When Dr. Richard Kernagis of Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa 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.
If there is a chip, crack, or decay on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often created to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at Kernagis Dental Excellence. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than a complete crown. An inlay is ushttps://www.sedationdentistrytampa.com/dental-services-tampa/cosmetic-dentistry/ed 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 Kernagis Dental Excellence, the inlays and onlays we place for our patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. Richard Kernagis has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to design the restoration and create an exact match.
