This treatment is often recommended by our dentist and team if your dental damage is too severe for a filling but not extreme enough for a dental crown. If you are interested in getting this treatment with Dr. Rochelle Riley, call Northwest Dental Medicine Enumclaw at 360-825-2563.
Also known as a partial crown, a dental inlay and onlay is used to restore a smile to its full health and function. This conservative treatment is a great option for those whose smiles have experienced moderate dental damage. Typically, this treatment utilizes porcelain or a composite resin material to restore the smile in a healthy and beautiful way. When placed in the mouth, the inlay or onlay becomes virtually undetectable.
A dental inlay is used when the damage does not reach the cusps of the tooth whereas a dental onlay is used when the damage extends to one or more of the cusps. During your appointment, our dentist will determine which restoration would be best for your smile needs. If you have any questions about the process of getting dental inlays and onlays, we invite you to call our office to set up an appointment with our team.
