Dental Inlays in Tustin, CA
Tustin Cosmetic Dentist
There are an infinite number of factors that work together to either preserve or harm the health of a tooth. The lack of dental hygiene can begin the process of breaking down the health of a tooth leading to a cavity and eventually decay of the tooth entirely.
Because the process of tooth decay is so gradual, there are several treatments used to address it depending on its progress. Dental inlays are used when decay has compromised the structure of a tooth so that it cannot support a tooth filing. Not only are dental inlays more sturdy than traditional composite fillings, they are also far more natural looking, assimilating perfectly to match the appearance of the original tooth.
Depending on your preferences and your dentist’s assessment, he or she may choose from the following materials to create the perfect dental inlay for your tooth:
- Composite Resin

When tooth decay is too extensive for a filling but not yet serious enough to require a full dental crown, your Orange County cosmetic dentist may suggest a dental onlay. Dental onlays, like inlays, restore strength and fill the space of decay without having to use a dental crown. While the two use the same type of restoration, they are not the same in their purpose. Inlays, as the name suggest, are used to fill gaps and cracks within the structure of tooth. Onlays are used to cover the surface of a tooth and provide a smooth onlay for full use of the tooth.
There are two types of dental onlays:
- Direct Onlay – Fitted and prepared in your dental office, this type of onlay is the rarer alternative because the entire process of making and molding the onlay is done from within the dental office.
- Indirect Onlay – The onlay is made in a laboratory based on a mold of your tooth sent in by your dentist. The tooth is prepared and filled with composite resin, after which the onlay is applied over the surface.
