When Dr. Greg Ritchie of Ritchie Dental Group in Marble Falls 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 Marble Falls, Horseshoe Bay, or Burnet.) If there is a chip, crack or cavity on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay or even a dental crown are often used to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at Ritchie Dental Group. 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 Ritchie Dental Group, the inlays and onlays we place for our Marble Falls and Horseshoe Bay clients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. Greg Ritchie has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to create an exact match.
Ritchie Dental Group 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
