Dental Inlays and Onlays
If you are in need of a filling or fillings and want the best possible solution, then you are looking for dental inlays or onlays. At the Ft. Lauderdale office we specialize in inlays and onlays, which are fillings that sit on top of or inside a tooth, filling the decayed part of the tooth to maintain tooth structure.
Inlays and onlays are called indirect restorations because an impression is taken and the filling part is fabricated outside of your mouth. This is opposed to a direct restoration, which is done inside your mouth by placing a filling inside the tooth and building it up before the material hardens.
Although direct restorations are less expensive and can usually be done in one procedure, they have limitations. Oftentimes an indirect restoration is required due to the size of the filling or for teeth that are required to be strong to enough to stand up to bite forces.
Our in-house lab in Ft. Lauderdale, for teeth inlays and onlays, allows Dr. Stone to have complete quality control while making the restoration to his exact specifications. Many patients have specifically requested our office to do their inlay or onlay even when given the option of direct restoration.
The peace of mind our patients have when visiting us for dental inlays and onlays is not only because indirect restorations are superior, but because our in-house lab allows for quick turnaround. Our friendly staff, led by Dr. Stone, will help restore your teeth to their original luster. We are more than happy to answer any of your questions, contact us today to learn more.
