When Dr. Kerry M. Goad of The Richardson Dentist-Kerry M. Goad, DDS in Richardson repairs a tooth that has dental caries 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 tooth decay on the biting surface of a tooth, we often create an onlay or inlay to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at The Richardson Dentist-Kerry M. Goad, DDS. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than a complete crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.
The inlays and onlays we place for our patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. Kerry M. Goad has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to shape the restoration and create an exact match.
The Richardson Dentist-Kerry M. Goad, DDS inlays and onlays:
- Are stain resistant
- Do not bring about tooth sensitivity
- Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
- Strengthen the tooth and protect against further decay or weakening
