Lasting Impressions Provides Inlays & Onlays in Colorado Springs
Inlays and Onlays
When more than a third of a tooth’s biting surface is damaged, a dentist will often use an inlay or onlay. Large fillings on back teeth often require a stronger and properly contoured restoration, such as porcelain inlays or onlays. Dr. Platt creates them in the office while you wait, and the onlays are bonded into place using a strong composite material so you leave the office with the new onlay in only one visit. Inlays and onlays protect teeth similarly as crowns, but conserve more natural tooth structure and are a better match to your tooth’s natural color. Dr. Platt uses a Holistic approach to restoring teeth called Biomimetics. This approach matches up dental materials that resemble the strength and make-up of each layer of the natural tooth. By re-building a tooth in this manner we come as close to the natural layering of a tooth as possible. This is the future of dentistry, Today!
