Fillings age and deteriorate naturally over time. When it’s time to replace an old filling, a dental inlay, made of composite resin, ceramic, or gold, can replace a filling within the tooth’s cusps. Dental onlays are similar but larger and can cover more ground, placed on the inside and outside surfaces of the tooth.
Both inlays and onlays are a safe and effective treatment that Dr. Yang and Dr. Jeng have been performing for years. They have a great deal of experience with both techniques and believe inlays and onlays provide excellent, long-lasting alternatives to fillings.
If you have fillings in need of repair, contact the office. Dr. Yang and Dr. Jeng can help you get a sense of which teeth might need inlays or onlays, if any, and collaborate with you to determine the best route to complete oral health.
