Have A Large Cavity In Your Tooth?

Sherman Oaks Cosmetic Dentistry When Dr. Michael Bjornbak of Sherman Oaks Dental in Sherman Oaks repairs a tooth that has decay or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. (We’re talking tooth-specific locale here; it doesn’t matter whether you live in Van Nuys, Studio City CA, or Sherman Oaks.) If there is a chip, crack or cavity on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often used to restore the tooth.

Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully at Sherman Oaks Dental. They are usually bigger than a conventional filling yet smaller than a complete crown. An inlay is used to fill an area inside the cusp tips or bumps of a tooth. An onlay covers an area that includes more than one cusp.

At Sherman Oaks Dental, the inlays and onlays we place for our Van Nuys and Studio City CA patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr. Michael Bjornbak has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental aesthetics to create an exact match.

Sherman Oaks Dental inlays and onlays:

Are stain resistant
Do not cause tooth sensitivity
Are beautifully matched to natural teeth
When bonded to the tooth, they strengthen the tooth and prevent further decay or damage
