When Dr. Michael Boyce of Arden Dental Care – Michael S. Boyce DDS in Sacramento repairs a tooth that has decay or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. (We’re talking tooth-specific locale here; it doesn’t matter whether you live in Carmichael, Fair Oaks, or Elk Grove.) If there is a chip, crack or cavity on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often used to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at Arden Dental Care – Michael S. Boyce DDS. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than a complete crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.
At Arden Dental Care – Michael S. Boyce DDS, the inlays and onlays we place for our Carmichael and Fair Oaks patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. Michael Boyce has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to create an exact match.
