The Benefits of Dental Inlays & Onlays
Unlike metal fillings or caps, which are known to cause further damage to the tooth’s structure over time, dental inlays and onlays are safe. The metal fillings are tightly packed into cavities, putting outward pressure on the tooth’s surrounding area. In response to hot or cold foods, metal fillings also expand and contract. Over time, this weakens the surrounding tooth structure and can cause breakage.
Dental inlays and onlays provide added strength to existing teeth. The application of inlays and onlays, using high-tech bonding materials, became a much more stable and longer-lasting treatment for correcting tooth decay or structure problems.
