Inlays & Onlays Restore Dental Health and Maintain Aesthetics
Dr. Daniel SW Han offers patients inlays and onlays, among a variety of other restorative dental treatments, in McLean, VA, at Han & Ahn DMD, PC. Inlays and onlays are a fantastic way to restore the strength and natural appearance of teeth. Inlays and onlays use a tooth-colored material, bonded directly over the grooves or onto the dental cusps.
Metal fillings have an unsightly appearance and are composed of potentially hazardous materials. Plus, their application requires considerable tooth reduction. Conversely, the aesthetics, long-term stability, and bonding properties that do not require tooth reduction beyond the area of decay of inlays and onlays make them an advantageous alternative. They can also be used instead of crowns if decay is minimal.
Inlays and onlays are representative of dentistry that beautifully restores teeth to ideal strength and aesthetics. They consist of porcelain or composite resins, which seal bacteria out while appearing natural and protecting teeth for the long term.
Strength, Protection, & Beauty
Inlays and onlays seamlessly strengthen your tooth’s structure with long-lasting and durable material. As inlays and onlays are bonded and sealed directly to your teeth, they are protected from bacteria entering and creating decay. Lastly, the tooth-colored restorations are beautiful and appear completely natural!
Color-Matched to Your Teeth
Dr. Daniel SW Han can expertly match the color of these restorations to your existing teeth, for the most natural looking and undetectable dentistry in McLean. Your smile and confidence will be revitalized by this aesthetically pleasing restoration.
Color isn’t the only thing that is matched to teeth by our dentist in McLean – the contours of your tooth are also precisely replicated. The decayed tooth surface needs to be removed, and then the inlay or onlay replaces its empty space. Inlays lie over the tooth’s grooves while onlays replace tooth cusps. Tooth anatomy is important to retain, in order to preserve your best bite and chewing surfaces.
