DENTAL INLAYS AND ONLAYS FOR A BRIGHTER SMILE: FAIRMONT WV
REPLACE YOUR UNSIGHTLY FILLINGS WITH DR. MUSIC’S HELP!
Metallic or plastic-colored fillings can be unsightly, especially when they are prominently placed or spread throughout your smile. Fillings are also prone to wear and stains, meaning they can actually look and function more and more poorly as time goes on. Dr. Music is providing the Clarksburg, Fairmont, Morgantown, and Grafton, WV areas with a solution.
Dental inlays and onlays are custom shaped pieces of porcelain or ceramic that match the size and shape of your filling and provide a tooth-colored alternative to metal or plastic. As an added bonus, porcelain and ceramic are also more resistant to wear, tear, and staining than their counterparts. This means your cosmetically appropriate fillings will last longer.
HOW DO I DECIDE WHICH IS RIGHT FOR ME?
As always, making a decision for your dental health is not always easy or straightforward. Inlays and onlays are safe and effective. If tooth damage is primarily located on the chewing portion of your tooth without damage to the cusps, it’s likely that Dr. Music will suggest an inlay. On the other hand, if one or more cusps is damaged, it’s more likely that you need an onlay.
Only a dentist can make the mongst inlays, onlays, and other dental procedures can only be made by a dentist. Dr. Music is here to help you every step of the way. She will help to educate you about your options and what plan of action, whether corrective or cosmetic, will benefit you the most and fit within your budgetary constraints. If your fillings are becoming discolored or damaged, or you simply want to exchange them for a more cosmetic option like inlays or onlays, call the office today. Dr. Music can quickly and safely get your smile back to beautiful.
