If the biting surface of your tooth is badly damaged, you may be a good candidate for an inlay or onlay.
District Dental in North Vancouver offers these to our patients, using materials such as porcelain, gold or composite resin. Porcelain tends to be the preferred option, however, due to the fact that it naturally matches the colour of teeth and is quite strong.
Inlays and onlays require two appointments to be properly applied, which will allow us to properly fit the tooth and apply the treatment. An inlay or onlay will not only increase the strength of the formerly damaged tooth, it can do so for 10 to 30 years.
