When a tooth has received some damage or decay but there is still healthy enamel left on the tooth, Dr. Chetan Parikh may place a partial crown, or a dental inlay or onlay in Rockville, Maryland. The inlay or onlay is created outside of the mouth and, when placed, will replace the missing part of the tooth. Inlays and onlays can be made using tooth-colored materials in order to complete the natural appearance of your tooth.
At our dental office, we typically place inlays when minimal damage or decay has occurred. Onlays are reserved for more significant decay and damage. After the inlay or onlay has been placed, your tooth will look and feel like new again and your smile will be restored.
Inlays and onlays are designed and crafted to last many years, with the proper care. However, if they become damaged, we do offer solutions to repair the inlay or onlay and restore your smile. For more information about the benefits of dental inlays and onlays and to schedule an appointment with our dentist, please give our dental office, Chetan Parikh, DMD, MDS, DABDSM, a call. We will be happy to discuss your treatment options. We are excited to welcome you and your family into our dental family!
