Before beginning treatment, patients will undergo a physical examination of their mouth and teeth. Your specialist will take an impression and an x-ray of your teeth. The impression of your teeth is sent to a lab, where they will create an inlay/onlay tailored to your smile.
On the day of treatment, we will provide you with local anesthesia to numb the affected area. Your dentist will drill into the tooth and removed the decay. Your brand-new inlay/onlay is placed on top of the natural tooth and is composed of durable gold or porcelain material. The inlay/onlay will be cemented into place with a low-density light.
