What Are the Benefits of Replacing My Metal Fillings?
Patients benefit from replacing their metal fillings with restorative inlays or onlays due to their non-toxic nature and ability to seamlessly blend in. In addition, metal amalgam fillings can be detrimental to the teeth, ultimately weakening them by expanding and contracting with changes in temperature.
What Do I Need to Know About Having a Restorative Inlay or Onlay?
First, an examination will be performed by your dentist in Long Beach, which includes X-rays. Then, if we deem that having a restorative inlay or onlay is the best option for you, we will have impressions of your teeth made. This will help us customize the restorative inlay or onlay for your mouth.
Since it will take time to design your restorative inlay or onlay, a temporary one may be provided. When your restorative inlay or onlay is ready, we will prep the teeth with a thorough cleaning. Finally, your custom-made inlay or onlay will be positioned and secured to your teeth for an optimal fit.
