Inlay Restorations

Dental Inlays: Tooth Restorations in Falls Church

Conservative restoration of teeth helps to avoid extraction and unnecessary alteration of healthy dental enamel. While some dentists may be quick to recommend a crown when a tooth is moderately decayed, this involves buffing away parts of your tooth that may still be viable.

When you have experienced significant decay or require a replacement for a large filling, an inlay can be provided to save as much of the tooth as possible.

What Makes an Inlay Different?

While cavities and small instances of tooth decay are filled with either metal amalgam or tooth-colored composite, inlays are prosthetics that replace the enamel.

Your inlay will look almost like a puzzle piece, fabricated to fit precisely to cover areas of decay. Compared to an onlay, an inlay restoration is intended for decay that has not reached the outer walls of teeth. If you are not ready to commit to a dental crown and are looking for more conservative dental treatment, an inlay is recommended.

Dr. Morabito and your wonderful staff - Thank you so much for your kind, welcoming, and kid-friendly attention you gave me and my sons when we came in for the Harrison's 1st dental checkup. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

The Harrisons

Dr. Morabito is an awesome dentist, a great personality with the hift of humor, he is personable, and amazingly manages to choose the very best people to work for him. They are all excellent and most of all - caring and genuine. And with my dental problems, believe me I have had my share of being treated like a "number." I recently flew back to Falls Church from Kansas City to have him do my implants, because I don't trust anyone else.
