LA Cosmetic Dentist Uses More Durable Cavity Treatment than Traditional Fillings

LOS ANGELES, CA (Press Release)— With the use of inlay and onlay cavity treatment, LA cosmetic dentist Dr. Neda Naim is providing more durable cavity solutions than traditional fillings for single tooth and multiple tooth cavity treatment.

Inlays and onlays correct any tooth decay or cavities that form on either the points of a tooth (cusps) or the grooves in the center of the tooth. Whereas traditional dental fillings are placed on the damaged area and hardened with a UV light without any impressions, inlays and onlays are molded to the damaged area after impressions are taken. Using dental imagery for impressions and avoiding the use of potentially harmful UV light makes for a more precise cavity solution and does significantly less damage to the tooth.

“Fillings were a fine cavity treatment, but it has its faults,” exclaims Dr. Naim, one of California’s top LA dentists. “The point of cavity treatment is to stop tooth decay and save the natural tooth. But, while traditional fillings remove cavities, it can make a tooth up to 50% weaker. Inlays and onlays provide up to a 75% boost to a tooth’s stability and provide precisely fitted molds for teeth.”

Inlays and onlays can be molded using either gold or enamel-colored porcelain. The porcelain treatment results in restored teeth that look so natural that it appears as if there was never a cavity at all adds Dr. Naim, an LA general dentistry expert.

For patients who catch tooth decay in its earlier stages, onlay treatment can prevent the need for dental crowns or root canal treatment. Typically this occurs when patients seek treatment in the early stages of tooth decay.

“Whenever we can stop tooth decay using inlay and onlay treatment, we’re avoiding serious dental procedures like crowns, root canals, and even tooth extractions or dental implants,” says Dr. Naim, a skilled LA dental implants practitioner. “We’re avoiding painful procedures and providing added stability to the tooth. What more can a patient ask for?”
