If you would like to improve the appearance and function of a damaged smile, our dentists may recommend a dental inlay or onlay in Dayton, Ohio. Drs. Quinttus, Budde, and Sullivan generally use these restorations to repair a tooth that is too damaged for a filling but not damaged enough to require a crown. At Rahn Dental Group, we can create and place your inlay or only in just one visit. If you would like to learn more about how we can restore your smile, we invite you to contact us today. We are eager to hear from you soon.

Dental inlays and onlays are used to repair damage that is too extensive for dental fillings, but not big enough to be treated using dental crowns. In fact, dental inlays and onlays are often referred to as “partial crowns.” They are custom made to fit your mouth and restore your smile, using porcelain, composite resin, or gold. When you receive a dental inlay or onlay, our dentists will carefully design and place your restoration so that it fits comfortably and functions properly.

Dental inlays are used when damage does not reach the cusp of the tooth, while dental onlays are provided for damage that extends to one or more of the cusps. Our dentists will determine which restoration is the better option for you during your personal consultation at our practice.
