Many of Dr. Nico’s patients have benefited from cosmetic and restorative dentistry over the years. Those who have never experienced the great benefits and convenience of one visit dentistry tend to have a lot of questions, which is perfectly understandable. Tooth decay and tooth damage shouldn’t be taken lightly. If a dental problem goes untreated, it can lead to more serious dental health issues down the road, including the need for a root canal or even tooth loss. It’s for that reason that many patients come to Cosmetic Dentistry of Akron for one visit cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Serving the greater Akron area, Dr. Randolph Nico has been restoring the beauty of smiles and enhancing dental health with state-of-the-art technology for the last 10 years.
About Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are similar dental restorations that are placed on the teeth when a standard filling is not enough to address tooth decay or tooth damage. In general, inlays are like more extensive dental fillings while onlays are used to rebuild and restore the cusps of the teeth. Having inlays or onlays placed will restore your bite strength, reduce pain or sensitivity associated with tooth damage, and reconstruct the appearance of your tooth or teeth. Using CEREC dental restoration technology, these inlays and onlays can be designed, crafted, and set all in one convenient visit.
Dental Problems That Inlays and Onlays Can Address
Inlays and onlays are effective at addressing substantial tooth decay that cannot be treated with a standard dental filling. Chipped and cracked teeth can also be addressed through the use of inlays and onlays. Essentially the degree of your tooth decay or tooth damage will determine the best treatment option for your needs.
Are Inlays and Onlays the Right Solution for Me?
Inlays and onlays are a great option for many people who have experienced damage to their teeth as a result of injury or advanced tooth decay. In general, Dr. Nico prefers using CEREC inlays and onlays rather than CEREC dental crowns. Much of this is due to our approach to same day dentistry. Inlays and onlays involve less preparation of a tooth compared to dental crowns, which means less potential trauma to your healthy tooth structure. Opting for inlays and onlays allows Dr. Randolph Nico to meet your immediate dental care needs while also ensuring your dental health in the long run.
Why inlays and onlays rather than dental crowns?
The primary reason is placing inlays and onlays involves less preparation of a tooth than placing dental crowns. This means there is less potential trauma to the tooth when inlays and onlays are placed, which can prevent further dental problems from occurring down the road.
Another reason is inlays and onlays tend to look more natural. The CEREC inlays and onlays have a sort of chameleon effect when in place, which makes them blend in seamlessly with the color and overall look of your natural teeth.
