Advances in dental technology have made it possible to complete even complex restorations in a single appointment. In the past, inlays, onlays and similar restorations could take two to three appointments to finish, but today, we can have your tooth completely restored and ready to use in one day. Our Agoura Hills cosmetic dentist may recommend one if you have a large filling that needs to be replaced or a tooth that is heavily damaged or decayed.
Same day inlays and onlays have many benefits for your smile, including:
1. A conservative alternative to dental crowns
The tooth will require less preparation, which means that more of the natural structure can remain in place. An inlay can be used to repair the center of the tooth while an onlay may be needed to repair damage that includes one or more cusps.
2. A fast process
You will walk through our doors with a damaged tooth, but when you leave, you will have a beautiful new restoration that is ready to use.
3. A more comfortable restoration
There will be no need to return for additional treatments, no temporary inlay and no additional anesthetic shots.
