Inlays and onlays are a remarkable dental restoration and an essential part of our Traverse City and Alden area cosmetic dentistry. They repair teeth in the strongest, most conservative fashion by bonding directly to the tooth. This requires minimum tooth surface removal and inlays and onlays are tooth-colored, so they look great. Dr. Hutchison can precisely color the material to match your teeth.
Our doctor wants to preserve your teeth however possible, by using the most comfortable equipment and techniques around. If you need to reinforce your smile with an onlay or an inlay, you can count on a comfortable, satisfactory experience from Dr. Hutchison. If the decay is larger, you may still enjoy a beautiful smile with a natural looking crown, that returns full function to teeth.
Inlays and onlays are custom fitted to the area of your tooth that needs to be replaced and can be completed in one visit using the CEREC CAD/CAM system. Dentistry with CEREC technology makes finding dental relief on a busy schedule easy by digitally scanning your tooth, then using CAD/CAM technology to design and mill your all-porcelain restoration right in our office.
