Dental Inlays and Onlays in Basalt, CO

Dental inlays and onlays are custom-made restorations designed to repair teeth that are too damaged for a filling but not damaged enough to require a crown. They are made from high-quality materials, such as porcelain or composite resin, ensuring a natural look that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. Inlays fit within the tooth’s cusps, while onlays extend over one or more cusps. They provide a robust, long-lasting solution that preserves your natural tooth structure more than traditional crowns.
