Composite dental inlays and onlays in Midlothian, Virginia, are restorative options that provide an effective and conservative approach to repairing teeth with moderate damage or decay. These restorations are crafted from tooth-colored composite resin, ensuring a seamless blend with natural teeth.

Dental Inlays and Onlays: Differentiated Approach:

Dental inlays and onlays serve specific purposes based on the extent of tooth damage.

  • Inlays: Inlays are placed within the grooves of the tooth, addressing damage that does not extend to the tooth’s cusps.
  • Onlays: Onlays cover a larger area of the tooth, including the cusps, and are used for more extensive damage.

Benefits and Advantages:

Composite dental inlays and onlays offer several benefits that make them a preferred choice for conservative restorations.

  • Natural Appearance: The tooth-colored composite resin ensures inlays and onlays blend seamlessly with surrounding teeth.
  • Preservation of Tooth Structure: Minimal removal of healthy tooth structure is required for placement.
  • Durability: Composite materials are strong and durable, providing long-lasting restorations.

Inlay and Onlay Placement Procedure:

The process of placing composite dental inlays and onlays involves several stages for optimal results.

  • Tooth Preparation: The damaged or decayed portion of the tooth is removed, creating a clean area for the restoration.
  • Impression: An impression of the prepared tooth is taken to create a precise custom inlay or onlay.
  • Restoration Fabrication: Our skilled team create the restoration using tooth-colored composite resin.
  • Placement: The inlay or onlay is carefully placed and bonded to the tooth using specialized dental adhesive.
