Restorative Inlays and Onlays Gardena, CA
Do you have a damaged tooth? If so, you’ll likely need a restorative dental procedure. Restorative inlays and onlays in Gardena are a great option if you have dental decay, a shallow crack, or a minor fracture. We can repair the tooth with these restorations and help improve the tooth’s health, strength, and structure.
What Are Restorative Inlays in Gardena?
A dental inlay in Gardena is basically a permanent filling. We recommend these restorations because they last longer and are more durable than composite fillings. The most common materials used to fabricate restorative inlays are gold and porcelain.
Typically, a patient needs an inlay if they have dental decay. During the inlay process, we’ll remove the decay, take a 3D image of the prepared tooth, and use a CAD/CAM system to fabricate the custom filling. If the patient wants a gold inlay, we’ll take an impression of the prepared tooth and send it to a dental lab technician.
Once the inlay is ready, we permanently bond or cement it into the tooth.
