While Dr. Strickland will always try to preserve as much of your tooth structure as possible, sometimes fixing tooth decay effectively means removing a significant portion of your tooth. The removed portion is replaced with a porcelain inlay or onlay, customized by the dentist to fill the space left behind. Traditionally, inlays and onlays were made out of metal, much like traditional filings. Now, porcelain-milled inlays and onlays are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth and provide relief from chewing pain, cavity pain and tooth degeneration.
Dr. Strickland and his team utilize the most up-to-date technological advances in dental equipment and techniques to ensure your satisfaction with your visit and your continued oral health.
