Our dentists are happy to offer dental inlays and onlays in Atlanta, Georgia. Inlays and onlays are dental restorations commonly used to help repair damage and decay to your tooth that might not be fixed by a regular dental filling. Also referred to as partial crowns, dental inlays and onlays are custom designed by Dr. Ray H. Morgan Jr. and Dr. Steven M. Shepperd out of porcelain or composite resin. These materials as used specifically so that your restoration will blend in with the surrounding teeth and leave you with a natural looking smile! They also function similar to dental crowns, providing an effective solution for your damaged teeth.
The difference between an inlay and an onlay is that an inlay is used when the damage does not reach the cusps of the tooth. An onlay will most likely be used if the damage to the tooth extends to more area than the cusps. When you meet with our experienced dentists, they will be able to help you determine which restoration will be most effective for you!
