Dental Inlays & Onlays in Carlsbad, CA
Do you have a severely damaged or decayed tooth? Have you been told a dental filling isn’t the right option for restoring your smile? At Carlsbad Coastal Dental, we are proud to offer both composite and porcelain restorations for our patients interested in restoring their smile and protecting their tooth from additional decay or damage.
At Carlsbad Coastal Dental we are proud to offer dental inlays for our patients with decay or damage a filling cannot treat. Inlays are used when the damage or decay is within the cusps (outer edges) of your tooth. The inlay is bonded to your tooth, preventing additional decay or damage.
Our dental onlays are quite similar to our inlays, however, can be used when the damage or decay extends beyond the cusps of your tooth. Onlays can be a great option when the damage or decay is too extensive for a filling but does not require a dental crown.
Both our dental inlays and dental onlays can be created using porcelain or composite depending upon your preference.
