When tooth damage goes beyond the point it can be fixed by a filling alone but doesn’t quite approach the level of needing a crown, a dental inlay or onlay might be an option our dentist suggests. Inlays and onlays function as a sort of patch, with similar color and texture as a natural tooth, making them an effective restoration that is virtually invisible. If you need dental inlays or onlays in Santa Barbara, California, please give us a call at 805-962-5000 to set up an appointment with Dr. Thomas Blake.
