General Dentistry Limited offers a multitude of services to help repair and replace damaged or missing teeth. Two of the restorative services we proudly offer are inlays and onlays, which are conservative restorations used to treat damaged or broken teeth.

Benefits Of Inlays And Onlays

Here are some benefits of inlays and onlays compared to other restorative treatments:

  • They are durable. Inlays and onlays are extremely durable as they are made from strong, hardwearing materials that last for decades.
  • They prolong the life of teeth. This dental restoration is fabricated by a laboratory technician and provides support to natural tooth structure.
  • They are custom made. Unlike standard fillings that expand and contract due to temperature and occlusal changes, inlays and onlays provide a stable fit.

Treatment Performed By General Dentistry Limited

At General Dentistry Limited, we can restore your teeth with inlays and onlays if that is determined to be the correct treatment for you. The procedure typically requires two visits. At the first appointment, Dr. Katie Reardon will prepare the tooth and make an impression. While the restoration is being fabricated at the laboratory, we provide a temporary or provisional restoration to protect your tooth until your next appointment. During the second appointment, we will place the inlay or onlay and take the time to ensure it fits correctly.

Let us help restore your smile. Call us today to schedule your appointment for a dental inlay or onlay in Sioux Falls.
