Your dentist will place it in the jawbone, which serves as a support for the dental crown or dental bridge. Unlike traditional methods like dentures and bridges, dental implants offer results that look and feel almost like your natural teeth. Once placed, dental implants are permanently secured into place. With regular maintenance and by keeping up with your dental check-ups, your dental implants can last for a lifetime. Need dental implants?

Inlays and Onlays – Inlays and Onlays, also known as indirect fillings, are used when tooth decay is anywhere from mild to moderate or tooth structure is not sufficient enough to support a filling. If there is no damage to the tooth cusps, the inlay can be placed directly on the surface of your tooth. On the other hand, an onlay is used when a greater portion of the tooth is damaged to cover the entire surface of the tooth.
