One dental restoration technique used by a select number of dentists is called inlays and onlays, or indirect fillings. This is a more conservative option to crowns, and can even be a stronger, longer lasting option to tooth decay.
Inlays and onlays are a great permanent solution to tooth damage, both functionally and aesthetically. Indirect fillings are also often times an alternative to traditional fillings, and help repair tooth decay and structural damage. Indirect fillings are pre-made in a dental lab before your appointment, and then bonded in place during your appointment. This is different than traditional fillings, which are both made and placed during your appointment. Stop into Stamford Dental Spa today to discuss your tooth repair options!
