Do you have extensive decay or damage in one of your teeth? At Sinclair Smiles, we are proud to offer both porcelain inlays and onlays near Solana Beach as an alternative restorative dental treatment to fillings and crowns. In certain situations, a dental filling may actually compromise the structural integrity of your tooth, increasing your risk of a tooth breaking. With porcelain onlays and inlays near El Camino Real, we can protect your tooth while also strengthening it.
Thinking about porcelain inlays in Encinitas? Our porcelain inlays are designed to repair decay and damage that has not extended past the cusps (outer edges) of the affected tooth. Due to being made with porcelain, our dental inlays blend seamlessly with your natural tooth and can provide years of protection from additional decay, damage or infection.
Considering porcelain onlays in Encinitas? Our porcelain onlays are quite similar to our inlays; however, onlays are used when damage or decay has extended past the cusps of your affected tooth. Our porcelain onlays are also designed to blend with your natural smile and provide protection.
Both dental inlays and onlays can be a great option for patients with severe decay or damage that requires more than a filling but doesn’t warrant a dental crown. Inlays and onlays can help strengthen teeth and require minimum tooth modification and enamel removal.
Ready to restore the appearance, function, and health of your tooth? Schedule an appointment with our porcelain inlays & onlays dentist at Sinclair Smiles today! We would be happy to evaluate your affected tooth to determine whether one of our porcelain inlays or onlays in Encinitas are right for you.
