Inlays & Onlays

With the use of in-office digital 3D milling and imaging, Dr.Levingart offers same day onlays and dental crowns. These restorations are a simple and effective treatment to cover a tooth that is likely to break or is too damaged to be corrected with a traditional filling.

At Central Park Dentists in NYC, we offer inlays and onlays if you have damage or tooth decay within the cusp of a tooth. An inlay is used similarly to a traditional filling, but looks much more genuine. An onlay is necessary for a significant reconstruction, where it extends out over one or more cusps of the tooth. Often, inlays may replace traditional fillings that failed or fell out, since they are more durable.

WHAT TO EXPECT

FIRST APPOINTMENT

During your first visit, the damaged tooth is cleaned and prepared for the 3D digital scan. Within seconds your teeth are rendered into a digital model and sent to our lab technician to uniquely create an inlay or onlay for your tooth. Dr. Levingart will fabricate a temporary filling for your tooth to for protection before your final visit.

SECOND APPOINTMENT

At your second appointment, your custom inlay or onlay is ready to be placed on the damaged tooth. Dr. Levingart will make sure that the fit and esthetics is approved and will cement it permanently. It’s that simple!
