Onlays & Inlays in Birmingham MI
What are Onlays and Inlays?
Onlays and inlays are restorations that are fitted to a cavity in a tooth and bonded in place. For larger cavities, they are stronger and more durable than a regular filling. They may be used to restore a broken tooth or may replace an existing large filling. They are used when the damage is not severe enough to require a crown. If you have damaged or broken teeth, or potentially need large fillings, inlays and onlays can be a superior alternative to fillings or crowns.
Dr. Sushko uses porcelain inlays and onlays made from a very durable material that is matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Replacing Old Amalgam or “Silver” Fillings
Many people are concerned about their old fillings and are having them replaced. Dr. Sushko can remove and replace your old amalgam of “silver" fillings with inlays and onlays, restoring your teeth to their natural beauty.
Besides being an undetectable tooth-color, the composite materials used for onlays and inlays are superior to the old amalgam fillings. The final result is almost as strong as the natural tooth.
