Preserve more of your tooth structure

Conservation is often used to describe how we preserve the many gifts nature has given us. Your healthy teeth are a gift, an irreplaceable commodity that should be conserved and treasured.

To preserve strong, natural tooth structure at an optimal level, while ridding teeth of bacterial decay or structural damage, Dr. Arooni offers a compromise, where nature and science work in harmony. The restorations ideal for addressing a moderate amount of dental damage, when a filling will not suffice, are called inlays and onlays. They allow the dentist to preserve a maximum amount of healthy dental tissue, while adding structural strength and integrity to restore the damaged tooth.

Natural looking support for the surface or edges of your damaged teeth

When you have tooth decay or mild-to-moderate breakage that requires more help than a filling can provide and yet is not severe enough to require the placement of a crown, Dr. Arooni may recommend placing a porcelain inlay or onlay. As opposed to composite resin dental fillings, onlays and inlays are created by technicians in a ceramics lab using high quality dental porcelain. Dental porcelain is incredibly durable, resists stains, and possesses the lifelike translucence of natural tooth enamel.

A durable treatment alternative to dental crowns

Just like dental crowns, porcelain inlays and onlays provide structural support for compromised teeth. However, unlike crowns, placing an inlay or onlay does not require as much preparation of the enamel, meaning Dr. Arooni can preserve more of your natural tooth structure. Whenever appropriate, Dr. Arooni believes it is best to maintain as much healthy natural tooth as possible.
