When you look in the mirror and see that your smile isn’t what it used to be, don’t you think that it’s time to get some work done? When you are talking with someone else and you notice them looking at your teeth in an unpleasant manner, don’t you want to get them fixed immediately? Well, instead of letting apathy get the best of you, you should make an appointment with our dentist in Monroe. Dr. Donald Kim is an outstanding artist in his profession, especially when it comes to cosmetic work.

Just a simple inlay or onlay can help your smile regain that shine in many ways:

An inlay can cover up the decalcified areas of your teeth by covering them up with a solid substance, such as porcelain, gold, or composite resin

They can both be cemented into place and last many years

They are both very supportive for the prevention of cavities in the particular spots that they are placed

They are both one in the same, except that an onlay will extend to replace a cusp

A crown can be placed to cover all of the areas that are surrounding the tooth

An onlay will cover up the cusps or missing cusps in order to better achieve a natural look

They are fabricated to perfectly fit over the tooth or teeth in question

They’ll fit over a cuspal fracture and help restore inadequate spots

By simply adding an addition like these onto an inadequately-spaced or under-spaced area of your teeth, you’ll find that your teeth will look like they have regained their cosmetic appeal. Lets all face it, that’s what cosmetic dentistry is all about, restoring the appeal that one once had.
