Inlays and Onlays

Nearly all of the foods that are eaten every single day and many of the habits that people engage in throughout their lifetime will slowly begin to take their toll on the appearance of one’s teeth as well as their oral health.  Studies continue to show that tooth decay remains one of the most common problems in patients of all ages throughout the world, but there are options available to these people that will allow them to restore the natural look of their teeth as well as their functionality. Dr. Shindler is proud to be able to provide all patients with the advanced options for inlays and onlays that will forever change their smile.

As time goes on, many patients will take a look in the mirror and begin to notice that their teeth are not what they once were.  Even those that continue to brush and floss multiple times a day may experience tooth decay at some point in their life.  Whenever microscopic amounts of food debris are left on the teeth, they will slowly begin to transform into plaque and tartar.  When these substances remain in the mouth too long, they will produce acids that will attack one’s enamel and lead to serious amounts of decay.

For smaller cavities or minute amounts of decay, fillings have been one of the best options for patients that would like a quick and convenient way to restore the integrity of their teeth.  When the decay happens to be on the biting surface of the teeth though, our dentist may suggest that patients need a more comprehensive solution.

Inlays are smaller dental appliances that are attached directly to the biting area of the teeth if the decay has not spread throughout the rest of the tooth.  Our dentist will begin by removing all of the decay and allowing the tooth to dry.  These appliances will then be fixed to the teeth with a powerful bonding agent that can last for years on end.  Onlays are similar, but they will be necessary for more advanced amounts of decay that require the use of restorative dental appliances that extend beyond the biting area of the teeth.
