an exact mold for your new inlay or onlay. During this time, we will also remove any remaining decay or broken or metal fillings. We will apply a temporary filling to protect your tooth while your customized inlay and onlay is created.
When your inlay or onlay is ready, you will come in to have it placed. Your dentist will carefully fill the cavity or damaged area with your new inlay or onlay. Be sure to check for any discomfort so your dentist can make proper adjustments. Once you and your dentist are satisfied, your inlay will be permanently cemented in place.
Our Las Vegas inlays and onlays are made from quality materials that are made to last. Maintaining your new inlay or onlay requires no special care. To keep your teeth healthy and prevent further damage, be sure to regularly brush and floss your teeth and schedule routine cleanings and examinations.
