Porcelain Dental Inlays / Onlays

Serving Hobbs, Odessa, Southeast New Mexico and West Texas


Tooth Bonding Carlsbad

Cavities caused by decay are no match for an LVI-trained dentist like Dr. B.J. Henderson. With today's safe, strong dental materials, teeth that have been affected by decay can be restored in a few simple visits with porcelain onlays and inlays. If you live in Southeast New Mexico and West Texas, Dr. Henderson can provide you with exceptional dental care and natural-looking, long-lasting porcelain onlays and inlays.

What Exactly Are Onlays and Inlays?

Onlays and inlays are two types of indirect fillings that Dr. Henderson uses to strengthen a tooth after it has been harmed by decay. Made of a safe composite dental material, these fillings offer more coverage and protection than simple dental bonding material and are a good alternative to the more invasive dental crown procedure. Onlays and inlays are created by our lab and designed to fit your unique specifications. They tend to last longer than regular porcelain fillings and can strengthen a tooth by as much as seventy-five percent.

Inlays — These solid fillings, made of high quality porcelain, are used to "fill-in" the enamel that has been removed due to decay.

Onlays — These fillings, often referred to as partial crowns, cover more surface area than inlays and are placed over the cusp area of teeth.

The Procedure

In just two short visits to our New Mexico dental office, our team can effectively eliminate decay and restore your tooth to full strength. During your first visit, Dr. Henderson will remove the cavity. After taking an impression of your tooth, the measurements are sent to our skilled laboratory technicians and a temporary filling is placed. Your inlay or onlay is expertly designed and then mailed to our practice. During your second visit, Dr. Henderson replaces the temporary filling with your new restoration. The new filling is bonded in place and further shaped to fit your bite perfectly.
