Business Description

Mon, Wed, Thur 11 a.m - 7 p.m All cc, cash Until recently, dentists filled and sealed cavities exclusively using a silver and mercury amalgam. Unfortunately, these fillings (or restorations) often weaken teeth due to the large amount of the original tooth that has to be removed. Modern dentistry has increasingly turned to composite fillings as a strong, safe and more natural looking alternative. Composite fillings utilize a soft white plastic substance that includes a hardening agent. Replacing large fillings on back teeth often require a stronger and properly contoured restoration. These are called inlays or onlays depending on their size. These restorations need to be custom-made at an off-site dental lab and two visits may be required. Once the dental office receives the custom inlay or onlay, the patient returns to the dentist's office, where they are bonded into place. Onlays protect teeth similarly as crowns but conserve more natural tooth structure. Onlays should provide decades of service. Our office has performed thousands of these procedures successfully.
