Dental Inlays and Onlays in North Vancouver
As you smile, talk, chew, clench and grind through life, the tops of your teeth will start to deteriorate over time. How severe the damage will get typically depends on diet, lifestyle and other factors, but luckily our dental team at Norgate Dental offers inlays and onlays to treat the issue.
How Do Inlays and Onlays Work?
Think of inlays and onlays as less invasive dental crowns, not necessarily in terms of the procedure but in their size, as these restorative dental treatments are designed to cover the tooth’s chewing surface alone rather than the entire tooth. Inlays cover the raised ridges between the cusps of the tooth while onlays sit flat against the very top of the tooth.
Bring Back Your Bite with Inlays and Onlays
Protecting the chewing surface of your teeth is convenient and cost-effective if your dentist decides that inlays or onlays are the best course of restorative treatment for your dental needs.
