Our patients at Loftus Family Dental Sandpoint are requesting porcelain inlays and onlays over metal amalgam fillings, pleased with how inconspicuous the results are. Not only will your smile be more natural looking, but your teeth will also be protected for years to come.
Porcelain inlays are fast replacing metal fillings: the porcelain matches your tooth, and they happen to offer stronger, better protection than amalgam. More of your tooth can be preserved, unlike what metal requires. As a premier dentist for fantastic inlays and onlays in Sandpoint, Loftus Family Dental Sandpoint likes to provide options for our patients.
Onlays are sometimes called “partial crowns”; they are custom-designed to replace chewing cusps and/or restore damaged parts of teeth, and this allows more of the original tooth to stay intact.
In addition to cosmetic dentistry, inlays and onlays are able to resolve many issues commonly associated with fillings.
It only takes two visits to Loftus Family Dental Sandpoint for seamless and beautiful inlays and onlays in Sandpoint.
Your new dental inlays and onlays are to be treated just like your own teeth: be careful of hard food and treat your mouth with care; nightly flossing and rinsing with mouthwash will kill bad bacteria, and twice daily brushing will help keep your teeth healthier longer.
