We offer dental inlays and onlays in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to give you the aesthetic change you want along with full functionality.
Dr. Taylor and Dr. Wagner are happy to give their patients this option because it is a great alternative to dental crowns. Inlays are meant to fix and restore the inner grooves and crevices of a tooth while an onlay repairs the inner grooves and also the outer layer of the tooth. These are wonderful products that have a superior fit, protect weak teeth, display a natural tooth color, are easy to clean, and are strong and stable.
The method of installing your inlay and onlay usually involves two trips to Taylor Wagner Family Dentistry. The first visit will involve your dentist making impressions of your tooth and sending them to a lab so the inlays and onlays can be custom made for you. These can be made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin. While you wait for your inlay or onlay to be made, you will be given a temporary one to wear between visits. Your second visit will involve your dentist removing your temporary inlay or onlay and placing the new one onto the tooth. Once your dentist has found the proper fit, it is polished and shined.
