If your tooth does not have enough remaining tooth structure to support a dental filling, but the tooth is not damaged enough to require a dental crown, Dr. Borys Averbukh may recommend inlays and onlays
in Sarasota, Florida
. Although dental inlays are similar to dental fillings, the work of a dental inlay lies within the cusps, or bumps, on the chewing surface of your tooth. Dental onlays are also called partial crowns. Their work is more extensive than dental inlays, covering more than one cusp of your tooth.
