When Wes Yemoto of Wes Yemoto Esthetic and Holistic Dentistry in San Jose repairs a tooth that has tooth decay or damage, the procedure chosen often depends on the location of the problem. We’re talking tooth-specific locale here.
If there is a chip, crack, or cavities on the biting surface of a tooth, an onlay or inlay is often created to restore the tooth.
Inlays and onlays are a type of tooth restoration used successfully. 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 Wes Yemoto Esthetic and Holistic Dentistry, the inlays and onlays we place for our patients are indistinguishable from their natural teeth. Dr Yemoto has the finely-honed eye for detail and complete mastery of dental esthetics to design the restoration and create an exact match.
