At Zysik Dental, our Rooseveltown cosmetic dentist and the rest of the staff are here to make sure that you feel proud to show off your smile. To do so, we provide our patients with a variety of options regarding cosmetic services so that we can adjust your smile and make it into that perfect set of teeth you have always dreamed of having. Some of our most popular cosmetic services at Zysik Dental are our dental inlays and onlays. Inlays and onlays are similar to more commonly known dental appliances like dental crowns and dental fillings. Inlays and onlays are used for teeth that are in between the need of a dental filling and dental crown.
While dental inlays and onlays are similar in the problems they correct, they differ in the parts of the tooth that they can cover and correct. For example, a dental inlay is used to fill in spaces between the “cusps” or the small rounded edges at the top of each of your teeth. Conversely, a dental onlay is used to cover either one or more of the cusps of a tooth, or even the entire biting surface of a tooth. Onlays, therefore, provide a greater amount of coverage than an inlay, and so one can be more ideal than the other in varying situations. Dental onlays tend to be more durable and long lasting than dental inlays, and can even last up to thirty years or more. The most important thing to remember is to keep your dental health and hygiene in check in order to preserve any kind of dental restoration. If you have a tooth that is in need of correction, schedule an appointment with our Rooseveltown cosmetic dentist at Zysik Dental, and we can let you know if a dental inlay, onlay, or another restoration is best suited for you.
