When Dr. Geren or Dr. Mady of Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria repairs 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 Alexandria, Mt. Vernon, or Alexandria.) 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 tooth restoration used successfully at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than 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 Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry, the inlays and onlays we place for our Alexandria and Mt. Vernon clients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. James D. Geren and Dr. Zeyad Mady have the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of cosmetic dentistry to create an exact match.
Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry 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
