If a tooth has become decayed and the decay lies within the cusps of the tooth, your experienced dentists may recommend gold or porcelain inlays. Dental inlays are an excellent choice for repairing decayed teeth because they maintain the structural integrity of the tooth, help to prevent further decay, and enhance the aesthetics of the tooth. At Total Dental Fitness, we offer inlays created from porcelain and gold. Gold is more durable than porcelain, while porcelain is tooth-colored and provides a more natural-looking restoration. Dr. Maylath and Dr. McQuirter may also recommend gold and porcelain inlays to replace old metal fillings. We welcome you to call or visit our Bloomfield Hills, Michigan dental office today to learn more about how gold and porcelain inlays can improve your smile.
