Many restoration options are now available to repair teeth with minor to moderate decay or damage. Inlays and onlays are often used as an alternative to traditional dental fillings to repair decayed or damaged teeth. Inlays are applied at the center of a tooth while onlays cover whole of the biting surface of a tooth.

Inlays and onlays offer a host of benefits for your damaged teeth:

  1. They are highly durable
  2. Unlike traditional metal fillings, inlays and onlays can increase the strength of the teeth by more than 75%
  3. Inlays and onlays extend tooth life which means that less dental treatment would be required in the future
  4. Inlays and onlays are less likely to discolor over time
  5. They make it easy for you to clean your teeth because the fit is tailored at all the edges of the tooth
  6. They work better when it comes to sealing teeth from bacteria rather than a composite filling

The installation of inlays and onlays usually takes 2 appointments. During the first appointment, we will numb and prepare the tooth by drilling and removing decay. Then, we will take an impression of the tooth and send it off to a dental laboratory where your custom inlay or onlay will be made.

At the second appointment, we will remove the temporary restoration and then bond the inlay or onlay to fit your teeth perfectly. The procedure will be completed with polishing for a smooth and pleasant look.

Our Happy Customers

"I have nothing but fantastic things to say about this practice. The entire office is just phenomenal - everyone is warm, welcoming, personable, and very customer service oriented. They all remember you when you come in, they engage in friendly conversation and above all, strive to make you feel comfortable. Dr. Prescott is simply wonderful and there is nothing bad that I can say about my experiences with him. My husband and children are also patients, and although we relocated from Fort Mill,SC to Waxhaw, NC it is totally worth the drive to continue under Dr. Prescott's care. I've even referred several of my new neighbors to the practice... they all thought I was nuts to be referring them so far down the road. After their visits, they all raved about Dr. Prescott and his staff and thanked me for referring them. BTW - my kids are 14, 15 and almost 4. Dr. Prescott & team finds a way to connect with each of them despite the age differences. My youngest had his first cleaning here and can't wait to go back to the "mouth doctor"!!"
