When Drs. Greg & Joanne Szalai of Szalai & Szalai DDS in Detroit repair a tooth that has decay or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. (We’re talking tooth-specific locale here; it doesn’t matter whether you live in Dearborn, Taylor, or Allen Park.) If there is a chip, crack or cavity on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often used to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of restorative dentistry used successfully at Szalai & Szalai DDS in Detroit. They are usually bigger than conventional fillings yet smaller than complete dental crowns. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.
At Szalai & Szalai DDS, the inlays and onlays we place for our Detroit clients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Drs. Greg & Joanne Szalai have the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to create an exact match.
Szalai & Szalai DDS inlays and onlays:
- Are stain resistant
- Do not cause tooth sensitivity
- Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
- When bonded to the tooth, they strengthen the tooth and prevent further decay or damage
We’ll help you keep your smile happy and healthy!
