Large cavities can be uncomfortable or may even affect the look of your entire smile. Unfortunately, large fillings are not always enough to protect and strengthen a decayed tooth.
To restore the health of your smile without compromising its aesthetics, Donald A. Tucker, DDS, in Buffalo, NY, offers porcelain inlays and onlays that blend in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth.
Why are inlays and onlays such a great development in dentistry?
Cavities can make your teeth very sensitive. Like fillings, inlays and onlays repair and restore damaged teeth, protecting the remaining structure from further decay and relieving discomfort.
These restorations are a more conservative alternative to dental crowns, which require a significant amount of your tooth to be resized.
Unlike an ordinary amalgam filling, the medical-grade ceramic used for inlays and onlays closely mirrors the texture, color, and shine of a natural tooth. Consequently, you can improve your oral health while maintaining a bright smile.
