Most people agree that getting a dental filling is one of the most loathsome self-care experiences we put ourselves through in the effort to maintain our health and well being. But what if you could have the benefits of the filling without all the drilling? Or better yet, you could restore your teeth instead of filling them with metal fillers? Dr. Kurt Williams offers biomimetic onlays and inlays as an alternative to traditional dental fillings.
As a biomimetic dentist, Dr. Williams has undergone special training on dental procedures and materials that are designed to preserve as much of the tooth’s natural structure as possible, whereas, traditional dentists will drill away healthy tooth enamel to insert a filling or a crown. This can actually cause more damage to the surrounding teeth and gums.
Biomimetic inlays and onlays can be placed over the surface of the existing tooth to prevent the spread of damage and decay with little or no drilling. The materials used to create the inlay or onlay are designed to mimic the natural color, surface and structure of the tooth as much as possible. In addition to sealing off cavities from further decay, they can repair chipped or cracked teeth and place partial crowns as well.
Biomimetic inlays and onlays have been found to be stronger than traditional fillings, and need replacement less frequently. For more information, contact our office at 888-862-407
