When Drs. J. Scott & Pranee White of White & White in Midlothian repairs a tooth that has decay or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. (We’re talking tooth-specific locale here; it doesn’t matter whether you live in Bon Air, Midlothian VA, or Richmond.) If there is a chip, crack or cavity on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay, inlay or dental crown is often used to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at White & White. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than a complete crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.
At White & White, the inlays and onlays we place for our Bon Air and Midlothian VA clients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Drs. J. Scott & Pranee White has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of cosmetic dentistry to create an exact match.
White & White inlays and onlays:
- Are stain resistant
- Do not cause tooth sensitivity
- Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
- When bonded to the tooth, they strengthen the tooth and prevent further decay or damage
