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. 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, 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 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
