If you have a tooth that needs to be repaired, Los Gatos Dentist Dr. HagShenas can restore strength and function to it with a dental inlay or onlay.
Crafted from composite resin or porcelain, our inlay and onlay restorations are a great way to seal areas of decay and fix wear and tear when a simple tooth filling just will not get the job done.
Sometimes referred to as partial crowns, Inlays and onlays are used when there is still a healthy enamel portion of the tooth. An inlay or onlay is like a puzzle piece that will be fitted into the remaining, healthy portion of the tooth to help increase its strength. This piece is usually crafted out of porcelain or gold, but can also be made of a composite material.
