Tooth Colored Fillings

Summerlin, Las Vegas Inlays and Onlays

Tooth-colored fillings are an alternative to traditional metal fillings and fall into two categories; direct and indirect. A direct restoration is composite resin applied in one appointment. Indirect restorations (inlays or onlays) are made of porcelain or composite resin materials fabricated by a dental laboratory. These restorations usually take two appointments in our Summerlin, Las Vegas office.

Advantages of Tooth Colored Fillings Among the advantages of tooth-colored fillings are:

  • Life-like aesthetic qualities
  • The preservation of more natural tooth structure
  • Optimal bio-compatibility
  • Minimal risk of allergic reaction
  • No development of metal sensitivity.
