When Dr. William Stewart in San Antonio 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 Shavano Park, Leon Springs, or Beorne.) 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 general dentistry tooth restoration used successfully at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than a complete dental crown. 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 William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, the inlays and onlays we place are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Doctor Dr. William Stewart has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to create an exact match.
William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic 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
