Cosmetic / Esthetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is the name given to a group of procedures that are performed to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile. A cosmetic dentist can whiten teeth, replace missing teeth, and repair chipped teeth through a variety of cosmetic dentistry options, including tooth bleaching, porcelain veneers, bonding, porcelain crowns, and dental bridges, etc.

Inlays and Onlays

To repair damage involving over 1/3 of the tooth’s chewing surface, rather than using a simple filling, or a crown, it can be used inlay or onlay.
Inlays and onlays for functional reasons both are made of gold, however, porcelain is now becoming the material of choise because of it’s strength and potential to match the natural color of your tooth.
Usually, inlay or onlay can be placed in two dental visits. At the first visit, the old filling or decay is removed, and the tooth is prepared for the inlay/onlay. The impression of the prepared tooth will be taken and send to a dental laboratory. The impression will be used by dental technician in the laboratory to construct a porcelain or gold inlay/onlay that will fit exactly into your tooth. At this time a temporary sealing on your tooth will be made and will be scheduled a second appointment.
At the second appointment, the temporary is removed and the inlay/onlay will be bonded into the tooth with strong bonding resin, and will be polished smooth.
Typically fillings can reduce the strength of the tooth by up to 50%. Inlays and onlays, however, because they are bonded directly into the tooth with special resin, can actually increase the strength of the tooth up to 75%. As a result, they can last for 10-30 years, and in some cases provide a good alternative to a crown.
