When the chewing surface of a molar is damaged, you may need more than a simple dental filling to restore that tooth.
Suppose a filling isn’t enough to repair the damage, but a full dental crown isn’t needed. In that case, Dr. Farid may recommend an inlay or an onlay as an alternative solution.
- An inlay is a ceramic restoration that’s bonded within the center of the tooth
- An onlay is a ceramic restoration that extends over the edge(s) of the damaged tooth
Instead of having inlays and onlays created at an off-site dental lab, the Harmony Dental Group team fabricates your customized restorations right in our office using our CEREC machine. A computer-aided manufacturing technology, CEREC designs and crafts custom inlays and onlays in one single visit.
