Sometimes successfully removing tooth decay requires the removal of a portion of your tooth. The removed portion is replaced with a porcelain inlay or onlay giving you a beautiful finished product. This is a conservative option compared to full coverage porcelain crowns.
Drs. Berdahl or Feiock customizes a porcelain inlay or onlay to fill the space left behind when the part of your tooth is removed. Traditionally, inlays and onlays were made out of metal, much like traditional filings. Now, porcelain-milled inlays and onlays are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. They provide relief from chewing discomfort, cavity pain and tooth degeneration and can be made and finished in one appointment.
