– Houston, TX –
Inlays and Onlays can be defined as pieces that are bonded or attached to the damaged area of a tooth. They are mostly made of composite resin, porcelain, or gold. An inlay is pretty much like a dental filling. It is generally used inside the cusps of the teeth. Similarly, as the name suggests an onlays extends over one or multiple cusps of the teeth.
Gold has been traditionally used when it comes to inlays or onlays. Though, the demand for porcelain has been increasing rapidly in recent years due to its color and strength. The color of porcelain matches the color of natural teeth. Hence, making inlays or Onlays in East Downtown is an ideal choice!
