Inlays and Onlays in
Plantation

Inlays and onlays are restorative treatments for rear teeth which are moderately decayed, or for cracked teeth where the damage isn’t sufficient to warrant the use of a crown. If you’re looking for a Plantation dental clinic, then a visit to Dr. Gohill can determine whether inlays or onlays are an appropriate treatment to restore the beauty and health of your teeth.

Cosmetic Dental Restorations in Plantation

Inlays and onlays are typically made from tooth-colored materials such as porcelain or synthetic resin and occasionally gold. The resin or porcelain is color matched to your natural teeth for a seamless blend.

What is the difference between inlays and onlays?

Inlays are a procedure which is used to treat decay on the center of the cusps or raised structures which make up the biting surface of rear teeth. Onlays, while being a similar treatment, are used in cases where the decay is more extensive and the fabrication covers one or more tooth cusps.

The benefits of inlays and onlays

  • Natural tooth color which makes them look almost invisible compared to the old-style metal fillings
  • Unlike metal fillings, inlays and onlays won’t contract or expand when they come into contact with temperature, which makes for a great fit
  • Inlays and onlays are amazingly durable and can last for up to 30 years which far exceeds that of any other type of tooth filling
  • Inlays and onlays only require a minimum removal of the surface area while preserving the maximum amount of healthy tooth in order to restore the damaged or decayed area

How is the procedure carried out?

Typically, an inlay or an onlay will require two visits to our dental office. During the first visit, the dentist will make a mold of the tooth which enables our dental technicians to fabricate your permanent inlay or onlay. You’ll be fitted with a temporary cover before you leave to protect your teeth between visits. During the second visit, your permanent inlay or onlay will be secured to the tooth.

I had broken my tooth and this was the nearest place to where I live that’s open on Friday. They are so nice and very helpful here. I love this place and I’m glad google pointed me their way.

As much as I hate any kind of dental work, the people at Plantation Dental Care are so gentle and sweet and wonderful! Thank you PDC! I am so happy that my mom introduced me to you all and can't wait to get my children and husband in as your patients as well! The office is clean and light and bright with such a happy atmosphere. There equipment is pretty high tech too! I've been seeing the same dentist for over 30 years but they are just too far for me to travel. I was so nervous to try someplace new but am so happy I finally did!
