At Elliot Lake Dental Centre we provide restorative dentistry. This type of dentistry is used to treat a wide range of dental problems; from a broken tooth, dental decay to complete reconstruction. Your bite and smile operates together, so when there’s even one tooth out of sync, your overall oral health may begin to suffer. For instance, one missing tooth can eventually change the way your teeth fit together. This is why our Elliot Lake Dentist and team offers comprehensive restorative dental care.
The restorative dentistry care offered at our Elliot Lake Dental Office includes:
Inlays, and Onlays
At Elliot Lake Dental Centre we offer tooth-colored composite resin fillings for all dental restorations.
Inlay and Onlays
A dental inlay or onlay is bigger than a filling and smaller than a crown.
It is bonded or cemented into place.
An inlay is similar to a filling, but it lies within the cusps (bumps) on the chewing surface of your tooth. An onlay is larger than an inlay. It replaces one or more decayed cusps. Inlays or onlays can be made of gold, composite resin (plastic) or ceramics. They can last for 5 years or longer. How long they last depends on:
The material used
The teeth involved
The forces of chewing and dental habits
How well you maintain them with good oral hygiene and regular visits to a dentist
