Inlays and Onlays Chula Vista


Inlays Chula Vista

A dental inlay is a restoration technique that can be used to treat teeth that have slight decay. The decay is removed by Dr. Pham and then his team creates a dental impression.

This impression is then sent to the lab for custom fabrication of the inlay that will replace the missing part of the tooth. A temporary filling is applied until the permanent inlay is ready.

At a follow-up visit the temporary inlay will be removed and the permanent invidiualized inlay will be inserted.  Dr. Pham recommends using porcelain for this type of restoration due to its resistance to wear and the protection it offers from recurring decay.

Tooth Decay: Inlay


Onlays Chula Vista

Onlays are used to repair a tooth that has slight decay on one or more cusps. Onlays are similar to crowns but, where a crown covers the entire tooth, an onlay covers the tooth cusps and biting surfaces only.

The tooth is preparded by Dr. Pham and his team by creating a dental impression. That is then sent to the lab to customize a permanent porcelain restoration that fits precisely over the tooth’s biting surface.

The team will then remove the decay and apply a temporary restoration. When the custom onlay is ready, the temporary onlay is removed and the permanent one is cemented in place.
