At Boulder Valley Dental Center, we offer several options for restorative dentistry, including dental inlays and onlays in Louisville, Colorado. If you have damaged one or more of your teeth, call our office and schedule an appointment with our dentist. Dr. Tracey Hughes can find the right treatment to repair the problem and bring out the best in your smile.
Tooth damage can occur on different areas of your tooth and in different levels of severity. If trauma or decay has created a problem that is too large to be repaired by a filling, but not quite serious enough to be addressed with a dental crown, we may suggest a visit to our office for a dental inlay or onlay.
A dental onlay is used to repair damage that affects the cusps, or chewing and biting surfaces of a tooth. An inlay can be used for damage that does not affect those cusps. Our dentist will examine your smile to help you decide if an inlay or onlay would be a good fit for your smile. Your inlay or onlay will be custom designed to fit your tooth, and some common materials include composite resin, gold and porcelain. Inlays and onlays are both conservative approaches to restoring your tooth that can be comfortably completed in one visit to our office.
If you want a smile that is healthy and attractive down to the smallest detail, call our office at 720-637-3137 to plan an appointment with our dentist and team.
