Inlays and Onlays
There are alternatives to the mercury or amalgam fillings used in the past. Dr. Frey can replace your defective or unsightly fillings with all ceramic inlays and onlays. These state-of-the-art tooth colored restorations are fabricated in the laboratory and bonded to the tooth for added support. Instead of simply being held in by cement, this bonding process can improve the strength and beauty of your tooth. Inlays resemble fillings and are designed to rest inside the cusps of the tooth. Onlays are used for more substantial reconstruction, similar to the inlay, but extending out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth.
