Inlays, onlays, and the value of cosmetic dentistry

Your Jacksonville FL dentist Dr. Tiffany Shields understands that cosmetic dentistry can be intimidating in terms of cost. But we also know that a perfect smile projects confidence, friendliness, and enriches your earning potential! When more than half of a tooth’s biting surface is damaged, a dentist will often use inlays and onlays to restore the appearance and function of the teeth.

Inlays can be made of gold, porcelain, or a composite resin. Gold was once the most popular metal, but porcelain is growing in popularity as it more closely resembles natural teeth. The inlay or onlay pieces are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth and cover and strengthen damaged areas.

If you’re interested in restoring the appearance and function of your teeth through inlays or onlays, contact the team at Smiles by Shields today!
