Onlays & Inlays

Onlays and inlays are an excellent way to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible. If this is the restoration of choice, Dr. Ted Fornetti will prepare your tooth very much as he would for a filling.  He will take an impression to have the lab custom fabricate your restoration. Inlays and onlays are custom fabricated in the dental lab with gold or porcelain materials, and fit your tooth like a puzzle piece to restore your tooth. These restorations are directly bonded or cemented to a tooth that has been structurally damaged to the point that a crown is not necessary but a filling won’t fix the problem. Dr. Ted Fornetti will evaluate your tooth to see if an onlay or inlay would be the best choice of restoration for you.
