Inlays and Onlays
The terms "inlays" and "onlays" are sometimes used interchangeably with "indirect fillings". These tooth restorations are created in a dental laboratory and are used when a tooth is moderately damaged and cannot be fixed using a conventional filling. Inlays and onlays reinforce the structure of the teeth and restore their form while preventing further damage or decay.
Veneers are very thin ceramic shells bonded to the front of teeth to enhance their look. Dentists apply veneers after filing off part of the tooth enamel. Veneers are very natural-looking and may be used to correct various dental problems including misaligned teeth, discolored teeth, and obvious gaps between teeth.
If you have missing teeth, dental implants can completely restore them. Artificial teeth anchored by dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth and are a permanent solution for tooth loss. To maintain them, you will need to practice proper oral hygiene, particularly during the initial post-implant period.
