The use of Dental Inlays is a restorative filling that is placed over a cavity that is forming in a tooth. Damage to a tooth through the years from natural decay can cause an inlay or an onlay to be recommended for the restoration of the tooth. Dental decay can cause the tooth to be fractured or damaged. These inlays are made from a precious metal such as gold, with modern ceramics, or with composite resins that will restore your natural smile.
These inlays will be custom designed based on the fit to the fractured tooth. They will be manufactured in a lab so that they fit your tooth with an exact fit. This is a conservative method of restoring a tooth, with little pain, and not as much drilling involved for the tooth.
