Dental-Inlay-beverly-hillsFrequently Asked Questions about Dental Inlays Onlays

Inlays Onlays similar to tooth crowns?

Using traditional tooth crowns or fillings can cause discomfort, especially when the crown is ill-fitting, coming loose, shifting between appointments and having to wait two weeks for a permanent  replacement. With advancements and new procedures performed by a top cosmetic and restorative dentist, alternatives to the old-fashioned tooth crowns, such as inlays or onlays, are often a much better solution and can be fitted in a few short visits.

What are some options for replacing existing metal crowns and how long does the process take?

Similar to crowns and metal free fillings, an inlay is an indirect restoration, involving either porcelain or composite resin, tailored and cemented into place. An onlay, serving the same purpose as an inlay, normally extends further to replace a cusp, or irregularly shaped teeth.

Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist Arthur Glosman can sculpt new smiles and correct irregular shaped teeth using inlays or onlays from porcelain or composite in hours rather than weeks. Guided by today’s most advanced computer technology, Dr. Glosman maintains complete control over every aspect of the dental restoration and looking and feeling younger.
