At Birch Creek Dental, we want to provide only the most necessary and beneficial treatments to our patients. For this reason, we offer dental inlays and onlays, which are conservative restorations that are useful for correcting the damage done by dental decay or injury. We may likely recommend dental inlays and onlays to those who do not need the protection provided by a dental crown but whose tooth also a repair that requires more than a filling.
When Dr. Spencer Hughes provides dental inlays and onlays in Dillon, Montana, they are customized specifically for your tooth. Our dentist can also provide inlays and onlays in a variety of materials, such as porcelain, composite resin or gold. With an inlay or onlay, your tooth’s function, appearance and health is improved.
There is a small difference between dental inlays and dental onlays. An inlay repairs the structures between your tooth’s cusps and an onlay is used to repair one or more cusps. Because onlays repair cusps, they are also referred to as partial crowns. Please contact our office at 406-865-3251 today to schedule a consultation and learn more about whether dental inlays and onlays are right for you.
