A relatively small damage to the tooth does not affect the nerve and we are pleased to restore it following cosmetic dentistry guidelines by placing a white composite filling or a porcelain inlay or onlay. Composite is a “plastic” material used to cover the tooth after decay is removed.
Inlays and onlays are porcelain fillings. Nothing replicates natural enamel and dentin better that porcelain. We construct pure porcelain inlays and onlays for the most natural cosmetic solutions.
If an extensive damage affects or will affect the tooth nerve, we restore it by covering it with an onlay or a crown after root canal treatment. Today onlays are the tooth friendly alternative to crowns.
