Dental Inlays & Onlays

Extensive Repair for Your Teeth

Custom-made restorations designed just for you.

Occasionally, a tooth may become severely damaged due to trauma or severe decay. At LifeSmiles, our first step is to assess if a metal-free filling can repair your tooth’s strength and structure. However, if you need a more comprehensive restoration, we may use an inlay or onlay.

Dr. Mitchmore typically recommends an inlay or onlay when a large piece of your tooth is missing and needs to be replaced. An inlay or onlay is designed using digital impressions and created at our partner lab. These modern restorations replace the missing part of the tooth with a tooth-colored, strong porcelain material. This non-invasive inlay/only procedure allows our restorative dentist in Houston to rebuild the tooth structure and thus restore the function of your smile.

Inlays are typically used when the damage is in the center of the tooth, whereas onlays are used when the outer surface of the tooth is also damaged. Both inlays and onlays are custom-made and can strengthen your tooth while restoring your health.

    The level of technical expertise is unsurpassed; however, the level of caring is more important to me as a patient. EVERY member of the team has been so kind, seems to genuinely care about my well-being, and has gone BEYOND what one would normally experience in a healthcare environment. I feel valued and truly cared for at your office; you are most appreciated! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I have been to several dentists in my 55-years but never have I found one as wonderful as a person and a dentist. I have told everybody that I can about Dr. Mitchmore and his staff.

    "Whenever anyone would like to get serious about their dental care, Dr. Mitchmore at LifeSmiles is the place to go to. He has the ability to change someone's teeth like you would see on a TV makeover show. His staff is so friendly and non-judgemental that you feel extremely comfortable any time you go to the dentist. I just started going to LifeSmiles a little over a year ago, and now I cannot see myself going anywhere else. I cannot recommend these people enough."
