Sometimes, the decay in your tooth may be too large to remove and fill with traditional fillings. If you experience large areas of decay, we may opt to fill the cavity with a porcelain inlay or onlay restoration. An inlay sits inside the chewing surface of the tooth up to the cusps, while an onlay covers the surface and the cusps of the tooth. With our CEREC technology, your porcelain restorations can be made right in our office. Dr. Crosby will bond the restoration to your tooth, and in many cases, it actually helps improve the structural integrity of your tooth.
