Digital CAD/CAM Dentistry
At LivingArt Dentistry in Columbus Circle and Cobble Hill, NYC, we offer inlays and onlays if you have damage or tooth decay within the cusp of a tooth. An inlay is used when a traditional filling has failed since they provide more strength. An onlay is necessary for a significant reconstruction, where it extends out over one or more cusps of the tooth.
Your onlay can be completed in two Visits
During your first visit, the damaged tooth is cleaned and prepared for the 3D digital scan. Within seconds your teeth are rendered into a digital model and sent to our lab technician to uniquely create an inlay or onlay for your tooth. Dr. Levingart will fabricate a temporary filling for your tooth to for protection before your final visit.
At your second appointment, your custom inlay or onlay is ready to be placed on the damaged tooth. Dr. Levingart will make sure that the fit and esthetics is approved and will cement it permanently.
