temecula partial crownWhat if you have an oral health issue too severe to be treated with a filling, but still minor enough that a full crown isn’t necessary? In these scenarios, we can help with partial crowns! In today’s blog, your Temecula, CA, dentists explain how we can restore smiles with lifelike and custom inlays and onlays.

Issues That Call for Treatment

When do you need to see our team for restorative treatment? We could offer restorations to address minor damage, such as chipped teeth. These can also address cases of tooth decay too severe for a filling to treat, but as we mentioned above, still not severe enough to warrant the placement of a full crown. These partials address the intermediate stages, but offer care that is durable and lifelike to prevent the need for further restoration. We also take steps to ensure the finished result looks natural too!

Inlays and Onlays

The inlays are a small portion of ceramic that fits in between the cusps on top of your teeth. The inlays are a ceramic restoration that fit over the cusps, but not over the entirety of the tooth like a full crown. Our team crafts them from ceramic, which is very strong and able to handle daily bite forces and pressures. In fact, the same mayoral is often used to create crowns, bridges, and even dental implant restorations. We will shade the material to ensure it blends with your smile and offers a lifelike appearance.

A Custom Approach

To begin, we will carefully examine your smile with digital x-rays to assess the severity and position of your decay or infection, and to assess any damage to the tooth. We then use the information to plan treatment with precision. We will numb the tooth or teeth being treated, and remove structure to make room for the restoration and to also take away any decayed portions too. Our team will take detailed images of the prepared teeth and use the portion to design and fabricate a custom restoration. We will check the fit and make any final adjustment before we attach your partial crown.

If you have any questions about inlays and onlays, then contact our team today to learn more.
